UNIKAT B seeks to distinguish itself from comparable sales exhibitions of contemporary applied art and design by selecting outstanding representatives from a range of sectors and also by defining thematic focus. This permits a consistent curatorial approach over a period of many years and an exploration of contemporary topical themes and trends in design.
UNIKAT B sees itself as a meeting place which seeks to bring together art and design chosen on the basis of stringent quality criteria. Each year exhibitors are selected by a jury who look for both experimentation and proven artistic achievement when making their decision.
The spectrum of the sales exhibition encompasses fashion, jewellery, ceramics, textiles, lighting, metal furniture, glass, paper, wood and much more. To be selected works must be both aesthetically pleasing and practical. Within the broadest sense explore contemporary issues along with the challenges posed by the particular material and hand manufactured articles.
