WAH – We Are Here is a pop-up collective exhibition initiated by recent
graduates of the Design Academy Eindhoven. WAH was born with the intention of
moving from city to city telling stories of different designers and how they
research in their direct environment. This year, WAH starts its run during the
3th edition of the Schio
Design Festival hosted by Fabbrica
Saccardo, a cultural center located in Schio, a city in the North East of
WAH is a composed of 10 young designers from 7 different countries, residing in
7 different cities within Europe, who met through their education at the Master
Course of Social and Contextual Design. After graduating, the designers decided
to extend their collaboration by showcasing their work collectively, an idea
that was initiated by Giacomo Piovan, who brought together some projects from a
group of acquaintances. Accordingly, WAH gathered projects within graphics,
products, photography, jewelry and fashion and further connected them to local
designers. Through believing that Design is closer to what people might think,
WAH´s aim is therefore that design should be directly communicated to the
public in order to rise awareness on themes such self-production, storytelling
and social design.
"My sculptures are bodies, exposed to pressure and movements.
On one hand, it
is the mass in thin layers, running in a meander-like closed movement. On the
other hand it is the empty space, air and light forming volumes, described by
the contures of the mass. The construction is really made of the absent; the
emptiness, the holes of air. The obvious body just defines the volume."
"L’acqua è di tutti" (Water Belongs To Everybody) is an interactive installation that merge plastic art, music and reuse philosophy. It's a project by Manolo Benvenuti, Claudio Ballestracci e Giulio Accettulli, musiche originali di Marco Mantovani. Supported by Rimini (Italy) and Périgueux (France) municipalities, it develops the “water” guide theme as a social and relational good. The Bottle’s facing is made with 6.000 reclaimed plastic bottles, mostly mould by the school children and associations who attended specific workshops in Périgueux. The Bottle acts as a concert hall to four Sound Fountains, perfectly working artifacts that hide a musical core, though: they are strings indeed, impatient for playing their score. When you get close to the nozzles, they stop the water flows and start the musical ones. The performance is complete as long as you play all four of the Fountains, and it seems as if you’re calling a string quartet up from the water
Dutch artist Daan Roosegaarde is the mind behind these beautiful pieces. "INTIMACY
is a fashion project exploring the relation between intimacy and technology. Its high-tech garments entitled 'Intimacy
White' and 'Intimacy Black' are made out of opaque smart e-foils that

participants to utilize traditional upholstery techniques under the theme 'a

Beautiful combination of wood and textile in an accordion-like folded surface, these product by designer Elisa Strozyk in collaboration with artist Sebastian Neeb generate a new experience of the material wood.
A very creative Italian lady, Silvia Bisconti, is the mind behind Raptus and Roses, a fashion studio in Belluno, North Italy. Silvia carefully select vintage textile and vintage dresses around the world.
