The Passion for Craftmanship at Homo Faber 2018!


Homo Faber Design & Craftsmanship Foundation Will Be Present at Homo Faber 2018 MAYA final3

You know that Homo Faber will take place from 14-30 September 2018 in Venice, Italy! Today, My Design Agenda will tell you what type of Craftsmanship Arts you’ll be able to see at this prestigious event! That’s right, this September visitors to Homo Faber will be able to witness some of the incredible skills and techniques mastered by artisans working in the European luxury sector and presented in the exhibit Discovery and Rediscovery.

The Passion for Craftmanship at Homo Faber 2018!

As you know, the word of luxury conjures money and status, but the original concept of luxury has a deeper meaning. Beneath the beauty of their outward appearance, luxury products can embody the values, culture and time-honoured skills of the master artisans who create them by hand, and Europe has long been a center of excellence for luxury products!

The Passion for Craftmanship at Homo Faber 2018!

The Discovery and Rediscovery Exhibition will showcase 20 very special artisanal techniques inspired by the list of métiers d’art outlined by the French Institut National des Métiers d’Art (INMA). Each technique will be demonstrated by an artisan from a European luxury house whose history and ethos is closely linked to the skill on view.

Legacy – Boca do Lobo's Design & Craftsmanship Testimony

Visitors will be able to interact with master artisans from each of the maisons as they work on site, making beautiful items that require skills such as crystal engraving, gem sculpting, hand weaving, Lunéville embroidery or bookbinding.
