Advertising between Art and DesignNational Museum of Decorative Arts, produced by the , centres on the advertising group, Grupo 13, founded in Madrid in 1961. The main purpose of Grupo 13 was to dignify advertising in Spain post– autarchy with its obligatory political neutrality. Its development is framed within an era of effervescence of ‘groups’, characterized by idealism and the social nature of their projects. Its members acted unconventionally with the intention of transgressing and violating advertising language, creating many of the images that accompanied us in the media of the day, in multiple fields of consumption in daily life. The last joint activity of Grupo 13 took place in 1978. This exhibition, curated by Javier González Solas, shows a panorama of its production and its activities. It takes us through a timeline to the present day, linking the history of advertising and design with the present– day situation of both disciplines, with the purpose of arousing critical thought on the conceptual similarities between the past and the present.

In an age when everybody can take a photo and edit it right then with filters and applications to get a professional result, there continues to be very few endowed with the skill of drawing what’s in front of them. For this reason, fashion illustration can be understood as a different sort of narration that celebrates a personal and intimate vision. The 22 contemporary masters of illustration that share this exhibition do not however share a specific technique. Some use pencil, others a digital brush and others watercolours... But in all cases the result is an attractive, elegant and unique image, that is, a ‘fine print’. Fina Estampa. Ilustración y Moda (Fine Print: Illustration and Fashion) brings together some 100 works in a single room of the creators who are shaking up the fashion industry and social media. This project has a potential to go viral and a scope that transcends our borders.

The first exhibition presented by the National Museum of Decorative Arts is entitled Las costuras femeninas de la Moda de España (1930 – 2018) (Female Seamstresses in Spanish Fashion), a project organised via collaboration between the EFE News Agency, the Association of Spanish Fashion Creators and the museum itself. The exhibition offers the public a selection of around 50 journalistic photographs from the photo archives of the EFE News Agency, in a dialogue with garments by Spanish designers and accessories like jewellery, hats and shoes. The images of the exhibitions, captured without the editing or preparation that fashion photography requires, show women wearing fashion creations, without the endless filters that specialised magazines tend to employ. Even the models, filing down the catwalks, are not exposed objects, but instead are active individuals doing their professional jobs.

Outside the Box has been curated based on three items to give visibility to the five years of hard work done by the young designers awarded by INJUVE with its grants for creation: these items are the box, the trip and the action of being outside the box. The exhibition presents 17 boxes and objects by young designers with the aim of materialising the dialogue established between the box as an intermediary between the work produced and the work displayed, travel as mediator and a tool for working contexts, places and processes, and as a way of understanding curating as a process involving a long conversation and the fact of being ‘outside the box’, an allusion to the exhibition technique.

MINI presents its innovative and surprising ‘home sweet home’, converted into an urban creation space in the midst of the noise of the big city.

To create this installation entitled Home Urban Home, MINI decided to work with Madrid studio MYYC, active for over a decade and that has demonstrated in each project a great interest in architecture committed to the planet and to innovation in the urban milieu.

This installation, which will be open throughout the month of February at one of the offices of Madrid Design Festival, will prove that the creative use of space for which MINI is a specialist is not only possible, but also enduring, as once the festival has ended, it will be permanently installed to function as a residence and working space for creators from all over the world.

When Paco Muñoz (1925 – 2009) founded Darro in 1959, Spain had just started to emerge from the cultural isolation imposed by the Franco regime. The war and post– war years had severed the architectural postulates of the Modern Movement, which reached Spain in the twenties and whose ideation of rationality proposed inexpensive and functional living spaces. Darro was one of the leaders of this change in the 1950s and 1960s. Two decades devoted to avant– garde design and art that are revealed today as one of most solid and transcendental ventures into Spanish modernity.

After eight years working at Casa & Jardín, one of the Madrid’s most influential interior design firms, the time had come for him to risk setting out on the road toward industrial design trends that were seeking a new housing paradigm. Thus, with Fernando Alonso Martínez as a partner, he founded Darro S in 1959, whose business mission was ‘to produce and exhibit and sell mass pro- duced furniture and home décor’.

