simon hasan will boil leather, completely transforming its texture and aesthetic properties; it will be a process of (genuine) experimentation simon hasan has not done before – more technical experiments as opposed to making finished objects on the spot.

design miami/ is curating an event outside its own territories in a unique partnership with fendi.
taking place during the salone del mobile in milan, ‘craft punk’ will expand on the design
performance programme that is a highlight of design miami/.

craft is an area of design production that designers often turn to in the early stages of their careers.
‘craft punk’ will transform the 750 square meter spazio fendi into an active environment for social
interaction, unruly intellectual inquiry and actionbased design processes by inviting emerging designers
to work within traditional, or hand-made, craft methods. the designers can use discarded materials
from the fendi production process, such as selleria leather, branded fabrics, plastic decorative elements,
and metal hardware. demonstrating the creation process live and onsite, they will reinvent the way
a process or material is typically employed.

the designers contributing to ‘craft punk’ include kwangho lee, massimiliano adami, nacho carbonell,
peter marigold, raw-edges, sarah becker, simon hasan, studio glithero, studio libertiny, and yuri
suzuki + household. a truly international mix of talents, they come from as far afield as japan, denmark,
italy, israel, slovakia, spain, the netherlands, south korea, germany and the UK.
