Thirst Innovation will showcase designs crafted from a single sheet of paper, reworked to create a single drinking vessel. Using imaginatively and skill, artists will use this simple medium and transform it into a completely new element- a cup.
Designs will be judged by professionals in the industry, across four categories, culminating in an award for the top entries as chosen by popular vote, and by the design experts. Yao Fen You, the assistant curator of European Sculpture and Decorative Arts at Detroit Institute of Arts, will be at the closing event, with a presentation about the evolution and ingenuity of tableware design.
