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.
Through The Looking Glass
Through the Looking Glass is a collection of scarves and scarf rings which work together and satisfy the human desire to look beyond the surface and see what lies beneath. The ring becomes an instrument to refract our vision, showing the detail of the weave and the resolution of the print. It distorts the patterns into wild, unpredictable shapes and colours.
Like ripples in a pond, sand dunes in a desert or waves of sound, nature presents us with patterns of regularity and harmony. As humans we have always had the urge to look further than this tranquil surface. Science has shown us the microscopic and even molecular structures that make up our world. What we discovered were complex and wild landscapes of small particles and energy.
The scarves are fine silk surfaces of graphic pattern, with hardly any volume or substance. The scarf rings are clear, handmade, almost invisible glass volumes. The scarves have been designed as abstracted visions of nature’s perfection. The rings are designed to question it.
The silk scarves are digitally printed in England and the scarf rings are handmade by glassmakers and jewellers in Istanbul.
