THE ARTS+ marketplace for value chains across cultural & creative businesses
THE ARTS+, a fair for new business models in the cultural and creative industries, is celebrating its premiere at this year’s Frankfurt Book Fair, 19-23 October, targeting cultural and creative professionals as well as publishers and software/IT companies. Professionals from all areas of culture and the creative scene, brands, developers, publishers, technology companies and media representatives will meet in Frankfurt to share ideas through presentations, exhibitions, a laboratory, workshops and conferences, creating a unique new network.
The democratisation of content through digitisation and the subsequent questions on how to deal with intellectual property has created new opportunities: museums digitise their archives and make them accessible to everyone, all year round, 3D printers reproduce miniatures of designer furniture, technology companies use customers’ mobile photos for worldwide campaigns and galleries sell their art via Instagram. At the same time, self-publishing has become much simpler and cheaper due to digital progress. Indeed, all communication has become faster and more visual. For all forms of media, diverse sales platforms ranging from concept stores to blogs and social media to entire culture stores have appeared. As the world’s largest rights marketplace and one of the most important European cultural events, the Frankfurt Book Fair has now created a platform for this: starting in 2016, THE ARTS+ will be the first marketplace for all cultural content. It will also host a global think tank for the creative society.
THE ARTS+ will comprise presentations from publishers, special areas for thematic workshops and talks, salons and a centre for rights trading. THE ARTS+ is directed at anyone who produces, manages, exhibits, publishes, presents, remixes or refines cultural content – publishers, designers, architects, directors and curators of museums and institutions, software developers, media representatives, brand managers, artists, photographers and politicians.
The new marketplace will be located in Hall 4.1 on the fair grounds.

Audiovase™ @ Kickstarter
The Audiovase™ by Shuffle Three™ rethinks the music-listening experience and questions what users really want in an audio accessory. Until now the assumption was that listening to electronic devices required other electronic devices such as headphones or Bluetooth speakers to make the listening experience enjoyable but the Audiovase™ challenges that assumption by providing a simple, intuitive solution that uses form and surface geometry to reflect and amplify sound emitted by the device itself.

Where to leave the food for the Fish was the question Bas asked himself when he got one as gift. It was always standing next to the bowl, so he designed a fishbowl with an integrated container for the food. Place the bowl from to column and you can access the food.

3D Printed Vases
Libero Rutilo creates a collection of design vases combining upcycling and 3D printing technology. The project gives a second chance to such an unvalued object as a PET bottle. The vase itself represents an external shell with an inner neck fillet, so it can be screwed onto a bottle like a cap. The collection includes four different designs: “Spider vase”, “Sinuous Vase”, “Lace Vase” and "Knitted Vase". The vases are available on Tessa’s Curated Boutique.

Smökers installation New York
Smökers consists of a miniature monochromatic wooden cabin, temporarily installed throughout New York City. This cabin replaces the brightly colored plastic steam tubes that dot the New York landscape, allowing the byproduct of the city’s essential industrial process, which provides power and heat to thousands of homes and businesses throughout the city, to be highlighted and subverted.

Sunset wall mirror
The Sunset wall mirror combines the functionality and the beautiful, natural look of a solid cork pinboard with the elegant shimmer of a full-sized mirror that comes in several colours, representing a fresh take on the cork pinboard. Sunset wall mirror is part of the new Sunset Series. One circle and one or two straight lines are the humble foundation of this product family that investigates how a minimum amount of design can still produce beautiful, meaningful and fully functional products.
Designer: Bas van der Veer (Netherlands)
