@ Baltic Manufactory; Manufaktuuri Tänav 5, Tallinn
The BRUNO product design award is awarded every two years to an exceptional product or product series, manufactured either at the designer's own initiative, as a collaboration, or as a commission by a manufacturer/entrepreneur. Production-ready prototypes created during the past two years, or industrial products or product series already in production qualify to enter.

On the exhibition you can see the qualified work, which the international jury (Päivi Tahkokallio (Finland), Anthony Luciano (USA), Merike Rehepapp (Estonia), Sergio Davila (Mexico) ja Spyros Bogylatos (Greece)) rated highly enough. Three categories - lifestyle, human environment and engineering - can be seen on the exhibition.


In order to value design and the profession of designer, the Estonian Association of Designers decided in 2006 to start giving out the Estonian Design Award. The first Design Award was given out in the eighties by Tallinn Art Institute Department of Design at the initiative of Bruno Tomberg, after whom the Estonian Design Award has been named. Among the award-winners are experienced professionals like Matti Õunapuu, Heikki Zoova etc. 


Starting from 2012, Estonian Design Awards, including BRUNO, are jointly presented in cooperation with Estonian Design Centre, ADC*Estonia, Estonian Service Industry Association and Estonian Academy of Arts.  Estonian Design Centre organises the Design Awards and gala takes place during the Tallinn Design Festival.

The Estonian Association of Designers wishes to present innovative, high-standard new products to the public that would prompt Estonians to consume domestic design and motivate entrepreneurs to involve professional designers in product development. The recognition would encourage designers to create new interesting products and motivate them to learn about tendencies in design on the international level. For the design-knowledgeable entrepreneur participating in the competition with a designer and the public sector, product development from the aspect of design and design management would bring recognition and would be a good role model for others. In the long-term perspective, the Design Award is a springboard for new products and brands to the international arena.

Italian Travelling Exhibition “3CODESIGN. 3R: Reduce Recycle Reuse”
19.09—25.09.2022
Mon 15—21
Tue-Sat 12—20
Sun 12—18

@ Baltic Manufactory; Manufaktuuri Tänav 5, Tallinn

The Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation presents the exhibition "3CODESIGN. 3R: Reduce Recycle Reuse". Spread over a space of 150 square meters, “3CODESIGN” offers a selection of recycled objects, products and furnishings, but also sustainable materials and technologies, all designed by Italian designers and/or Italian industries and companies in the sector.


The exhibition, with its sustainable installation plan designed by Bruno Morello, aims to offer an inevitably concise yet sufficiently paradigmatic overview on how Italian design is working towards the direction of the latest environmental sustainability needs, a real inversion of trend compared to the systems of production and design strategies employed during the 20th century. It is an overall and radical rethinking of a production model that aimed at the over-exploitation of resources; a re-evaluation of all the stages of design and production – a starting point for thinking of objects and products that become repairable, reusable, shareable, and recyclable. Instead of ending up in landfill, the value of an object must remain in circulation, by regenerating itself continuously.

Curated by Silvana Annicchiarico, the exhibition will be circulating abroad through the diplomatic-consular network and Italian Cultural Institutes for the next three years, with the aim of giving space and visibility to the new frontiers of Italian design and to actualize the reputation it enjoys around the world, telling the story of the journey of the designers toward environmental sustainability. “3CODESIGN” has previously been to Prague, Doha, Shenzhen, Toronto, Washington, Tunis and Pristina.

On display: Massimiliano Adami, Luca Alessandrini, Alessi, Giuseppe Arezzi, Antonio Aricò, Artemide, Alessandra Baldereschi, Mariapia Bellis, Guglielmo Brambilla, Anna Castelli Ferrieri, Carraro Chabarik mosaico contemporaneo, Valentina Carretta, Acqua Chiarella, Citco, Lorenzo Damiani, Da a Italia, Rodolfo Dordoni, Pablo Dorigo, ECAL, Errepi technology e Pepo con Allard, Assenza, Ferretti, Paniccià e Marin, Favini, Salvatore Ferragamo, Fondazione Cologni dei Mestieri d’Arte, Fonderia Artistica Versiliese, Doriana e Massimiliano Fuksas, Piero Gatti Cesare Paolini e Franco Teodoro, Gervasoni, Luca Gnizio, Grado Zero Group, Kanesis Mkr Lab Bilcotech, Keep Life, Konstantin Grcic, Martí Guixé, Giulio Iacchetti, It’s Great Design, JoeVelluto Studio, jpeglab, Kartell, Marta Laudani, Piero Lissoni, Roberto Lucchinetti, Magis, Manerba, Enzo Mari, Antonio Marras, Luciano Marson, Issey Miyake, Mosaicomicro, Myop, Paola Navone, Nerosicilia Group, NestArt s.r.l., Lorenzo Palmeri, Pieces of Venice, Matteo Ragni, Sapiens Design, Seletti, Silk hi-tech classical instruments, Slamp, Sovrappensiero Design Studio, Philippe Starck, Martina Taranto, Teraplast, Tipstudio, Toiletpaper, Toiletpaper loves Seletti, Paolo Ulian, Zanotta, Zava Illuminazione, Marco Zito.

