Dozen - Astro-logical (de)sign

icon icon

Astro-logical (de)sign. Dozen makes the invisible visible

Dozen brings the magical concreteness of Bruno Munari closer to the pataphysics of Alfred Jarry to build semiological games for those who want to get lost in symbols and find themselves in design. Saisie esthetique. The first Dozen Design collection presented at SuperDesign Show explores the Triangle and confuses the limits of art, crafts and design.
