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.
Hairy Creature Speakers
These speakers are like friendly pets to have around. You can take them for a walk and enjoy their glow in the dark. On request of Yamaha, Studio Tord Boontje has transformed these industrially produced speakers into handcrafted objects. This approach to technology stems from the studio’s desire to make everyday objects warm, characterful and materially interesting. The exaggerated handle on top clearly expresses the portability of this rechargeable Bluetooth speaker and references transmission antennas. The light is amplified by a custom made an acrylic lens, which also functions as a sound reflector.
