21st century

In the years around 2000 many artisans and designers created new forms of expression.

The norms and taboos of design were identified and discussed. There was a notable reaction against the modernist demand for functionality, rationality and simplicity.

Instead, artists attempted to inject into their work content or issues that went beyond use and aesthetics.

This method of working recalls the way artists analyze a phenomenon or a problem. The hierarchical boundaries that existed in the past between art, applied art and design have increasingly been dissolved.
