Design 2016  Design 2016


An exhibition of objects made of paper and cardboard, that are innovative and experimental, exhibited in a showroom made especially for them, also built out of paper and cardboard. For the 2016 edition it was hosted in the Ex-Cavallerizza space, with 1500m of exhibition area, a place that historically represents Lucca and an example of the use of Italian art heritage.

The Design section is born from the need to capture our contemporary era; it completes and enriches the Biennale, highlighting the fact that the line between art and design is always getting finer, more transparent and undetectable. The key words for Cartasia Design are: ethics, aesthetics, manual skill, reusability, recycling, research, assembling, sustainability, contamination, craftmanship, emergency.

A place in which we search for emerging meanings and where the objects exhibited permit us to tell the stories of people and gestures that are hidden behind a creative process. Cartasia Design is the right pretext for a pleasant and constructive confrontation, it spreads awareness, creates intellectual enthusiasm, analyses and solves prejudices about the use of cardboard in our era.
