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.
Robin Pleun Maas
Robin Pleun Maas is a product and material designer with love for textiles. During her studies at the Design Academy in Eindhoven she explored the field of interior materials and fashion accessories. Her designs arise from a playful experiment and intuitive process in which the material is the starting point.
Her graduation project “acoustic landscapes” and “structured textiles” are an example. When viewers change their position from the carpet or manipulate the textiles with their hands, the interwoven patterns are revealed to encourage continued interaction.
Besides its visual appeal they can offer a functional role. They can serve interiors in more than one way. She wants to redefine the boundaries and characteristics of the material and thereby aims to create innovative combinations and unexpected functions and forms.
