Metal Workshop: Cranbrook for Alessi

SKPD designed and curated this simple traveling exhibit for the Italian manufacturer Alessi to showcase prototypes from a collaborative workshop with Cranbrook. The show highlights the hands-on process of shaping metal. Wooden shipping crates double as display cases and offer a deliberate material contrast to the polished surfaces of the store. SKPD oversaw all graphics, identity and fabrication for this traveling show. Our patterned bowls (to launch in September 2012) were featured prominently for their graphic impact. The Trellis Bowl by Scott Klinker is one of 4 new products by Cranbrook designers for Alessi.
