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.
Form&Seek Design Collective
Bilge Nur Saltik (Founder, Form&Seek), Aaron Blendowski (Artist & Designer) and Alison Wong (Director + Curator, Wasserman Projects) will discuss the concept and development of Never Normal, an exhibition created by the Detroit based design collective Form&Seek, produced by Wasserman Projects. Featuring works by over 20 designers, Never Normalexpresses the ever-changing viewpoint of the designer’s perspective on the built world. Looking away from the conventional means of solving problems, the works in this exhibition seek to reexamine and reevaluate our personal relationships to our domestic landscape. Through craft or making, these designers are able to express value, preciousness, and care that offer intuitive moments of clarity on contemporary issues in response to the needs of a society in flux. The future now seems inscrutable, provoking us to think of the possibilities and opportunities for change in human behaviors and our environment.
Form&Seek, together with Wasserman Projects, is proud to present Never Normal in Detroit to honor its history as the cradle of American design and to uphold the city as a platform for new experimental design.
In partnership with Wasserman Projects. Our 2020-2021 Series is brought to you with the support of our streaming partners, Detroit Public Television and PBS Books.
