Celebrate the importance of modern craftsmanship at the LOEWE Foundation’s exhibition at The Design Museum. Running from May 4 to June 17, the newest addition to the museum will showcase some of the best contemporary works shortlisted for the 2018 edition of the LOEWE Craft Prize.

Launched in 2016, the accolade honours the creativity, excellence and innovation in modern craftsmanship spanning a range of styles – ceramics, metalwork, glass, woodwork, jewellery and more. Ultimately, it pays homage to LOEWE’s 1846 beginnings as a craft workshop.
