Explore The Souvenir Project in this short film, a new collection of objects that explore our local context and question what a souvenir might be. This collection of nine new Irish souvenirs challenges the perceived notions of Ireland, championing contemporary Irish design, supporting local production and embracing the subtleties of the land, weather, histories and people.
The Souvenir Project has been commissioned by ID2015 and is curated by Makers & Brothers Creative Director, Jonathan Legge. First seen at London Design Festival 2015, it travels to Eindhoven for Dutch Design Week as part of Liminal – Irish design at the threshold.
