HIC EST FABER.
THE BEAUTY OF ARTISANAL CRAFTSMANSHIP, TRANSLATED INTO CONTEMPORARY QUALITY.

Milan Design Week's Fuorisalone from 17 to 22 April 2018 sees the debut of HIC EST FABER, a collective of contemporary artisans whose paths come together on a quest for excellence

The collective of artisans Hic est faber celebrates contemporary craftsmanship, and the creativity of talented hands that shape, stitch, sculpt, cut and fold; workshops that come to life once more and ancient arts that are rekindled. A network of contemporary artisans grounded in friendship, sharing motivation and inspiration: a cobbler   who crafts hand-made shoes (Bruno Shoemaker), two sisters who produce refined ceramic jewellery  (Jamais Sans Toi), a potter who combines Oriental aesthetics and tradition with contemporary experimentation (Studio Delta Pottery) and lastly a leather goods workshop making unisex bags and accessories that showcase sleek, minimal designs (Trakatan). One simple rule: taking pleasure in a job well done, to offer others unique products of authentic quality.      

pop-up shop in the space in Via Tortona 20, part of the official Tortona circuit, where design, fashion and culture mingle all year round.

An opportunity to discover that being an artisan today is much more complex than the romantic idea of the little workshop where “everything is done by hand, like in days gone by”. A place to meet craftspeople who apply traditional methods with a contemporary slant and value human skills.

temporary store which offers the pleasure of choosing quality, in terms of design, function and craftsmanship. And the chance to purchase a limited series of products, knowing where the materials come from, how they are treated and who has crafted them into the items on display.

This little temporary venue will play host to:

THE PHM | PIEMONTE HANDMADE PROJECT MOVES FROM A REFLECTION IN WHICH THE ROLE OF ARTISANS IS FUNDAMENTAL. GALLERIES AND DESIGNERS ARE NO LONGER CONSIDERED JUST AS SIMPLE SHOP CUSTOMERS. ON THE CONTRARY, IT IS IMPORTANT TO SET A DIFFERENT APPROACH TO BRING THE WORK UP TO DATE AND OPEN FUTURE PERSPECTIVES FOR ARTISANS THEMSELVES.
