Holy Handmade! A temple of divine design from Wallpaper*

Holy Handmade! A temple of divine design from Wallpaper*

We invite you to fall down on your knees and worship at the altar of Holy Handmade!, our showcase of creativity and collaboration, at Mediateca Santa Teresa, a former church on Via della Moscova, Milan. Our pilgrimage to Salone del Mobile promises to be a truly elevating experience. A non-denominational temple to design, Holy Handmade! leads a ritual celebration of divine inspiration, high craft and the sacred union of miraculous materials, the maker’s mark and the odd infernal machine. Mindful of mindfulness and the collective spiritual quest, we’ve tasked a host of design talent to reimagine ritual, rework worship and reconsider the communal.

Visitors will be invited to confess behind Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec and Lesage Intérieurs’ ‘Veil’, rest in pieces in Tom Dixon and Paper Factor’s sustainable sarcophagus, store their cassocks in Paul Helbers and Smallbone’s wardrobe, light a candle to Martin Brudnizki’s votive holder, and drop a couple of Kostas Murkudis and Gustav van Treeck’s meditation tablets. Elsewhere, they can practice contemplation with Conrad Shawcross’ crystal titanium piece, be mindful with Matteo Thun’s care case, get an olfactory high with Bloc Studios and Haeckels’ scent diffuser, follow Yves Béhar’s Ten Commandments, and dip into Cutler and Gross and Doshi Levien’s time-capsule clutch when Jamie Fobert’s offertory bag is passed round.

The Wallpaper* Holy Handmade! temple also features...

The People’s Religion: A spectacular, vestibule entrance devoted to the design and deity of the people’s religion of football where Juventus will depict how it sees the future of football through its new brand proposition.

Planet Gufram: Offering a credible alternative to creationism, Gufram proves its products are out of this world. ‘A meteorite from Planet Gufram has crashed into the courtyard of Mediateca, spreading its fragments into the Handmade exhibition and recreating an alien ecosystem.’

Le Refuge: Presented by The Invisible Collection and designed by Marc Ange, ‘Le Refuge’ is a contemplative, palm-shaded daybed installation in a lush fantasy setting, by the Green Gallery, in the Mediateca garden.

We look forward to welcoming followers and disciples to Holy Handmade! during Salone del Mobile 2017. And may your god/shaman/other spirit guide travel with you.
