about the exhibition

After their debut in Milan, envisions was invited by Organisation in Design to take part in WantedDesign during NYCxDesign and bring their cutting edge work to the overseas public. In this collective exhibition, envisions showed a key selection of their materials presented in the > products in process – part 1 < exhibition.

Presented as a collective that showcases everything but the end product, the collection of work from > products in process – part 1 < aims to offer new insights to different phases that would normally never be seen by the public’s eye. By revealing the steps of the extensive research process that precedes a design’s final outcome, the collection breathes life into initial concepts and pushes them towards reality.

Transcending the fear of copycats, the designers reveal more about their work – and themselves – to the public. By doing so, a climate for interaction and exchange is created. The setup is intended to trigger a dialogue between designers, clients and manufacturers, who are encouraged to approach each project as a collaborator. By crowdsourcing ideas, envisions allows for unexpected developments in the making process and ultimately gives rise to new-found joint ventures.
