“It is a great pleasure to design an exhibition within an exhibition and thus create a temporary symbiosis“

Apart from unusual creations manufactured of wood and ceramics, the visitor encounters objects made of glas bre and organic materials.

Introducing amorphous forms, decomposing geometric structures and raw and simple shapes, the show focuses on current innovative pieces of the design industry.

Alexa Holzer on the creative concept of seLeCTeD:

“Design showcases change and the evolution of societies. Design is usability translated into form, shaping the stylistics of its time.

An object turns unique through the mindful combination of material, colour, form and function.”
