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.
Natalia Triantafylli is a designer-maker based in Athens, Greece. She always has been following interdisciplinary paths, while currently her focus is on the creation of artifacts that are more critical or propositional and act as forms of expression. Her work is characterized by curiosity and hybridity and through her projects she seeks the limits of the used mediums while redefining her role within the design process. She approaches craft-based experimentation as a theoretically informed practice and she usually takes over the whole design development until the actual realization of the artifacts. Identifying embodiment as a crucial aspect of her practice she reflects on autoethnographical references, aiming at the emergence of narratives that are rooted in the tacit aspects of creativity.
