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.
Bilge Nur Saltik
Bilge Nur Saltık is a designer from Istanbul, Turkey. She studied Industrial Design and Graphic Design in Yeditepe University. After working for a year she moved to London to do a Masters degree. She completed her MA on the Design Products Course at the Royal College of Art in 2013.
Her approach to design merges culture in a contemporary way. She focuses on the stories behind objects and the human behaviour triggered by objects she designs. Working with traditional craftsmen, she introduces them to new materials, thus utilising their knowledge and techniques but adapting their skills. This results in the invention of original methods for fabricating products that combine the old with the new.
