Is it possible to integrate an active installation into a finished trade fair stand? To illustrate a craft? Twice? With two years in between? Without repeating the same things?
The first stand brought the mood and images from the workshop, practically in full, to the trade fair. Visitors could imagine themselves in the workshop thanks to the objects on long shelves. You cannot just ‘talk’ about waterproof solutions; you must demonstrate them. You do this by, for example, filling a coated planter with water. The walls were covered with panels in various materials and colours.
Two years later, individual racks are used to invoke a sense of the workshop. Because a workshop evolves when people work in it, the trade fair stand evolves as well. A process is alive. A craft is dynamic. Even though the essence remains the same: a waterproof washbasin, hop plants – that highlight the green and biological character of the materials – and less prominent lighting create a better result.
