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.
A continued lifelong exploration of shape and revelation, vessels are beautifully crafted and then cut to reveal the interior. Each shape that comes from the cut is uniquely its own and is determined by the interior space of the piece. Expanding the work from being purely a vessel into a sculpture. These pieces are scorched by the ash in a fire. Frustration, tears, and the rage of a year with no control put into a fire and burned away. The vividness of their scorch marks are so emotional and yet so beautiful. The work envelopes a dichotomy of full control over the making of the vessels and the loss of control in their firing.