Anthony Luciano presents: “50 Bags to live for”
19.09—25.09.2022
Mon 15—18
Tue—Sun 12—18

Exhibition official opening:
Mon 19.09 at 15:00

@ Estonian Design House+; Suur-Karja 14, Tallinn

Artisan designer Anthony Luciano is a first generation New Yorker, a second generation Italian, and the last of six children, who carries with him evolution of artistry and old world traditions. Having learned how to do handwork – embroidery, crochet, knitting and stitching – from his grandmother, Anthony started collecting anything vintage before he even started his business.


When he started making accessories, he was obsessed with vintage clasps and would always be on the lookout for local vintage gems, both when travelling abroad (Paris, Rome, London, Cairo etc) and in the States (different state sales, flea markets in NYC and other places). This brought him to the world of handbags: Anthony is fascinated about the history and the story of these women who would carry these beautiful bags. Who were those women and what was their lifestyle? What kind of events were they attending?


His collection of globally sourced vintage handbag clasps provided the spark and inspiration to launch his eponymous collection in 2000, with the intent to produce a luxurious line of day and evening bags of the highest quality and craftsmanship. Almost immediately, his bags filled the racks at some of the finest retailers in America, including Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus and Stanley Korshak.


Anthony likes to remake the bags using his imagination, his knowledge and research on the history of accessories throughout different centuries. He remakes the bag with contemporary twists and attaches it to the vintage frame.

Exhibition "There is a forest in my backyard but my house is built from trees grown far away"
19.09—25.09.2022

@ Põhjala Factory; Marati 5, Tallinn

As a natural building material, wood contains a unique richness which is impacted by many factors including climate and topography. Whether the building site is next to a forest or not, timber used in construction has been subjected to an industrial decision-making process that dictates its final physical properties. In this act of translation, where wood is often treated similarly to other inanimate materials, a tree’s uniqueness is sacrificed for transportability, structural consistency and usability. 


Focusing on the characteristics of wood, the exhibition explores the act of transformation across the life cycle of the material; from extraction to transportation, standardisation to encapsulation and eventual disassembly for potential reuse. In seeking out the unique traits of timber, we aim to question how industry and construction can learn from and be shaped by the inherent qualities of the material.

“There is a forest in my backyard but my house is built from trees grown far away” has been awarded with the Architectural Association of Ireland (AAI) Award. Curators: Aet Ader, Helmi Marie Langsepp and Mari Möldre (b210 Architects) and St John Walsh (Alder Architects). Participating offices: Creatomus Solutions, Hannigan Cooke Architects, Joseph Mackey Architects, OGU Architects, Paco Ulman & Kaja Pae, Peeter Pere Architects, Studio Kuidas, Robert Bourke Architects, Ruumiringlus, Wrkshop Architects.

Exhibition "Material Change. Design and new technologies" at Adamson-Eric Museum
The exhibition looks at how Estonian contemporary artists and designers employ new materials and technologies. On display are, among other pieces, smart textile by Kärt Ojavee and Johanna Ulfsak, carbon-negative mushroom furniture by Siim Karro and 3D-printed jewellery by Darja Popolitova.

We hope exhibition "Material Change. Design and New Technologies" inspires visitors to think about how we interact with materials, and about the broader social and environmental impacts of materials. Looking for more efficient uses of natural resources, many designers apply the circular model instead of the take-make-consume-dispose mindset.

