The Design Museum Holon in Israel is set to host a new exhibition curated by trend-forecaster Li Edelkoort, which opens on 3 July 2014 . ‘GATHERING – From Domestic Craft to Contemporary Process’ brings together contemporary design themes that reflect traditional domestic crafts in an attempt to remain connected to authenticity: pleating, draping, layering, ribboning, smocking, wrapping, folding, needleworking, felting, knitting, quilting and baking. However, the designers in ‘GATHERING’ apply new technologies and techniques to completely transform their actions. Christien Meindertsma, Arik Levy, Bertjan Pot, Patricia Urquiola, Richard Hutten, Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, Kiki Van Eijk, Lanzavecchia + Wai are among the vast array of big names that make up the show, which will also feature a survey of the ground-breaking 132 5. ISSEY MIYAKE collection by the legendary Japanese designer. The show closes on 25 October 2014.
