MINI, through its MINI Electric brand, suggests a video installation to reflect on the importance of preserving nature in the city with a main goal: reducing CO2. A sustainable lighting experience produced with minimum power consumption and materials that will turn the iconic vertical garden of CaixaForum into a dreamlike space.

During the daytime, the new electric MINI will play sounds of nature surrounded by plants, as if it were a piece of land-art. At night, the lights will be turned off to give way to a show of animated light particles evocative of moving insects and will travel across the vertical garden to produce a hypnotic effect.

On this occasion, MINI has relied on the Mayice studio to create and build this project. Also, they will work together with Loreto Aycuents on the plant art and with visual artist Pablo Montero to develop the video-art projection.

 


Dates: January 29 to February 16

MultiPly, an 8m-high wooden pavilion that is carbon neutral and made exclusively with American tulipwood will be revealed on the Explanada del Puente del Rey in the Casa de Campo as part of Madrid Design Festival.

This installation is the joint work of the Waugh Thistleton Architects studio, the American Hardwood Export Council (AHEC) and ARUP and is an answer to the greatest challenges in our time: the growing need for housing and the urgency in fighting against climate change. They propose bringing together modular systems and sustainable building materials as a solution.

MultiPly is made up of a series of interconnected spaces that overlap and intertwine to form a labyrinth. Its design has been created and built to encourage visitors to rethink the way we design and build our houses and cities.

The first exhibition devoted to Partricia Urquiola in Madrid mainly focuses on her work as a designer, showing her works for industrial production, occasionally for craft production and frequently for the cross between them both. The exhibition is laid out in a non-chronological way, gathering the pieces around six still life paintings that explore a series of recurrent themes in her line of work and mindset. These six still life paintings are inspired by Dalí’s painting Nature Morte Vivante, where the objects are depicted in motion, breathing life into them. The exhibition revolves around the following pillars: "Transparent things" brings together a collection of objects that have been important throughout his career, a connection between the past and the future; the so-called “Empathic Journeys” between concepts and projects; the concept of “Resistances”, projects where there is some kind of tension; matters related to gender and all its declensions, a theme called “Gender? What Gender?”; and the positive pollination in the creative process reflected in the “Contaminations” part.

The exhibition shows products from the different stages in Urquiola’s career. She founded her own studio in 2001 and designed furniture, carpets, lamps, tableware, vases, fabrics, bathtubs, pottery and tiles, etc. The items reveal her way of tackling different materials and techniques, with inventiveness, creativity and a fresh approach that helps her break away from the traditional standards and often helps her find new answers to old problems. Her interest in color is the ongoing theme of the exhibition and is expressed through moments of rigor or exuberance, while the concern for sustainability is observed in the recurrent use of “Upcycling”, by means of pieces in which recycled materials are reused to produce new objects.

 


Dates: January 30 - March 1
Opening hours: Tuesday to Sunday from 10 am a 9pm
Place: Fernán Gómez. Centro Cultural de la Villa
Curator: Ana Domínguez Siemens
Admission: Free

from 30.01.20 a 01.03.20

We first started hearing about industrial design around a hundred years ago. This was a new discipline that was meant to shape the objects produced by the incipient industry. Until then, there hadn’t been any need for projects in craftsmanship. The arrival of the Industrial Revolution was a life-changing milestone in the history of mankind. Suddenly the designer was expected to create a project that the industry would then materialise. With this dramatic change, the human scene would experience a radical transformation. Houses started changing their look along with their interiors, furniture, implements, devices and appliances. Streets too changed with the emergence of vehicles, whilst workplaces made room for machinery and computers. The new discipline that has shaped all these objects has been industrial design. A tool that is currently essential in any modern setting.

The purpose of this exhibition is to show how industrial design has shaped today's scene. Through the items exhibited and the opinion of several well-known designers, this exhibition analyses some of the products that have helped improve our lives. We will see how design is more than giving shape to a function. On the one hand, design is a great incentive for businesses that consider this creative discipline as the means to selling more products. On the other hand, design is also a means to further modern culture. It reflects the expression of human evolution from a technological point of view and a formal one.

This exhibition will clearly show the influence of the aesthetic trends in product design at different times. Here we will dissect the apparent dilemma between function and shape through outstanding items and we will find out their main characteristics. The exhibition will show works from as far back as the 50s and right up until now. 

This project is the initiative of gallery director Moisés Pérez de Albéniz who has loaned most of the pieces on display from his own private collection. Given the extension and diversity of the themes in this collection, we propose of selection of areas based on the following concepts: to cheapen, improve, complement, speed up, multifunction, reduce, signify and implement.

Additionally, for Madrid Design Festival 2020, JCDecaux will take the I work! Because that’s what I’m like exhibition out onto the streets, at the Plaza de Felipe II from February 1st to 15th, aiming to spread inspiring messages about design as an element that drives change in our environment and in the modern material landscape.

