product design


Under the flag of design for sustainable development, Experimenta o Campo (Experience the Countryside) brings together several areas of making to create symbiotic design and handcraft projects. Through the identification of common ground and sources of mutual stimulus, sharing knowledge and resources enabled the designers to diversify their experience, fine-tuning tools and methods whilst bridging the gap between craftsmen and the processes and languages of design.
