SATELLITE EVENT: Inform by BLITZ
As with all events, BLITZ aims to bring something fresh and exciting to the table. Malta Design Week 2014 is no exception.
Our vision for BLITZ during MDW involves bringing together an international selection of makers that blur the lines between art and design, whilst also sharing a love for material quality. These creatives take convention for a walk; they throw it up in the air, break it and then, rebuild.
INFORM presents a range of products by designers who share intimate knowledge with their material, thus informing their practice. That said, all the artists we have sourced, share a common love: the desire to translate ‘old’ material into current, cutting edge forms that not only satisfy a utilitarian function, but also an aesthetic one.