TAB 2022 Curatorial Exhibition "Edible"
20.09—25.09.2022
Tue-Sun at 11—18

@ Estonian Museum of Architecture; Ahtri 2, Tallinn
6th Tallinn Architecture Biennale (TAB) 2022 is titled “Edible; Or, The Architecture of Metabolism”, which approaches the word “food” both literally and metaphorically. On the one hand, “Edible" explores architectural strategies of local production and self-sufficiency, and on the other, operations that use by-products of urban life, replacing the traditional linear systems of “make, use and dispose” with circular systems that aim to limit material and resource loss.

Main curators Lydia Kallipoliti (USA/ Greece) ja Areti Markopoulou (Spain/ Greece) wish the exhibition would transfer the notion of metabolism – growth, decay, digestion, and nutrient release – from the natural world to the domain of cities and buildings. The main objective is to reimagine planetary food systems along with architecture’s capacity to perform metabolic processes.

Participants in the Curatorial Exhibition will be gathered in five thematic groups: Metabolic HomeFrom Brick to SoilFood and Geopolitics, the Archaeology of Architecture and Food Systems and the Future Food Deal. The exhibition “Edible"  at Estonian Museum of Architecture is open until November 20.

TAB 2022 is chosen as one of the TOP architecture events of 2022 by Dezeen and Archdaily .

19.09—25.09.2022

Tue—Sun 12—18

Exhibition official opening:
Mon 19.09 at 15:00

@ Estonian Design House+; Suur-Karja 14, Tallinn

Artisan designer Anthony Luciano is a first generation New Yorker, a second generation Italian, and the last of six children, who carries with him evolution of artistry and old world traditions. Having learned how to do handwork – embroidery, crochet, knitting and stitching – from his grandmother, Anthony started collecting anything vintage before he even started his business.


When he started making accessories, he was obsessed with vintage clasps and would always be on the lookout for local vintage gems, both when travelling abroad (Paris, Rome, London, Cairo etc) and in the States (different state sales, flea markets in NYC and other places). This brought him to the world of handbags: Anthony is fascinated about the history and the story of these women who would carry these beautiful bags. Who were those women and what was their lifestyle? What kind of events were they attending?


His collection of globally sourced vintage handbag clasps provided the spark and inspiration to launch his eponymous collection in 2000, with the intent to produce a luxurious line of day and evening bags of the highest quality and craftsmanship. Almost immediately, his bags filled the racks at some of the finest retailers in America, including Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus and Stanley Korshak.


Anthony likes to remake the bags using his imagination, his knowledge and research on the history of accessories throughout different centuries. He remakes the bag with contemporary twists and attaches it to the vintage frame.

Exhibition "Material Change. Design and new technologies" at Adamson-Eric Museum
The exhibition looks at how Estonian contemporary artists and designers employ new materials and technologies. On display are, among other pieces, smart textile by Kärt Ojavee and Johanna Ulfsak, carbon-negative mushroom furniture by Siim Karro and 3D-printed jewellery by Darja Popolitova.

We hope exhibition "Material Change. Design and New Technologies" inspires visitors to think about how we interact with materials, and about the broader social and environmental impacts of materials. Looking for more efficient uses of natural resources, many designers apply the circular model instead of the take-make-consume-dispose mindset.

TAB 2022 Curatorial Exhibition "Edible"
20.09—25.09.2022
Tue-Sun at 11—18

@ Estonian Museum of Architecture; Ahtri 2, Tallinn
6th Tallinn Architecture Biennale (TAB) 2022 is titled “Edible; Or, The Architecture of Metabolism”, which approaches the word “food” both literally and metaphorically. On the one hand, “Edible" explores architectural strategies of local production and self-sufficiency, and on the other, operations that use by-products of urban life, replacing the traditional linear systems of “make, use and dispose” with circular systems that aim to limit material and resource loss.

Main curators Lydia Kallipoliti (USA/ Greece) ja Areti Markopoulou (Spain/ Greece) wish the exhibition would transfer the notion of metabolism – growth, decay, digestion, and nutrient release – from the natural world to the domain of cities and buildings. The main objective is to reimagine planetary food systems along with architecture’s capacity to perform metabolic processes.

Participants in the Curatorial Exhibition will be gathered in five thematic groups: Metabolic HomeFrom Brick to SoilFood and Geopolitics, the Archaeology of Architecture and Food Systems and the Future Food Deal. The exhibition “Edible"  at Estonian Museum of Architecture is open until November 20.

TAB 2022 is chosen as one of the TOP architecture events of 2022 by Dezeen and Archdaily .

