MANO Select

The fascination of handmade resides in its profound aesthetics as well as the nostalgia of slowness and deliberateness.

MANO is the curator for lifestyle. “MANO” stands for “hand” in Italian. As makers ourselves, we would like to embody the effort and ingenuity of the craftsman so as to promote the value of handmade and bring the warmth and beauty of it back to our post- industrial society.

In May 2015, we took the challenge to start “MANO Select”, a select shop based on the concept of “Handmade”. We select contemporary craft works which are manufactured with the utmost attention as well as innovative details by talented makers locally and internationally.  The selected categories include jewellery, art object, textile work, bag, ceramic, glass, etc.  

慢鏝選東西

手造的迷人可以在它博大精深的美學觀,但也能是單純地對細活慢工的眷戀。

2015年5月 MANO慢鏝策展團隊開始了新旅程 -「慢鏝選東西MANO Select」是以「手造」為出發點的概念選品店,生活風格的策展人,“MANO”是義大利文“手”的意思,我們以不同的概念形式去體現藝匠們的巧思與心力,以同是手藝人的角度來延續和推展當代手作的精神與價值,致力為這個後工業化冰冷社會迎回手造的溫暖與美感,發掘台灣及國際上具潛力的創作者,選品品項除了當代首飾之外,另有立體物件、織品、手工包款、生活器物、陶藝、玻璃等當代工藝,讓創作過程裡投入情感揉捏的故事百態被看見 !

工業化的時代讓人重新省思人與人之間的關係,還有人和自己的手和內心的連結,越來越多人想找回人與土地、自然、和自己關聯,這時,冰冷的機器和電腦不再滿足人們的需求,手造的價值將再起,而當創作者不再只是各自閉門造車,而有了空間、平台互相交流,跨界合作,讓這樣的價值被更多人看見與認同,讓手造精神給予社會更多的療癒力量,這是我們MANO慢鏝所嚮往的烏托邦吧~
