Completing an already fully satisfying exhibition is the first edition of the YouNique Craftsmanship Award, a prize for the exhibitor who best interprets the philosophy of the event.
A peculiarity that makes YouNique a one-off event in the panorama of exhibitions dedicated to craftsmanship is the actual presence of true Master Craftsmen of exceptional quality who exhibit their own artifacts. It is a truly winning combination that offers the visitor a truly special and high quality experience.
Starting with next edition, YouNique Lugano will be taking place in March, the month of spring and of rebirth, grasping the energy and the desire for creativity that permeates the air at that the time of year.
During the two days in Lugano, skilled master craftsmen, artists and designers will have the opportunity to show visitors, families and professionals in the sector, not only splendid artfully made artifacts, a true hymn to creativity, craftsmanship and experience, but also some of the fascinating work phases that the public rarely has the opportunity to see.
YouNique for Tuscany
The “Special guest” of the 2022 edition of YouNique is Tuscany which, thanks to an important collaboration with Confartigianato Florence and Oma-Osservatorio dei Mestieri d’Arte, will be present with a representation of artisan excellence.
The exhibitors coming from Tuscany, will be recognizable thanks to the “YouNique for Tuscany” plaque.
Younique in Lugano takes you on a symbolic journey through geographical areas that have a great vocation for craftsmanship, where men and women have found ways to transform their passions into wonderful craftwork, standing out as outsiders in their own fields: whether that be in ceramics or glass, mosaic or inlay, bronze or marble, fabrics, self-produced design, tailoring, jewellery, shoes, watches, furnishings or musical instruments.
YouNique – Fine Craft Art & Design is an event conceived and curated by Andrea Peri, director, and Sonia Gaffuri, event manager, on behalf of Target Management SA.
Sono tazza di te!
The third edition of YouNique – Fine Craft Art & Design opens its doors to the exhibition SONO TAZZA DI TE! 100 smashing women designers, an exhibition conceived by the DcomeDesign association, curated by Anty Pansera – historian and critic of design and applied arts and Compasso d’Oro alla Carriera – and Patrizia Sacchi, communication designer, with a Swiss Edition to be held during the two days of the event.
There will be 20 creations by women artisans resident in Switzerland, which will be added to the exhibition of cups already displayed with great success in Milan during the last Design Week.
