Design Alive nr 22 Summer. Roots.
During 21-23 October 2016 we participated in Designers’ Open 2016 in Leipzig (Germany). Designers’ Open is an international design exhibition that serves as a communication forum and marketplace for the industry. The event defines itself as a stage for trends and tendencies in product, fashion, and communication design, as a platform for newcomers, and as a meeting place for architecture.

“Salt and Pepper Set” designed and handcrafted by Przemysław Wańczyk will be shown in 18th International Silver Triennial organised by Gesellschaft für Goldschmiedekunst (Association for Goldsmiths’ Art) and the Deutsches Goldschmiedehaus Hanau (German Goldsmiths’ House).
Since 1965, the Society for Goldsmiths‘ Art has given emphasis to the contemporary silversmith scene through the Silver Triennial International. For this year‘s Silver Triennial, a jury of experts selected 67 artists from 17 countries who are presenting more than 70 works in the German Goldsmiths‘ House. Many of the works demonstrate quite new and exciting starting points for the handling of silver that go far beyond the classic raising and forging crafts. Feel invited to explore the exhibition opening on 6th November 2016 in Hanau, Germany.
This exhibition was part of the project shown in Streets Festival 2016, which took place in Remscheid, Germany in 1-3 July 2016.

Project and realization by Przemysław Wańczyk.
The pine sapling was casted in concrete from the forest in the Tatra Mountains in Zakopane, the beech sapling was from the forest in the outskirts of Remscheid. The third element was found in a forest in Remscheid. All the plants were growing during the exhibition and after the closing of the festival they were planted in the forest in Remscheid. The remaining pots casted from the plants as well as the found object are shown in Dune Concept Store in Honsberg.
