When does a limited edition product become art and no longer design? When is a piece of design a piece of art? Is ‘design-art’ a convenient terminology to describe this new orientation in design which highlights unique design objects with a whiff of functionalism? Is design-art a new trend? How this new trend about limited editions will evolve, and if this sector of limited design/art will be considered true design, will be matter to discuss at Interieur 2012. Take a look at some of the galleries exhibiting at the Biennale Interieur 2012 that will be defining new boundaries and will be rocking and waltzing between a blend of different disciplines and trends, and toy with the constraints ruling art and design itself.