Exhibition "There is a forest in my backyard but my house is built from trees grown far away"
19.09—25.09.2022

@ Põhjala Factory; Marati 5, Tallinn

As a natural building material, wood contains a unique richness which is impacted by many factors including climate and topography. Whether the building site is next to a forest or not, timber used in construction has been subjected to an industrial decision-making process that dictates its final physical properties. In this act of translation, where wood is often treated similarly to other inanimate materials, a tree’s uniqueness is sacrificed for transportability, structural consistency and usability. 


Focusing on the characteristics of wood, the exhibition explores the act of transformation across the life cycle of the material; from extraction to transportation, standardisation to encapsulation and eventual disassembly for potential reuse. In seeking out the unique traits of timber, we aim to question how industry and construction can learn from and be shaped by the inherent qualities of the material.

“There is a forest in my backyard but my house is built from trees grown far away” has been awarded with the Architectural Association of Ireland (AAI) Award. Curators: Aet Ader, Helmi Marie Langsepp and Mari Möldre (b210 Architects) and St John Walsh (Alder Architects). Participating offices: Creatomus Solutions, Hannigan Cooke Architects, Joseph Mackey Architects, OGU Architects, Paco Ulman & Kaja Pae, Peeter Pere Architects, Studio Kuidas, Robert Bourke Architects, Ruumiringlus, Wrkshop Architects.

Exhibition of product design award BRUNO
19.09—25.09.2022
Mon 15—21
Tue-Sat 12—20
Sun 12—18

@ Baltic Manufactory; Manufaktuuri Tänav 5, Tallinn
The BRUNO product design award is awarded every two years to an exceptional product or product series, manufactured either at the designer's own initiative, as a collaboration, or as a commission by a manufacturer/entrepreneur. Production-ready prototypes created during the past two years, or industrial products or product series already in production qualify to enter.

On the exhibition you can see the qualified work, which the international jury (Päivi Tahkokallio (Finland), Anthony Luciano (USA), Merike Rehepapp (Estonia), Sergio Davila (Mexico) ja Spyros Bogylatos (Greece)) rated highly enough. Three categories - lifestyle, human environment and engineering - can be seen on the exhibition.


In order to value design and the profession of designer, the Estonian Association of Designers decided in 2006 to start giving out the Estonian Design Award. The first Design Award was given out in the eighties by Tallinn Art Institute Department of Design at the initiative of Bruno Tomberg, after whom the Estonian Design Award has been named. Among the award-winners are experienced professionals like Matti Õunapuu, Heikki Zoova etc. 


Starting from 2012, Estonian Design Awards, including BRUNO, are jointly presented in cooperation with Estonian Design Centre, ADC*Estonia, Estonian Service Industry Association and Estonian Academy of Arts.  Estonian Design Centre organises the Design Awards and gala takes place during the Tallinn Design Festival.

The Estonian Association of Designers wishes to present innovative, high-standard new products to the public that would prompt Estonians to consume domestic design and motivate entrepreneurs to involve professional designers in product development. The recognition would encourage designers to create new interesting products and motivate them to learn about tendencies in design on the international level. For the design-knowledgeable entrepreneur participating in the competition with a designer and the public sector, product development from the aspect of design and design management would bring recognition and would be a good role model for others. In the long-term perspective, the Design Award is a springboard for new products and brands to the international arena.

Italian Travelling Exhibition “3CODESIGN. 3R: Reduce Recycle Reuse”
19.09—25.09.2022
Mon 15—21
Tue-Sat 12—20
Sun 12—18

@ Baltic Manufactory; Manufaktuuri Tänav 5, Tallinn

The Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation presents the exhibition "3CODESIGN. 3R: Reduce Recycle Reuse". Spread over a space of 150 square meters, “3CODESIGN” offers a selection of recycled objects, products and furnishings, but also sustainable materials and technologies, all designed by Italian designers and/or Italian industries and companies in the sector.


The exhibition, with its sustainable installation plan designed by Bruno Morello, aims to offer an inevitably concise yet sufficiently paradigmatic overview on how Italian design is working towards the direction of the latest environmental sustainability needs, a real inversion of trend compared to the systems of production and design strategies employed during the 20th century. It is an overall and radical rethinking of a production model that aimed at the over-exploitation of resources; a re-evaluation of all the stages of design and production – a starting point for thinking of objects and products that become repairable, reusable, shareable, and recyclable. Instead of ending up in landfill, the value of an object must remain in circulation, by regenerating itself continuously.