The shop was launched as a prestigious showcase of the new trends in art and design that were starting to trickle into the capital. The premises, which until 1962 also operated as an art gallery, had a large basement for furniture display and sale, both produced and designed by the Darro technical team and by oth- er important architects and artists like Javier Carvajal, Miguel Fisac and Equipo 57. A select collection of nordic designs and by the firm Italian Arflex rounded out this ambience of modernity and exclusivity.

Expansion was fast and in only a few short years, the company had points of sale in Seville, Valencia and Bilbao.

However, the fragility of the spanish industrial fabric, export difficulties and a market nearly exclusively limited to subsidised housing developments and a high– brow social class, were offset by the creativity and needs of a series of architects, artists and designers who knew how to meet producers’ demands and create a new culture and way of understanding the living space.

Until the shop closed in 1979, this stage led Darro to diversify
its business, primarily working to sell furniture and home decor and taking on interior design projects. For this exhibition, the Machado– Muñoz Gallery has recovered 60 pieces from its most prolific period.

Some Darro pieces designed by Paco Muñoz and his partners have attained iconic status with the passing of time. This is the case of the Riaza Chair, one of the few and still not extensive list of emblematic Spanish designs, such as the Coderch Lamp and those by Miguel Milá. However, all Darro’s creations are equally deserving of attention and form part of pioneers’ work who wanted to get the spanish to participate in modernity that had been publicly refuted and cast aside.

In this exhibition, Madrid Design Festival pays homage to Contemporary Spanish crafts, a true survivor of all the social, historic and technological changes that have taken place in our popular culture. The combination of design, functionality and artistic wealth of the objects that form part of our daily lives go well beyond a mere comparison to Fine Arts. Talent is an essential quality for creating beautiful and enduring artisan objects, a powerful way of ex- pressing something of ourselves and leaving an indelible imprint on our surroundings. For these reasons, these creations must be endowed with a balanced combination of six core features: culture, legacy, excellence, mastery of the trade, creativity and a strong relationship between the creator and owner of the object. Craftmanship grows increasingly closer every day to contemporary artistic creation. Historic weight positioned craft as old– fashioned and dusty, neither modern nor interesting, and as something to leave behind in the pursuit of progress. However, today, artists and creators understand it as a serene and honest medium, to which they feel attracted and comfortable. Craftsmanship links us to a secular past connected to physical context, and much freer from speculative theories. And this is like a breath of fresh air. The gaze of artists and designers from all disciplines returns with interest and curiosity to the skill, experience and dedication of master craftspeople, generating possibilities of collaboration and professional networking. These networks, ever more frequent —from private consumers to large luxury brand labels that commission these small workshops to produce some of their items—are important so this beauty and knowledge can be inte- grated into our daily lives as they truly are: an extremely important cultural manifestation.

One of the fundamental areas of this exhibition is being able to show not only the end result of the work of these craftspeople, proposing a journey through the diversity of artisan production especially selected for the occasion—precious metals, ceramics, glass, textiles, wood, basketry and metals—but also the different techniques applied within each of these disciplines, and the creative process that each craftsperson follows. And thus viewers will have the opportunity to see some of the best crafts projects to be found all in Spain today.

Curated by journalist and researcher Macarena Navarro – Reverter, author of the book España a mano (Spain by Hand), and produced by La Fábrica, this exhibition contains 117 pieces from 60 studios – including Gordiola, Steve Mono, La Cartuja de Sevilla, Sargadelos, o Martín Azúa– and is a declaration of intent for rethinking the use of the techniques and materials of the past with the creative men- tality and methods of the twenty– first century.

To ensure that a design endures over time, having a great idea is only the beginning. Creating a product is no easy task and nor is designing its packaging. Its appearance must be recognisable to consumers, but in this, like in so many things, aesthetics is not everything. Packaging is design serving design, given that it takes part in the distribution and communication of products, even modifying their material characteristics. From a disciplinary point of view, it is a complex practice that is part of product design and graphic design.

