TRESOR contemporary craft
Tresor Basel AG
TRESOR contemporary craft is a new international platform for high-end craft and contemporary applied arts which will open its doors on the Messe Basel exhibition grounds for the first time ever from 21 to 24 September 2017. With more than forty exhibitors from Switzerland, Europe and around the world, the fair will be an attractive meeting place where collectors and art enthusiasts can discover exciting trends and innovations in the field of contemporary craft. The one-of-a-kind trade fair concept does not rely on
conventional categories such as art, craft, design or architecture,
but instead focuses on the craftspeople and the stories behind the individual pieces.
Each of the curated spaces will be devoted to a current trend relating either to a material or technique. In the Analogue Digital Wonder Lab space, for example, jewellery made from a combination of gold and silversmithing, 3D printing and haptic technology will be on display. "Big and Bold" will shine a light on some of the most outstanding artists who work with clay. "Re-crafting Edison," meanwhile, will bring together innovative designers and creators who work with electric light. "Alchemy: from Base Metal to Gold" will present contemporary blacksmiths who work with silver and gold and also experiment with metals. Finally, "A Whiter Shade of Pale" will show a new generation of glass artists whose work is based on traditional techniques, but also boasts an added dash of contemporary elegance and poise.