Curated by Silvana Annicchiarico, the exhibition will be circulating abroad through the diplomatic-consular network and Italian Cultural Institutes for the next three years, with the aim of giving space and visibility to the new frontiers of Italian design and to actualize the reputation it enjoys around the world, telling the story of the journey of the designers toward environmental sustainability. “3CODESIGN” has previously been to Prague, Doha, Shenzhen, Toronto, Washington, Tunis and Pristina.

On display: Massimiliano Adami, Luca Alessandrini, Alessi, Giuseppe Arezzi, Antonio Aricò, Artemide, Alessandra Baldereschi, Mariapia Bellis, Guglielmo Brambilla, Anna Castelli Ferrieri, Carraro Chabarik mosaico contemporaneo, Valentina Carretta, Acqua Chiarella, Citco, Lorenzo Damiani, Da a Italia, Rodolfo Dordoni, Pablo Dorigo, ECAL, Errepi technology e Pepo con Allard, Assenza, Ferretti, Paniccià e Marin, Favini, Salvatore Ferragamo, Fondazione Cologni dei Mestieri d’Arte, Fonderia Artistica Versiliese, Doriana e Massimiliano Fuksas, Piero Gatti Cesare Paolini e Franco Teodoro, Gervasoni, Luca Gnizio, Grado Zero Group, Kanesis Mkr Lab Bilcotech, Keep Life, Konstantin Grcic, Martí Guixé, Giulio Iacchetti, It’s Great Design, JoeVelluto Studio, jpeglab, Kartell, Marta Laudani, Piero Lissoni, Roberto Lucchinetti, Magis, Manerba, Enzo Mari, Antonio Marras, Luciano Marson, Issey Miyake, Mosaicomicro, Myop, Paola Navone, Nerosicilia Group, NestArt s.r.l., Lorenzo Palmeri, Pieces of Venice, Matteo Ragni, Sapiens Design, Seletti, Silk hi-tech classical instruments, Slamp, Sovrappensiero Design Studio, Philippe Starck, Martina Taranto, Teraplast, Tipstudio, Toiletpaper, Toiletpaper loves Seletti, Paolo Ulian, Zanotta, Zava Illuminazione, Marco Zito.

@ Baltic Manufactory; Manufaktuuri Tänav 5, Tallinn

2022 marks the centenary of Juri Lotman, the renowned semiotician and literary and cultural scholar, which will be celebrated in Estonia and all over the world. Together with his colleagues, he laid the foundation to a new scientific discipline: the semiotics of culture.

His ideas about the semiosphere, the translatability of culture, semiotic models, and the dynamism of culture have influenced the development of the humanities. Lotman’s ideas have also been applied in art and media studies, educational and social sciences, and digital and environmental humanities.

---------
Juri Lotman on unpredictability

Unpredictability is connected to explosion both directly and indirectly. “In explosive circumstances the calculation of probabilities does not work, there is only chance, and the result is unpredictable,” Lotman explains. In his writings, unpredictability is primarily associated with culture.

Lotman explains that the future must be respected. And it is precisely the unpredictability of the future that must be respected, for which he emphasizes the importance of art: “Art is the teacher who has been provided for us for our entire lives, and which is precisely capable of teaching us how to cope with unpredictability.” He elaborates: “Art is free, like all thinking and creation. What does “free” mean? Where there is choice, there is freedom. And this choice must be unpredictable for us to be able to speak of freedom.”

These thoughts are from the 1990 recordings of the lecture series „Conversations on Russian Cultural History“.

Artisan designer Anthony Luciano is a first generation New Yorker, a second generation Italian, and the last of six children, who carries with him evolution of artistry and old world traditions. Having learned how to do handwork – embroidery, crochet, knitting and stitching – from his grandmother, Anthony started collecting anything vintage before he even started his business.


When he started making accessories, he was obsessed with vintage clasps and would always be on the lookout for local vintage gems, both when travelling abroad (Paris, Rome, London, Cairo etc) and in the States (different state sales, flea markets in NYC and other places). This brought him to the world of handbags: Anthony is fascinated about the history and the story of these women who would carry these beautiful bags. Who were those women and what was their lifestyle? What kind of events were they attending?


His collection of globally sourced vintage handbag clasps provided the spark and inspiration to launch his eponymous collection in 2000, with the intent to produce a luxurious line of day and evening bags of the highest quality and craftsmanship. Almost immediately, his bags filled the racks at some of the finest retailers in America, including Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus and Stanley Korshak.


