Yesterday I did the take over of @Venturaprojects Instagram account: still for few hours you can see the stories that I did!
Design invades everything: private gardens, industrial warehouses, tire shop, mechanic, offices and art galleries. Enter without fear and don’t be ashamed to ask for information, designers will be happy to tell you about their projects! A seemingly simple object explained if it can turn into a very interesting discovery!
You can also grab a bite in several street food trucks.

Among the works of Material Futures students of the Central Saint Martin in London there is the performance of Lenka Vacková against fast fahion: Lenka is being tattooed with the logos of most famous brands. Instead of the standard ink she is using her own blood as pigment. The tattoos will gradually disappear, but the blood represent the dissent against the mistreatment of workers in the fast fashion factories.

Super supermarket: the playful exhibition mimics a real supermarket made of residual materials supplied by a variety of Danish companies. It points towards a new reality where recycling and sustainability become a natural part of corporate business models. Norwegian Craft & Design: Everything is connected.
