Ireland will land at WantedDesign

Featuring over 20 designers, makers and studios involved in collaborations across disciplines, Liminal is the flagship show from Irish Design 2015 (ID2015), a year long initiative backed by the Irish government promoting and celebrating Irish design in Ireland and internationally. Moving through a series of design venues from Milan to New York at WantedDesign, to Dublin to Eindhoven, the exhibition demonstrates Irish design excellence across disciplines and considers the possibilities for the future. Presenting a pivotal chapter in Irish design Liminal explores, identifies and showcases Irish creativity, and how designers, makers and studios are moving across the disciplinary boundaries and limits of what design was, into what design can become. Taking the theme of liminality, which refers to spaces that lie between the known and the unknown, this exhibition explores the craft of collaboration and presents the exploratory journeys undertaken by designers. More
