The coworking space “Loom Princesa” in the centre of Madrid will be the steam boiler of creative energy during the upcoming week of 17th to 21st of February 2020.
Our 12 selected graphic and industrial designers from Austria, Hungary, Malta, Norway, Portugal and Spain will get together to present, evaluate and discuss prototypes of merchandising objects based on key documents from the project partners’ archival holdings.
The fine line our creative minds had to balance while preparing named objects was, how to bridge a historical context depicted by an archival document into merchandise with out-of-the-box changeovers, but without unhinging the relevance the archival treasure has in view of our shared European heritage! Not an easy task – but we are expectantly looking forward to a variety of solutions and products to be presented during and after the residency- as each designer has his/her own creative focus, preferred working method and material, educational background etc.!
