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.
Angled Tables are designed to adapt to the user’s needs for working methods. With their wheels, separator channels, and rounded corners, they can be rearranged to make space for workshops, individual- or group work without suggesting a particular way of working.
Its natural, durable materials coupled with robust welded legs allow casual leaning and sitting gestures aside from typical work surface use. The light-colored, low-texture, flat varnished birch plywood amplify the use of ambient light and prevent any distraction due to unnecessary patterns on the material - a common issue in some other plywood types. Below, steel powder coated anthracite metal box profiles is used in an optimized geometry composition to provide a welded base and legs.
Detachable metal separators can be colored in any color, helping the user to personalize his/her space with the possibility of marker use and magnets for pin-ups.
This simple yet refined table becomes the atomic particle of a larger CNVS work surface systems, enabling permutations for future iterations.
