Is craftwork really returning to design? Are contemporary designers increasingly reverting to traditional craft techniques and materials? Has skill in handicrafts really become a real seal of quality in design again? We asked our writers these questions and, as always, got extremely different answers. And yet, all of them do indeed see a trend in which crafts are playing an increasingly important role. In terms of origins and reasons, however, opinions differ. Find out what Thomas Edelmann, Markus Frenzl, Thomas Wagner, Marcel Krenz, Nora Sobich and others have to say on the topic.
