Edit Napoli 2021 Highlights Selected By Yellowtrace

 

EDIT Napoli returned for its third iteration in late October this year. With one eye on global and another on the local design scene, the three day fair scouted designers, manufacturers, artisans and producers with practices rooted in making. Conceived and curated by Domitilla Dardi and Emilia Petruccelli, the event champions the rise of the design-maker and seeks to challenge the traditional chain of production and distribution. “The gaze of this 2021 edition turns beyond the border, with particular attention to the Mediterranean,” says Dardi, the curator of the fair, as collaborations were formed between international brands and designers, including those from France, Lebanon and the Netherlands.

EDIT Napoli is a refreshing twist on a design fair, advocating for products and projects that promote quality over quantity, territoriality over globalization, and those that make a transparent supply chain one of their strengths.

Held across cultural institutions throughout the city for Petruccelli, the director of the fair, it was a chance to connect with the historic and cultural value of Naples through a new lens. “In this third edition, the relationship with the city and the symbolic places of its history is consolidated by connecting them to important international institutions and realities of the design and project culture,” she says.

Supporting and celebrating a new generation of creators, EDIT Napoli is emerging as an autonomous force in contemporary design with Naples starring as the vessel for the creative process.