Super– Packaging gives us a journey into the past, present and future of packaging and.or container design. Conceptualised as a fun experience for viewers to see, the show transforms an exhibition room into a supermarket in which we can analyse our routines as consumers through packaging design.

The first section takes us back to the origins of some design milestones, without which we could not understand the commercial landscape of the supermarket, from cans and aerosols to true universal and local icons, such as the Coca– Cola bottle or Cola Cao can.

Then it moves into the present day of packaging, represented by some of our country’s best design studios, exhibiting the different solu- tions provided today to companies that request their services. We can see works in diverse categories by  Botánico Estudio (Salamanca), Sidecar (La Rioja), LaCía and Delamata Design (Madrid), Lavernia&Cienfuegos (Valencia), Estudio Maba and Eduardo del Fraile (Murcia) and Cabello x Mure (Jaén).

Each year some of these studios are honoured at the Pentawards, the most important international awards for packaging design. They value the end result of the design process, including the production, transport, warehousing, logistics, sale and use by clients.

What is the future of packaging design? This future is linked to its disappearance. There are so many problems from the use and abuse of plastics and its by– products, with environmental resources that are nearly exhausted, that the search for alternative designs is vitally important for the industry. Society needs more lightweight and easier to transport packaging that contribute to reducing the carbon footprint and that, furthermore, are recyclable.

Some of the projects presented by Super – Packaging would
be unthinkable with technological advances. Research into new materials is fundamental to increase the functionality of packaging, providing universal solutions adapted to all types of consumers, from the elderly to the youngest. Many designers today are already proposing new ways of thinking and doing. Replacing plastic bottles with strong, edible and biodegradable bubbles, packaging projects manufactured with bioplastics from organic waste, or customised packaging to consumers’ tastes are just a few of the examples we are now starting to see on supermarket shelves of the future.

Produced by La Fábrica and curated by Ana Domínguez Siemens and José María Faerna, this exhibition aspires, on the one hand, to act as recognition to the creatives who devote their lives to packaging design. However, it is an attempt to guide the public’s eye, provoking thought on some daily objects whose appearance reveals much more than it may seem at first glance.

The PET Lamp project came about in 2011 in response to the growing problem of plastic waste in oceans, particularly in the Colombian Amazon. The project tackled this by converting plas- tic bottles into ceiling lamps using the textile techniques of local craftspeople.

To date, PET Lamp has achieved a global dimension that includes craftsperson communities and ‘satellite’ collaborators on several continents. In addition to developing an attractive and con- temporary product, the project is infused with the creative DNA of the natives from each community and captures the identities and folklores of different corners of the world in each object.

The lamps stand out as a unique product, soaked in history and symbolism.

The project is endorsed by several international awards and nominations. The display windows of Zara Home shops will be the perfect setting to display PET Lamp Pikul individually, illus- trating its design and production process for the very first time.

Toast to the best design. QBIKA has been executing projects for over 15 years now, transforming spaces and meeting the needs of its clients, consisting of individuals and companies, hotels and other enterprises.

A living material. The doors and windows of our living spaces are taking on increasingly greater importance, not only with regard to thermal, acoustic and security features, but also their design. Reynaers Aluminium takes all these concepts into account in its aluminium enclosures, which you can see at its new showroom in Madrid. This company's doors, windows and façades—integrated in this spectacular interior design space in Las Letras neighbourhood—adapt to any architectural style.  Colours, finishes, shapes and even home and building automation are all included in this firm's proposals. During the Madrid Design Festival, it will have an exhibition of designer doors and windows that transmit the life and liveliness available with aluminium via its shapes and colours. A material whose apparent neutrality actually can provide great movement, energy and sensations.

Iberia has been teaching us about design for over 90 years: via the aerodynamics of its airplanes, the care taken in designing the cabins, the lovely uniforms of the crews… A relationship between creativity and travel that, during the Madrid Design Festival, shows how it wants to make us fly in a whole new way via From Madrid to Heaven, a large-scale installation at the Only YOU Hotel Atocha . For some time now, Iberia has been supporting talent and creativity in different cultural fields through the initiative Talentoabordo (TalentAllAboard), which will be showcased at the festival by creative studio Preforma from Barcelona. The installation is an immersive creation that takes visitors into the sky/Heaven—and hence its name—thanks to a healthy dose of imagination and great design.

