A part of London Design Festival 2021, Shoreditch Design Triangle, and Adorno London, Tactile Baltics will invite people to discover the Baltics and the region’s deep-rooted connection to nature. With a focus on tactility, visitors can feel the environment around them as they trace a path through the exhibition.
Tactile Baltics is organised and curated by NID, the Latvian Design Centre, and the Lithuanian Design Forum. The Shoreditch-based exhibition will showcase work by established and up-and-coming designers. Eighteen contemporary design projects — six from each country — will comprise examples of tableware, furniture, lighting, textiles, and jewellery.
Installations will offer visitors the opportunity to gain an understanding of key themes related to Baltic design, including: sustainability, tradition, craftsmanship, innovation, and materials.
In collaboration with Adorno — a curated online gallery for contemporary collectible design — Tactile Baltics will also feature a series of limited edition collectible design works, both as part of its Shoreditch exhibition and at Adorno London. Altogether, Tactile Baltics is a momentous and exciting opportunity to present a collection of contemporary Baltic design, and to build an appreciation and awareness of design from Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania.
