Digital exhibition 

Accompanying the physical exhibition at The Seoul Museum of Craft Art (SeMoCA), this digital exhibition reflects LOEWE’s ongoing search for solutions that place sustainability at the forefront—designed in native dark mode, it reduces digital strain, saves energy, and draws focus to the artworks. 

Further exploring our dedication to creativity in all forms and disciplines, the LOEWE FOUNDATION has invited six authors to write a response to the 30 shortlisted works, highlighting their design, craftsmanship, and intrinsic beauty with short texts that are a insightful, humorous, and poetic. 

The Room

Our digital platform, The Room, is the first public database of contemporary craft. Designed to enable artists to share their work with a global audience, it also gives viewers the opportunity to discover, research and collect art by the world’s most innovative craftspeople working today. Artists can upload their own content and imagery and provide contact details for enquiries.

Winner of the LOEWE FOUNDATION Craft Prize 2022

The Craft Prize jury has met in Seoul for deliberations and selected A Time of Sincerity by Dahye Jeong as the winner of this year's prize. Made from horsehair, the piece has been crafted using a 500-year old hat-making technique. The jury celebrated Jeong’s dedication to reviving and updating the tradition, one of the key aims of the Craft Prize, as well as the delicate perfection, transparency and lightness of the work.

The Jury also agreed to award two special mentions. One goes to Andile Dyalvane for his work Cornish Wall. The other special mention goes to Verborgen by Julia Obermaier.
