From raw cement to ultralight plastics, compact forms to unpredictable balances of solids and voids, miniature to giant scale, the projects in the exhibition stimulate a series of reflections on the key role of contemporary design in forecasting urgent needs and increasingly complex desires. The designers focus in these works is on the value - if such a value exists - of creativity applied to a product. In a feather-weight exhibit, the design is exposed to the blunt judgment of an ideal international office of weights and measures, in a continuous flow of images that reveal the true value, per gram, of a design object. Catalogued based on their weight, the projects selected for 13,798 grams of design transform the space of the Lambretto Art Project into a sort of weigh station of creativity, where research on innovative materials, with a focus on aesthetic results and advanced ideas, are the criteria of a survey that presents projects by the most significant voices on the international design scene, including many works never previously shown in Italy. A free-press publication, in tabloid format, produced by Mousse Publishing and distributed at all the most interesting locations on the contemporary art and design circuit, will tell the story of the double event at Lambrate: the exhibition 13,798 grams of design and the designers featured at Ventura Lambrate.