Anthony likes to remake the bags using his imagination, his knowledge and research on the history of accessories throughout different centuries. He remakes the bag with contemporary twists and attaches it to the vintage frame.

6th Tallinn Architecture Biennale (TAB) 2022 is titled “Edible; Or, The Architecture of Metabolism”, which approaches the word “food” both literally and metaphorically. On the one hand, “Edible" explores architectural strategies of local production and self-sufficiency, and on the other, operations that use by-products of urban life, replacing the traditional linear systems of “make, use and dispose” with circular systems that aim to limit material and resource loss.

Main curators Lydia Kallipoliti (USA/ Greece) ja Areti Markopoulou (Spain/ Greece) wish the exhibition would transfer the notion of metabolism – growth, decay, digestion, and nutrient release – from the natural world to the domain of cities and buildings. The main objective is to reimagine planetary food systems along with architecture’s capacity to perform metabolic processes.

Exhibition "There is a forest in my backyard but my house is built from trees grown far away"
19.09—25.09.2022

@ Põhjala Factory; Marati 5, Tallinn

As a natural building material, wood contains a unique richness which is impacted by many factors including climate and topography. Whether the building site is next to a forest or not, timber used in construction has been subjected to an industrial decision-making process that dictates its final physical properties. In this act of translation, where wood is often treated similarly to other inanimate materials, a tree’s uniqueness is sacrificed for transportability, structural consistency and usability. 


Focusing on the characteristics of wood, the exhibition explores the act of transformation across the life cycle of the material; from extraction to transportation, standardisation to encapsulation and eventual disassembly for potential reuse. In seeking out the unique traits of timber, we aim to question how industry and construction can learn from and be shaped by the inherent qualities of the material.

“There is a forest in my backyard but my house is built from trees grown far away” has been awarded with the Architectural Association of Ireland (AAI) Award. Curators: Aet Ader, Helmi Marie Langsepp and Mari Möldre (b210 Architects) and St John Walsh (Alder Architects). Participating offices: Creatomus Solutions, Hannigan Cooke Architects, Joseph Mackey Architects, OGU Architects, Paco Ulman & Kaja Pae, Peeter Pere Architects, Studio Kuidas, Robert Bourke Architects, Ruumiringlus, Wrkshop Architects.

Exhibition of product design award BRUNO
19.09—25.09.2022
Mon 15—21
Tue-Sat 12—20
Sun 12—18

@ Baltic Manufactory; Manufaktuuri Tänav 5, Tallinn
The BRUNO product design award is awarded every two years to an exceptional product or product series, manufactured either at the designer's own initiative, as a collaboration, or as a commission by a manufacturer/entrepreneur. Production-ready prototypes created during the past two years, or industrial products or product series already in production qualify to enter.

On the exhibition you can see the qualified work, which the international jury (Päivi Tahkokallio (Finland), Anthony Luciano (USA), Merike Rehepapp (Estonia), Sergio Davila (Mexico) ja Spyros Bogylatos (Greece)) rated highly enough. Three categories - lifestyle, human environment and engineering - can be seen on the exhibition.


In order to value design and the profession of designer, the Estonian Association of Designers decided in 2006 to start giving out the Estonian Design Award. The first Design Award was given out in the eighties by Tallinn Art Institute Department of Design at the initiative of Bruno Tomberg, after whom the Estonian Design Award has been named. Among the award-winners are experienced professionals like Matti Õunapuu, Heikki Zoova etc. 


Starting from 2012, Estonian Design Awards, including BRUNO, are jointly presented in cooperation with Estonian Design Centre, ADC*Estonia, Estonian Service Industry Association and Estonian Academy of Arts.  Estonian Design Centre organises the Design Awards and gala takes place during the Tallinn Design Festival.

The Estonian Association of Designers wishes to present innovative, high-standard new products to the public that would prompt Estonians to consume domestic design and motivate entrepreneurs to involve professional designers in product development. The recognition would encourage designers to create new interesting products and motivate them to learn about tendencies in design on the international level. For the design-knowledgeable entrepreneur participating in the competition with a designer and the public sector, product development from the aspect of design and design management would bring recognition and would be a good role model for others. In the long-term perspective, the Design Award is a springboard for new products and brands to the international arena.

