Among the selections are design schools: Kunsthochschule will be on hand to reveal works from its product design course in a collection of objects called Kasselcollection, including lamps, clocks and glassware, and the Faydherbe interior and product design program of Thomas More University will show furniture-focused work from students and alums alike.

Other designer participants include Elisa Uberti, a Paris-based ceramicist known for her minimalist vases, lamps and sculptures that draw influence from nomadic tribes; the German Studio Philipp Beisheim, with experimental furniture; and Ebanisteria Meccanica, an artisanal carpentry workshop out of Italy.
