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.
Dot series is a container collection designed by Bilge Nur Saltık for Uniqka. To emphasize the natural beauty of leather, the designer concentrated on its opacity character. Leather as a material like our skin observant but not pervious. Observing this quality Nur designed a playful pattern that has peepholes to see what is inside. A little `pee ka boo`
Dot combines vegetable tanned leather with glass cylinders to create support. The geometric pattern on the rounded body leads us to focus on the diffusion of light. The idea is combining two different characters of glass and leather, assigning them a role in between.
Celebrating the beauty of leather as a living material the tanned color leather changes and evolves over time and by its surroundings. Dot can be used as a vase for plants as well as a storage for pens, tools, etc.