Edible aromas. This space came into being due to Vanessa Redondo's passion to establish synergies between the creative disciplines to create unforgettable experiences. Her designs encompass everything from developing experimental materials to creating interactive spaces. For MDF, We Crave has prepared a gastronomy experience with a debate between the intrinsic essence of being and the essence of an aroma. Both have the same power of seduction, yet are imperceptible and mysterious. Starting from the premise that 80% of our sense of taste depends on aromas, the experience explores the sensory relationship of essential essences to our bodies and minds. A journey through the different layers that comprise the 'essence' of a perfume in every plate and bite, inspired by and created from edible aromas that evoke personal memories and experiences.


Essentia. Revealing the layers of taste

Producto Fresco (Fresh Product) is a di_MAD project that commenced in 2012 and aims to publicize the best product design done over the last year by designers born in and residing in Madrid. Since 2018, the project’s geographic scope has been expanded, now inviting one autonomous community per edition. At Producto Fresco 2019 the guest community is Andalusia. Over the course of the years, Producto Fresco has become established as a platform, showcase and thermometer of breaking news in product design, displaying the most innovative new products and, in parallel, reflecting the needs and problems designers face in their daily work. These range from small businesses that must completely take on production, marketing, promotion and sales functions for their products, to the large companies that integrate design as one of their identifying traits.

The exhibition at the Central de Diseño de Matadero Madrid is a subject of interest by di_MAD in promoting design in a plural, open and intergenerational way, where professional audiences can be inspired by the products on show and the general public has the chance to enjoy and appreciate product design as a fundamental part of culture and their daily lives. Entry to the exhibition is free, but the activities programme (talks, workshops...), organized around the show as well, will require registering in advance.

Marjan van Aubel (born 1985, the Netherlands) is an award-winning solar designer whose innovative practice spans the fields of sustainability, design and technology. In collaboration with scientists, engineers and institutions such as Swarovski and the ECN, the Dutch Energy Centre, van Aubel works to promote extreme energy efficiency through intelligent design. Graduating from the Royal College of Art in 2012 and the Rietveld Academy DesignLAB in 2009, van Aubel has since exhibited at world-class institutions such as the V&A (London), the Design Museum (London) and the Stedelijk Museum (Amsterdam). Her work is also part of the permanent collection at the MoMA in New York, the Vitra Design Museum, Boijmans van Beuningen Museum, The Montreal Museum of Art, and the National Gallery of Victoria in Australia. In 2017, Swarovski named Marjan the Designer of the Future, and in 2016 she received WIRED’s Innovation Award, the Wallpaper Design Award and was chosen to be the Radicale Vernieuwer (Radical Pioneer) Netherlands by Neelie Kroes. She received the London Design festival Emerging Talent medal in 2015 and in 2012 she won the First Prize Dutch Material Award. Marjan van Aubel is also the founder of award-winning sustainable design collective, Caventou and currently teaches at the Design Academy in Eindhoven.

In order to grow adaptation and acceptation of solar energy, solar cells needs to become accessible. Using the power of Design, solar cells can be integrated much more seamlessly into our environment. The energy transition needs to come from different angles, perspectives and industries to make this change happen. By collaborating on different levels and scales. And by turning surfaces and everyday objects into independent power sources, solar cells can be applied into our environment.

Solar Designer Marjan van Aubel sees every surface as an opportunity to harvest energy. In her work she searches for extreme efficiency: she adds double functions to objects and puts them to work. A table is not only a table anymore but also becomes an energy source. She works with solar cells that use the property of color to turn sunlight into electricity, mimicking the process of photosynthesis. Her aim is to make solar technology accessible and desirable; generating electricity at the place you directly need it.

