onlab present the first issue of GRAFT – a new magazine-in-magazine on materials

• GRAFT is a magazine on materials written by lateral thinkers. By bridging information between researchers, producers and creative professionals Graft Magazine encourages lateral thinking.

Each issue will be distributed locally with a cooperating magazine. Consistent with the idea of cross-disciplinary thinking this hosting media partner will differ with every new edition of GRAFT.

Graft Magazine is a supplement on materials. The hosting magazine, the topic and the supporting partners compose the significance of GRAFT.

The current issue with contributions by Vasco Mourao, Martin Krammer, Maria Morais and Brazilian artist Marepe is presented in cooperation with Brownbook magazine. It is distributed in Milan with Brownbook issue No38; March-April 2013.

With FRUIT we discuss the impact of fruit and its components giving inspiration to diverse fields such as materials research, design and art. Find out how the multifunctional design of fruits vivifies new material developments.

The topic FRUIT refers to the exhibition JUICE that is presenting a fresh selection of galleries, editors and designers during the Salone del Mobile 2013 in Milano (Italy). JUICE will be the setting for the launch of “Fruit”, the juicy issue of Graft Magazine in GARAGE MILANO, Via Maiocchi 5/7, Milano (MM1 P.ta Venezia). The show runs from April 8th-14th 2013, 11.00am – 9.00pm.
