A.I. Artisanal Intelligence for the 14 Biennale Architecture showcased in Venice at the the BAUERs Hotel June 2014

Dear Shaded Viewers,

The beautiful and celebrated BAUERs Hotel in Venice has given their shop windows over to a selection of young designers by A.I. Artisanal Intelligence to confirm the value of the "planning" even in the small product. The items on display are coherent with the 14th Biennale Architecture which is now taking place in Venice. Architecture is an inspiration to the showcased designers who work on the relationship between the body and the space that surrounds it. 

Barbara Cuniberti di Cascami orchestrates her textile designs based on architecture, for jewelry there is Simona Cassai and Marta Saletti di Leda Otto. The accessory blends with the body as printed in 3D, anthropomorphic, as timeless as the jewelry by Nora Renaud di Adal, the gloves by Thomasine Barnekow and the hats by Elena Todros and Nafi de Luca di Altalen.

The Shootingbag by Alessandro Di Cola uses the  aluminum of the bags constructing sharp and curvy forms reproducing images of objects that reference the memory of other functions. After Rome and Milan A.I. Artisanal Intelligence consolidates  the vocation of a promoter and representative of  new contemporary craft culture in Venice.
