BMM x BCU for Selfridges

The BMM15 exhibit for Selfridges Birmingham appearing at the Milan Expo in Citta celebrates Midlands’ homegrown creatives inventing, exploring and experimenting with design boundaries and finding beauty in the everyday.

Birmingham City University and Birmingham Made Me have selected innovative designers and makers that seek out experimental techniques, bringing new results and design processes.

 

Modern Makers Revolution.

Collaborative design bringing together new collections as modern makers seek out experimental
technology and design exploration. Having a common taste for non-standard conceptual projects these innovative craftsmen are encompassing the growing trend for everyday items over art. The results are designs with purpose and an unpredictable process to create randomly beautiful objects.
