At The Mass gallery’s invitation, ECAL/University of Art and Design
Lausanne is presenting a selection of Master of Advanced Studies in Design for
Luxury & Craftsmanship student projects.
Founded in 2016 by Masayuki Nishimoto and, as a rule devoted to contemporary art, the gallery welcomes the exhibition in the three sculpturally designed rooms that give the Tokyo minimalist architect Nobuo Araki’s building its distinctive character. The exhibition is organised around three themes (Fine Tableware, Swiss Craftsmanship and Fashion Accessories) and it highlights some of the many collaborations undertaken with Swiss brands from the fields of luxury and craftsmanship. In addition to the exhibited prototypes, a selection of mock-ups and sketches illustrates the students’ creative process.
Opening reception on Friday 23 March, 7pm-9pm
Exhibition from 23 March to 22 April 2018
With the support of the Swiss Embassy in Tokyo and Presence Switzerland
