At Homo Faber, Luxury Craftspeople from Hermes, Mont Blanc Show The Value of Hand-Produced Crafts

When digital tools and modern technology can 3-D print an entire house in a day, luxury brands insist the best is still made by hand.

Venice, home of the world’s most famous architecture biennale and art biennale, has a new reason to stake its claim as the European centre for craftsmanship. The premier event of Homo Faber (“Made by Man”), a biennale that showcases and supports the artisans who dedicate themselves to the mastery of craftsmanship, took place at Fondazione Giorgio Cini on the Isola di San Giorgio Maggiore last month.
When digital tools and modern technology can 3-D print an entire house ? interiors and all ? in a day, the luxury brands at the exhibition nevertheless insist that their fine work is made best by hand. The event’s tagline, “Crafting a More Human Experience,” was distilled to the audience not only by emphasizing the virtue of the human-made products.
Homo Faber curator Alberto Cavalli spoke bluntly about how craftsman took a blow when times were bad. He underscored the difficult realities of an artisan making a handmade product, and emphasized the need for more mutual respect. This exhibition, grandeur and luxury aside, was a way to beseech the public to save a luxury industry under threat.
