In times of economic crisis, the demand of craftsmanship, quality and durability sounds increasingly louder. After the 20th century conceptual experiments and transience, slowness and craftsmanship are entering art again. The handmade object is given a new place next to the concept or the mass product. Durability beats efficiency. The 21st century craftsmanship is original and innovative, resulting into products that unite the best of two worlds, combining the skills of the 19th century craftsman with the great ideas of the 20th century.
