With jewelry, ceramics, furniture and objects made from paper, metal and textiles, the “Korea NOW! Korean Crafts & Design in Munich 2016” exhibition in the Bavarian National Museum celebrates the diversity of contemporary design in South Korea. The special quality and distinctive aesthetic of the exhibits stem from a unique craftsmanship fusing Korean traditions with innovative techniques. The integration of the passion of personal discovery with ancient roots of cultural commonality reveals the essence of contemporary “Korean aesthetic” ? simplicity and nature, sensuality and beauty.

As part of the Munich Creative Business Week 2016 from February 20-28, the Korea Crafts & Design Foundation ? in representation of the South Korean Ministry for Culture, Sports and Tourism ? is presenting the work of over 50 Korean designers and artisans. The presentation, which also visited the Triennale di Milano and the Mus?e des Arts D?coratifs in Paris, is accompanied by a video projection featuring a selection of the participating designers and artisans.