This exhibition integrates pieces by designer Guillermo Santomà into the rooms of the Cerralbo Museum, establishing a peculiar dialogue between the 19th and 21st centuries, the designer’s 12 pieces and the museum’s permanent collection. Santomà views collecting as a sculptural act. Each object in this collection, now homeless and with no possibility of being increased or reorganised, remains trapped in its aesthetic dimension, thus losing the meaning that once was the origin of its genesis. Pieces of all shapes, sizes and utilities coexist in this ex- ceptional space that, due to their sheer numbers, and almost rival the lovely architecture of the building. Santomà’s work is situated somewhere between architecture, industrial design and interior design. One of his most remarkable projects in 2013 was the complete transformation of the Casa Horta, in which the artist did a complete overhaul of a traditional home at the turn of the 20th century.

Wood in Progress, formulated by Finsa by Envisions, aims to provide viewers with an immersive experience via six proposals approached with a clearly experimental mindset, rep- resenting the next step forward in Finsa’s collaboration with the dutch company Envisions. Wood in Progress is the outcome of one year of arduous research into the field of experimental design applied to materials. The six designers from Envisions worked inside the wood company Fin- sa’s factories, alongside its technical teams and specialists. Finsa gave the green light to six of the prototypes presented, proving that the challenge entailed for both companies in this collabora- tion has been overcome by achieving a common goal: providing innovation to the processes and products, with a clearly experi- mental vision.

Soledad Vélez. In 2017 she launched a new album, the successor to Dance and Hunt. Its title is Nuevas Épocas and is the fourth LP in her discography, albeit the first in Spanish, wholly produced with synthesisers and keyboards from different periods. The album was recorded at El Álamo Shock with Guille Mostaza as co-producer, along with Soledad Vélez. It is also the first time that Soledad has shared the production, as she always took charge of all the sound alone. The album includes collaborations from Joe Crepúsculo—who was on Dance and Hunt—and Gerard Alegre from El Último Vecino.


Cumhur Jay. Born in Turkey in 1980, he lived in London until 2006, where he developed his musical style and innate creativity. At the end of 2015 Cumhur Jay started fully focusing on his new project, which started with the 2016 launch of his solo album entitled Dyschronometría, featuring an LP with 12 brilliant rhythmic tracks, which dig into the underground paths of techno.

The project aims to develop, as a group, an intervention plan for the outside space at Matadero Madrid to resolve its habitability and comfort conditions via proposals based on nature that also participate in a strategy of adaptation to climate change.

Mutant Action is a project curated by Matadero Madrid and elii [architecture office]. In a process that will span over at least two years, it will involve an international group of artists, the Technology Innovation Centre for Human Development at the Madrid Polytechnic University (itdUPM) via Living – Lab (with the Madrid City Council and MIT Center for Collective Intelligence). It will bring together sociologists, anthropologists, architects, geologists, botanists, engineers, designers and a long etcetera at the Madrid Town Hall through the Deputy Directorate General of Energy and Climate Change, and the Directorate General of Intervention in the Urban Landscape and Cultural Heritage.

The grounds of Matadero Madrid, with vast spaces without plants or shade, suffers enormously from extreme temperatures, particularly the heat waves that are occurring increasingly more frequently in Madrid. Matadero Madrid will be the case study for applying nature– based solutions, to thus test adaptation responses to climate change (which may also be used as prototypes applicable to other spaces), in parallel transforming it into a much more pleasant and cooler place.

Via its multiple actions, Acción Mutante aims to investigate how art and design generate types of intelligence that can be shared and let us create more ecological cities. Understanding other ways of conceiving the public space via design, being able to test projects that facilitate the replication of the resulting prototypes and that improve the habitability of the place, are some of the fundamental requirements for building a mutant and hybrid, and perhaps even cyborgs, garden for the 21st century among all agents involved.

The magic of light and experimentation. This studio, working in product design and architecture, proposes beautiful yet functional solutions for each project, meticulously selecting materials and the artisan processes, while also incorporating the latest technologies and experimentation. During the Madrid Design Festival, it presents a vertical installation where light travels without interruption via glass, appearing and disappearing to the beat of pulses.
