Intelligence Temple of Manufacturing

New York’s Temple of Manufacturing exposition showcases examples of artisanal craftsmanship from all over the world. The exhibition, put together by Aamu Song and Johan Olin of COMPANY, a design duo based in Helsinki, is the materialisation of their decade-long project: SECRETS. The initiative took them to remote sites across the globe in an effort to learn crafting processes unique to particular industries and places.

The showing includes examples of traditional craftsmanship from Finland, Russia, Japan and the U.S., each featuring a variety of products crafted locally in each of the sites. Examples range from fluorescent hand-blown glass from Finland to zigzag chairs designed with slots for marbles from Amish Pennsylvania.

The interior is colourful, with a soft blue and white general theme; walls not adorned with artisanal craftsmanship are lined with thin wooden rods topped with hollow bulbs made from wood, metal and glass. Much of the wall art features generic human figures doing factory work, giving off an underlying industrial aesthetic, although each country’s section does have an interesting cultural twist. Sheets of design drawings hang from cords that run across the ceiling.

The exhibition runs until August 5th. More information can be found here.
