A provocative and entertaining seminar series covers a broad scope of issues facing the contemporary design field, and includes a large-scale collaborative drawing game based on the surrealist ‘exquisite corpse’ utilising Moleskine’s Japanese albums and pens. A departure from traditional trade exhibitions, the event aims to inform and entertain both professionals and the public alike.
Tramshed 2011 will include work, with many new launches, from 31 thoughtful enterprises including Massproductions, Søren Rose Studio, Bocci, Falcon Enamelware, VONSUNG, Aesop, Mitab, Autoban, Studioilse, Matthew Hilton, Orsjo, De Vorm, and Benjamin Hubert.
