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.