Exhibition of the shortlisted projects for the Toca Madera competition for young professional designers. This exhibition shows the shortlisted projects of the Toca Madera (Touch Wood) competition that received over 40 entries by young professional designers from all over Spain.

The competition was jointly organised by AIDI (Association of Industrial Design Engineers) and AHEC (American Hardwood Export Council). For this competition, the participants were asked to take on the challenge of designing “infinite objects”. In other words, objects that will last forever, using wood as the main component, specifically, American red oak.

During the Madrid Design Festival 2020, a committee of well-known designers will choose the three winners who will win a 5.000€ cash prize. The winners will be announced on 15th February at the COAM venue after a talk about sustainable design.

Wood fibre understood as a new element to produce volumes. This is the starting point of the Astral Bodies installation made by Finsa, pioneer in manufacturing MDF. To develop and conceive this installation, they have relied on the Enorme Studio architecture studio.

Playing with colour and working on the material with a 3D approach, they have created diverse meteorites that will show visitors the many uses of wood fibre and open a new imaginary world. Each meteorite has been digitally created using photogrammetry software and 3D modelling software to produce the final models. A singular and original universe that can be lived in and is coming to Madrid for the very first time after its visit to the last Milan Fashion Week.

Located in the Casa de América venue, Raimunda blends decoration and food inspired by the Latin American universe. Raimunda exercises the same laws of attraction making its customers spread across the terrace and garden with a colonial style and luxuriant plants. An exotic and singular place where you can enjoy a unique meal away from the city hustle and bustle. The menu, overseen by celebrity chef Sergio Fernández, is marked by its exceptional fusion of typical Spanish recipes with more exotic dishes from across the Atlantic. Drinks also stand out for this reason with tributes to Latin American countries like the Creole Mojito, the Rose Caipirosca, the Classic Pisco Sour or the Tomys Margarita.

The kitchen in La Fábrica 21 cooks mouth-watering Spanish and international recipes and offers a carefully chosen menu with a long list of beers made in Spain or abroad. Spiced hummus with aubergine chips and sugar-cane syrup, noodles sautéed with greens and king prawns or German dishes like slow-cooked ham hock with truffled potato mash as well as German salads or the classic Bratwurst and Krakawer sausages.

Firmly set on recovering the authenticity of traditional establishments, El 5 de Tirso has recreated the atmosphere of a select grocer’s shop with a bar made in chestnut wood and natural marble and an open kitchen. Each corner encourages customers to stay and enjoy a good, lengthy chat while eating traditional dishes with a slight remake. For fans of Madrid tapas and the capital’s typical recipes and stews, its menu, overseen by celebrity chef Sergio Fernández is a festival brimming with classic proposals where quality is the key ingredient: skewed olives with Santoña anchovies (gildas), pork cracklings (torreznos), a slice of Spanish omelette (tortilla)...

This bar is an icon of the 80s scene in Madrid and was used by Pedro Almodóvar to film Labyrinth of Passion. It has a crafty atmosphere with industrial touches with its old cider kegs that are now used as tables for groups. The kitchen offers real traditional food from Asturias mixed with a small assortment of dishes that are a tribute to the Spaniards who made good in America, like La Peral cheese with creole sauce or corn bread with fried eggs.

Hydraulic tile. With Private, by STONE TISSUE, Mosaista reinterprets the past, present and future to wrap up last-generation floors and walls. Patterns inspired by fabrics and yarn spinning, with their wefts and subtlety, and different designs are part of the intimacy and environment, public or private. The revised adaptation transferred to cement or hydraulic tiles highlights the colour, the patterns and even the shapes. The use of materials such as cement and marble dust contribute to their quality, the same as wool, cotton or silk, to produce a good fabric. The ideal mix of product and art that shows an intimate and cosy look.

The Tradition of Innovating through Obsidian, which will be in the incredible space of Casa de México in Spain will be part of the Madrid Design Festival 2020. Adrián Rosado, Coordinator of the Bachelor's Degree Program in Industrial Design, had the privilege of being able to coordinate this beautiful project with the collaboration between artisans and students of our faculty with the support of the Ministry of Culture of the Government of the State of Hidalgo.

This project is part of the Tradition to Innovate through Popular Art program of the Faculty of Design and the Government of the State of Hidalgo whose objective is to explore the possibilities of materials, artisanal production processes in search of new concepts that revitalize the craftsmanship and the development of new products for the benefit of the artisan communities of that state.

On this occasion the students and teachers had the opportunity to experiment with the material and work in liaison with the artisanal communities, seeing the entire process from the extraction of the material to its transformation. Craft transformation processes, physical properties and even mystical and magical material were respected.

These results have been complemented with new student design objects. This collection has been in important national and international design forums such as: MACO Zone (CDMX), Mexican Open Design (CDMX), Franz Mayer Museum (CDMX), Garage Dos Casas (San Miguel de Allende, Mexico), Ventura Future ( Milan, Italy), Istituto Europeo Di Design (Milan, Italy), Wanted Design (New York, USA), Design District (London, United Kingdom) and Salón Nude (Valencia, Spain).

