Form&Seek London Design Fair2017
Form&Seek will be part of Dutch Pavilion at London Design Fair on 21-24 September 2017
Form&Seek exhibitions always show a consideration to new crafts, material and processes.
With this upcoming show Form&Seek explores the theme of "Openness" where we focus on what designers with a vision of across borders and cultures, make and design in order to shift attitudes and cultures for the a more inclusive future. Form&Seek explores the idea of Dutch design, not through a national lens but as an attitude and way of thinking.
For the first time ever Form&Seek launches its own collection during London Design Festival as well as a producing and selling platform, enabling consumers and retailers to purchase original and innovative crafted goods from a curated collection founded and run by designers.
The Form&Seek collection focuses on new developed processes and contemporary, globally local craft techniques. Interesting, innovative materials and processes play a key role in the pieces by Form&Seek. Each item tells a story through the way it has been made or the impact it has on our daily lives.
Our new collection expands on a wide range of crafted products from conventional products prototyped with new technologies to products that play with natural formations and uses of material. Each thought provoking, poetic design object has a strong character and personality with the personal mark of the maker.
Glasses for Water
Jane Kim’s ultra thin crystal glassware for water lovers. With the Colette water bar in Paris to L.A’s water menus and sommeliers, the popularity of drinking water is unrivalled to any other in the drinks in the industry. The most consumed worldwide beverage of last year was bottled water as reported by Forbes magazine. The consumption of such water reached 233 billion litres and in response to this demand the growth of high-end speciality water brands have to put it literally, begun to flood the market. In celebration of water this is a project exploring a new way of delivering the subtleties of water through the taxonomy of glasses. A pursuit to enhance user knowledge and experience as well as enhancing the taste of different water varieties.
The glasses decrease in volume representing the increase in price of each water and its value. The commoditisation of water. With accompanying 1 Litre carafes for still and sparkling waters Jane wanted to elevate the water drinking experience and design glassware that enhances the beauty of the drink; hand blown in lead free crystal she is preparing to launch this product into the market this year.
