Curated once again by Danish-Italian design duo GamFratesi, MINDCRAFT will showcase the latest in Danish craft and design under the theme of ’In My Mind’. Featuring the works of 16 different participants, the exhibition will range from Cecilie Manz’s refined furniture to Rosa Tolnov Clausen’s textile designs, by way of Ole Jensen’s primal pottery (pictured) and Øivind Alexander Slaatto’s sane hourglasses. The breadth and quality of projects promise to be equally impressive.
12–17 April; Circolo Filologico Milanese, via Clerici 10; www.mindcraftexhibition.com