This year we will be present with this collection at Casa de México in Madrid from February 5 in which there will be an opening event and the exhibition will remain until February 28, day in which as a closing event will be held a round table with the participation by Ximena Caraza, Director of Casa de México, Father Dr. Cipriano Sánchez García (Rector of the Universidad Anáhuac México), Miguel Hernandez (president of the Circle of Fine Arts), Jaime Hayón, Riccardo Marzullo and Mtro.

This exhibition proposes a view of some of the most iconic pieces in industrial design from the 60s that are on display in the Museo del Traje (Fashion Museum). Through different elements, such as the iconic Brionvega Radio made by the designers Richard Sapper and Marco Zanuso, or the lamp from Estudios DG signed by Eduardo Duque, the Museum aims to transport us to a specific space and place. By displaying these items in a setting reminiscent of a Spanish urban home from the mid-60s, this exhibition explores the coexistence of national and international models of industrial design, as well as their influence on adaptations that later became widespread for their global consumption when Spain was opening to the world in the 60s.

Textile. Over 60 years ago, in Stockholm, Nils Erik Eklund came up with the idea of turning scraps of fabrics into cloth carpets. This was the start of Bolon. Ahead of his time, Nils Erik Eklund saw opportunities that others hadn’t even noticed. Faithful to this philosophy, the Bolon by Missoni Home brand will put the results of the new partnership between Bolon and Missoni on display at the exclusive greenhouse called Invernadero The Sibarist. In this pop-up collection, Missoni’s distinguished and colourful fabrics become strong, striking floors.

Guided tours for adults Designs for the future. The first objects designed by the human being consist of a visit to the museum and a small colloquium. The tour will address the beginnings of the history of design, from the most remote times of mankind to the stage before the Romanization of Hispania. Each object has been selected based on its interesting design and a theme in relation to a historical discourse that complements it. Among other important creations of the human being, the first stone tools, the Lady of Elche and the Greek ceramic vessels will be analyzed from the interesting point of view of their peculiar design.

In the Cerralbo Museum we can admire first hand the characteristics that define the interior decoration of the late 19th century before the development of the design concept. Enrique de Aguilera, XVII Marquis of Cerralbo, devised not only the building, but also its aesthetic and functional spaces. The Stairs of Honor, the backbone of nineteenth-century mansions, is an authentic piece of crafts that responds to the needs of utility and representation characteristic of this type of housing. The Arab Room is a small room in which exoticism and orientalism of the end of the century are the ideal canvas for the exhibition of the Marquis' collections. In the Gala Dining room, the fashion of the Europe of the moment is combined with the recycling of luxurious materials. Finally, the Chaflán Hall constitutes a unique space within the palace-museum with an integral design of decoration and lighting with electric light.

Guided by Caroline Montero de Espinosa, museum technician, we will discover the richness and variety of decorative and environmental resources employees in these rooms.

MARCA, is a collection of objects for daily use, the result of collaboration between selected designers and manufacturing companies located in the province of Turin. The project is promoted and supported by the Turin Chamber of Commerce, in collaboration with the Piemonte Agency, and is conceived and curated by Barbara Brondi and Marco Rainò.

MARCA represents the excellence of the territory of Turin, activating a fruitful cooperation between institutions, designers and companies with the aim of improving the creative abilities of designers and the consolidated technical knowledge of manufacturers.

The project is based on the assumption that objects can tell a story, express a thought and can reveal the creativity and "know-how" of the designer and manufacturer, qualities that certainly do not lack the business background of Turin and deserve to be known in Italy and abroad.

The objects included in the MARCA catalog are designed to be easily assembled by the end user. The production of all components is managed by the company, while the object in its final configuration is created by the user that combines the parts included in a kit with the help of useful graphic instructions to guide the end user through the phases of assembly. The assembly is always characterized by a great possibility of interpretation by the user, ensuring a wide range of combinations between the various parts that make up each object and a certain "uniqueness" of the final product.

The exhibition includes plans, scale models, workshop trials and the first prototype produced in this creation process.

According to research conducted by IKEA, by 2050, 70% of the world population will live in cities. 1,600 million people won’t have access to an affordable and safe home; we will have to find solutions to feed the entire population; and digital connection won’t help avoid the sense of loneliness. It is obvious that we have to rethink the building, management and life cycle of our buildings, and IKEA has a vision of how to face these challenges.

Its vision is to create a better day-to-day life at home for the majority of people. With this in mind, it intends to get ahead of events and look into what homes and houses will be like in 2030. A home understood as more than the structure of a house, as it includes the neighbourhood, neighbours, services... A near future that IKEA has materialised, alongside Ikano Bostad and the SPACE10 research lab, in an exhibition. This exhibition will show the new ways of life that include co-living, a solution suggested by IKEA to prevent loneliness and provide access to a house based on shared spaces that connect us to our neighbours.
