Craft + Manufacture is an exhibition of furniture, fittings, products and lighting developed over the years by Foster + Partners.

About

The exhibition includes models, prototypes, photographs and finished products that explain the team’s history and philosophy: starting with a draughting table from 1981 that spurred the beginnings of a dedicated industrial design team at Foster + Partners, through to bespoke fittings designed for the new Maggies’ Centre Manchester (opening April 2016).

Foster + Partners say: “The collaborative nature of the design team pioneered by Norman Foster has always included engineers, environmental experts, graphic designers, industrial designers and model-makers, as well as architects.  An integrated team delivers design solutions which treat the built environment in which we live and work in a holistic way; everything we see and touch is designed, and this was seen as a seamless activity.  This philosophy of integrated design is as important to the practice now as it was in its birth in the 1960s.”

Aram Store will be launching Dot and Eva, two of Foster + Partners’ latest light fixtures designed for Lumina, with a special display on the ground floor.
