The yearly platform for Danish designers, Mindcraft returns to the charming courtyard of Basilica of San Simpliciano. The exhibition has been curated by designer Ditte Hammerstrom this year who has selected 15 rising talents to create large scale installations, each working with a different material. Highlights include a concrete and anodised aluminium chair by Pettersen & Hein (pictured), and an iron architectural bench by Kevin Hviid.