Italian Travelling Exhibition “3CODESIGN. 3R: Reduce Recycle Reuse”
19.09—25.09.2022
Mon 15—21
Tue-Sat 12—20
Sun 12—18

@ Baltic Manufactory; Manufaktuuri Tänav 5, Tallinn

The Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation presents the exhibition "3CODESIGN. 3R: Reduce Recycle Reuse". Spread over a space of 150 square meters, “3CODESIGN” offers a selection of recycled objects, products and furnishings, but also sustainable materials and technologies, all designed by Italian designers and/or Italian industries and companies in the sector.


The exhibition, with its sustainable installation plan designed by Bruno Morello, aims to offer an inevitably concise yet sufficiently paradigmatic overview on how Italian design is working towards the direction of the latest environmental sustainability needs, a real inversion of trend compared to the systems of production and design strategies employed during the 20th century. It is an overall and radical rethinking of a production model that aimed at the over-exploitation of resources; a re-evaluation of all the stages of design and production – a starting point for thinking of objects and products that become repairable, reusable, shareable, and recyclable. Instead of ending up in landfill, the value of an object must remain in circulation, by regenerating itself continuously.

Curated by Silvana Annicchiarico, the exhibition will be circulating abroad through the diplomatic-consular network and Italian Cultural Institutes for the next three years, with the aim of giving space and visibility to the new frontiers of Italian design and to actualize the reputation it enjoys around the world, telling the story of the journey of the designers toward environmental sustainability. “3CODESIGN” has previously been to Prague, Doha, Shenzhen, Toronto, Washington, Tunis and Pristina.

On display: Massimiliano Adami, Luca Alessandrini, Alessi, Giuseppe Arezzi, Antonio Aricò, Artemide, Alessandra Baldereschi, Mariapia Bellis, Guglielmo Brambilla, Anna Castelli Ferrieri, Carraro Chabarik mosaico contemporaneo, Valentina Carretta, Acqua Chiarella, Citco, Lorenzo Damiani, Da a Italia, Rodolfo Dordoni, Pablo Dorigo, ECAL, Errepi technology e Pepo con Allard, Assenza, Ferretti, Paniccià e Marin, Favini, Salvatore Ferragamo, Fondazione Cologni dei Mestieri d’Arte, Fonderia Artistica Versiliese, Doriana e Massimiliano Fuksas, Piero Gatti Cesare Paolini e Franco Teodoro, Gervasoni, Luca Gnizio, Grado Zero Group, Kanesis Mkr Lab Bilcotech, Keep Life, Konstantin Grcic, Martí Guixé, Giulio Iacchetti, It’s Great Design, JoeVelluto Studio, jpeglab, Kartell, Marta Laudani, Piero Lissoni, Roberto Lucchinetti, Magis, Manerba, Enzo Mari, Antonio Marras, Luciano Marson, Issey Miyake, Mosaicomicro, Myop, Paola Navone, Nerosicilia Group, NestArt s.r.l., Lorenzo Palmeri, Pieces of Venice, Matteo Ragni, Sapiens Design, Seletti, Silk hi-tech classical instruments, Slamp, Sovrappensiero Design Studio, Philippe Starck, Martina Taranto, Teraplast, Tipstudio, Toiletpaper, Toiletpaper loves Seletti, Paolo Ulian, Zanotta, Zava Illuminazione, Marco Zito.

2022 marks the centenary of Juri Lotman, the renowned semiotician and literary and cultural scholar, which will be celebrated in Estonia and all over the world. Together with his colleagues, he laid the foundation to a new scientific discipline: the semiotics of culture.

His ideas about the semiosphere, the translatability of culture, semiotic models, and the dynamism of culture have influenced the development of the humanities. Lotman’s ideas have also been applied in art and media studies, educational and social sciences, and digital and environmental humanities.

---------
Juri Lotman on unpredictability

Unpredictability is connected to explosion both directly and indirectly. “In explosive circumstances the calculation of probabilities does not work, there is only chance, and the result is unpredictable,” Lotman explains. In his writings, unpredictability is primarily associated with culture.

Lotman explains that the future must be respected. And it is precisely the unpredictability of the future that must be respected, for which he emphasizes the importance of art: “Art is the teacher who has been provided for us for our entire lives, and which is precisely capable of teaching us how to cope with unpredictability.” He elaborates: “Art is free, like all thinking and creation. What does “free” mean? Where there is choice, there is freedom. And this choice must be unpredictable for us to be able to speak of freedom.”

