Estonian Academy of Arts design MA students accessories exhibit KÄEATLAS (HAND ATLAS) at TALI design shop

Nagu kauni-roosa-flamingo-kimono fotolt paistab, oleme Taneliga nelja aastaga juba väikestviisi visuaalselt meenutamas vana abielupaari, tegelikult oleme abielus hoopis Kunstiakadeemiaga ja neljandat aastat veame aksessuaarikursust mille raames disaini magistrandid nullist pakendini ühe Eesti disaintoote välja mõtlevad ja valmis toodavad. Eelduseks müüdavus, tiražeerimine, skandinaavialik stiil, sihtgrupi analüüs, logo ja pakend ja lõpuboss näituse läbiviimine. Tänavune näitus-müük asub Tali disainipoes Kotzebue 33 majas ja eriti tuusaks teeb KÄEATLAS näituse see, et iga tööd esitlevad töö loonud disaineri käte keraamiline replika, täiesti päris koopia nende endi kätest, sellise tuusa ekspositsiooni eest oli omakorda vastutav andekas Sigrid Maria Luitsalu, kes kõik need käed valmis tegi. Samuti täiega tuusa postri ja graafilised visuaalid tegi meie väljamaa tudeng Hansel Tai. Ja veel tahaks südamest tänada Tali perenaist Triinu Tiiselit, selle eest, et ta meid juba teist aastat kodustab ja oma disainpoodi noorte disainerite loomet müüki võtab. Paljude nimekate kohalike disainerite jaoks on oma turunduslik teekond alanud just Talist ja see on suur asi omaette.

Näitus on väljas 9 juunini, ärge istuge pepu otsas, näitusele näitusele (ja kõike saab osta ka).
As you can see from this pink-flamingo-infused-kimono photograph, I and Tanel are slowly starting to look like an old married couple, 4 years of teaching design MA students accessories course makes us married indeed but to the Estonian Academy of Arts. Our students build a Scandinavian, sellable, target group oriented product & package from idea to the reality and present it with a badass exhibition each spring. This year the sale-exhibit takes place in Tali design shop at Kotzebue 33 Tallinn & it’s called HAND ATLAS. The name has its roots within the hands that are holding the works at the exhibition, each work held by a ceramic replica of its designer’s actual hands. The hands are made by one of our amazingly talented students Sigrid Maria Luitsalu. I’d also like to give an applause to our student Hansel Tai for creating such awesome graphic design materials. And last but not least, the lady of the Tali house, Triinu Tiisel has been truly inspirational and welcoming for the second year in a row already. Taking in new designers, making space to sell Estonian design and trusting new talent, it’s a big deal for all of us & many known designers has started off in Tali.

The show is opened until June 9, raise your butts and enjoy the designs (buy some too).
