The Preview is a by-invitation only event, for members of the Press, sponsors, supporters, contributors, featured designers, our organizing team as well as our special guests.
We hope to introduce this year's impressive line-up of a selection of Architectural designers, furniture designers, product designers, fashion designers, graphic artists, craftsman, artisans and makers. Neue Artisans serves as a platform for emerging young designers and makers to showcase, network and have a discourse on various issues. It is also a kind of a mini design trade-show, showcasing new products/works. This year's event is our fourth installation, and will have three main components:
The Featured Installation Design
The Design Showcase & Marketplace
The Design Discourse
Neue Artisans, based in Kuala Lumpur, is founded by BandLab: Bureau of Architecture and Design, together with a team of design enthusiasts and contributors. The support has been tremendous from everyone since the pilot showcase back in 2012. This year, we partner with The Studium, Shapeshifts, Alt+P, Adept Research of University Malaya and The Prototype Gallery, based in Wisma Central, Kuala Lumpur. Stretching over the weekend, we hope to attract more visitors, interested to view, network and purchase what is offered. We will also have local design and lifestyle stores who will be around at Neue Artisans 4.0, head-hunting for designers for their shop. We hope to create a memorable and most importantly, beneficial event for all involved with Neue Artisans.
Neue Artisans 4.0 will be on the 12 & 13th of November 2016, from 11am - 6pm, at The Prototype Gallery Exhibition Space, Level 4, Wisma Central, Jalan Ampang Kuala Lumpur.
Thematized "Technique", the event is in support of the local and regional design industry that is constantly flourishing with emerging designs. "Technique" seeks to explore improved/new methods in the design process and it's making/fabrication. Looking at experimental techniques, possibilities and innovations of craft and technology in a cross-section of design, art and architecture.
Thank you all for your support to this initiative.
In conjunction with the Featured Architectural Installation Design at Neue Artisans 4.0.
