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.
EXTENTS is a collaborative that is interested in architecture, urbanism, media, digital technology, and other instruments of life that can be impacted by design. We operate across scales and disciplinary silos – from pop-up public spaces that leverage the interactive capacities of architecture and technology to foster new forms of public engagement, to visionary urban design projects that speculate on how the materiality of our digital culture can be deployed to create more inclusive and aesthetic environments. Established in 2017, the collaborative is led by Cyrus Peñarroyo and McLain Clutter, faculty at the University of Michigan Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning. Together, our body of work has been honored with several awards, including a New York Architecture League Prize in 2019, and two Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture Faculty Design Awards (2019, 2020). We have exhibited internationally, in venues including the 2019 Bi-City Shenzhen Biennale of Urbanism\Architecture.
