This year the festival had an inaugural show theme of "Nordic Edition" and celebrated their material of the year; Wood. With all this to see in one building, the Handmade Festival is a must see stop on visit to Barcelona.
There were several stands with designs which celebrate high quality craftsmanship techniques. We were especially drawn to by many designers which are an example of Craft-Tech, where the use of computer controlled CNC laser has updated the technique of marquetry, by cutting the veneer pieces and opening up the possibilities. Craft vs Technology is a topic which we have been discussing recently on our twitter.
It was impossible not to imagine many of the textiles or ceramics in our own homes. We loved the beautiful arrangements of subscription flowers available from Bauhaus.
The Bauhaus Pavilion had a very interesting display, with a very wide variety of materials and processes on show.
