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.
Lavina Peswani is an intricate work of art; as an artist, she has always had a passion for complexity and patterns, and her mind has always been a multilayered entity eager to shout out to the world. Born and raised in Gran Canaria, and having Indian roots, she is a true hybrid whose character has developed into a multitude of fragments, as if from an infinite number of paintings, or pieces out of a puzzle in the making.
With her passion, initiative and dreams clasped tightly in her hands, Lavina set out for a life-changing journey in Bristol, England, where she attended the University of the West of England (UWE), studying Textile Design. Something in her moved as she headed towards the end of her degree. It felt as if something urged her to continue more than it ever had. Indeed, she moved on to acquire a First Class Honors degree, and enrolled for a Masters in Printed Textile Design at the Royal College of Art (RCA) in London.
Lavina Peswani’s work is intricate and complex, and it invokes emotions via its exploration of identity and culture, questioning our existence and her personal identity. She believes that, ultimately, we are one, and through mixing patterns from various cultural backgrounds and natures, she effectively expresses every explored philosophy.
She is currently based in Madrid.
