Gesture: 5 new projects which explore gesture as the root of artistic expression.

From small domestic tasks to naive scrawling, each action is considered with a similar weight. A smear of frothy soap swiped across a windowpane is seen with the same wonder as paint splashed across canvas and the furtive child like scribbles of crayon on pristine walls could very well be the making of a masterpiece.

Five designers — Patricia Urquiola, Sabine Marcelis, Philippe Malouin, Mae Engelgeer and Yuri Himuro – meditate on gesture’s meaning and investigate how the simple movement of hands and tools can lead their creative process.