These thoughts are from the 1990 recordings of the lecture series „Conversations on Russian Cultural History“.

Anthony Luciano presents: “50 Bags to live for”
19.09—25.09.2022
Mon 15—18
Tue—Sun 12—18

Exhibition official opening:
Mon 19.09 at 15:00

@ Estonian Design House+; Suur-Karja 14, Tallinn

Artisan designer Anthony Luciano is a first generation New Yorker, a second generation Italian, and the last of six children, who carries with him evolution of artistry and old world traditions. Having learned how to do handwork – embroidery, crochet, knitting and stitching – from his grandmother, Anthony started collecting anything vintage before he even started his business.


When he started making accessories, he was obsessed with vintage clasps and would always be on the lookout for local vintage gems, both when travelling abroad (Paris, Rome, London, Cairo etc) and in the States (different state sales, flea markets in NYC and other places). This brought him to the world of handbags: Anthony is fascinated about the history and the story of these women who would carry these beautiful bags. Who were those women and what was their lifestyle? What kind of events were they attending?


His collection of globally sourced vintage handbag clasps provided the spark and inspiration to launch his eponymous collection in 2000, with the intent to produce a luxurious line of day and evening bags of the highest quality and craftsmanship. Almost immediately, his bags filled the racks at some of the finest retailers in America, including Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus and Stanley Korshak.


Anthony likes to remake the bags using his imagination, his knowledge and research on the history of accessories throughout different centuries. He remakes the bag with contemporary twists and attaches it to the vintage frame.

Exhibition "Material Change. Design and new technologies" at Adamson-Eric Museum
The exhibition looks at how Estonian contemporary artists and designers employ new materials and technologies. On display are, among other pieces, smart textile by Kärt Ojavee and Johanna Ulfsak, carbon-negative mushroom furniture by Siim Karro and 3D-printed jewellery by Darja Popolitova.

We hope exhibition "Material Change. Design and New Technologies" inspires visitors to think about how we interact with materials, and about the broader social and environmental impacts of materials. Looking for more efficient uses of natural resources, many designers apply the circular model instead of the take-make-consume-dispose mindset.

TAB 2022 Curatorial Exhibition "Edible"
20.09—25.09.2022
Tue-Sun at 11—18

@ Estonian Museum of Architecture; Ahtri 2, Tallinn
6th Tallinn Architecture Biennale (TAB) 2022 is titled “Edible; Or, The Architecture of Metabolism”, which approaches the word “food” both literally and metaphorically. On the one hand, “Edible" explores architectural strategies of local production and self-sufficiency, and on the other, operations that use by-products of urban life, replacing the traditional linear systems of “make, use and dispose” with circular systems that aim to limit material and resource loss.

Main curators Lydia Kallipoliti (USA/ Greece) ja Areti Markopoulou (Spain/ Greece) wish the exhibition would transfer the notion of metabolism – growth, decay, digestion, and nutrient release – from the natural world to the domain of cities and buildings. The main objective is to reimagine planetary food systems along with architecture’s capacity to perform metabolic processes.

Participants in the Curatorial Exhibition will be gathered in five thematic groups: Metabolic HomeFrom Brick to SoilFood and Geopolitics, the Archaeology of Architecture and Food Systems and the Future Food Deal. The exhibition “Edible"  at Estonian Museum of Architecture is open until November 20.

TAB 2022 is chosen as one of the TOP architecture events of 2022 by Dezeen and Archdaily .

Exhibition "There is a forest in my backyard but my house is built from trees grown far away"
19.09—25.09.2022

@ Põhjala Factory; Marati 5, Tallinn

As a natural building material, wood contains a unique richness which is impacted by many factors including climate and topography. Whether the building site is next to a forest or not, timber used in construction has been subjected to an industrial decision-making process that dictates its final physical properties. In this act of translation, where wood is often treated similarly to other inanimate materials, a tree’s uniqueness is sacrificed for transportability, structural consistency and usability. 


Focusing on the characteristics of wood, the exhibition explores the act of transformation across the life cycle of the material; from extraction to transportation, standardisation to encapsulation and eventual disassembly for potential reuse. In seeking out the unique traits of timber, we aim to question how industry and construction can learn from and be shaped by the inherent qualities of the material.

“There is a forest in my backyard but my house is built from trees grown far away” has been awarded with the Architectural Association of Ireland (AAI) Award.
