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.
Nordic Mood collection is a result of an experimental design project and an extensive material research, which focuses on aesthetic and functional possibilities of bringing together ceramics and glass during the glassblowing process. The project involves with the development of new specialised ceramic clays from raw materials, with thermal shock resistance and durability required for glassblowing along with experimentation with glassblowing methods and techniques for exploring the relationship between two materials.
Using ceramic directly in the glassblowing process opens up many possibilities in the creative process. The project utilizes the outcomes of this extensive practical research in ceramic materials and glassblowing techniques to display various ways of joining two materials together while exploring the aesthetic and functional potential of this combination in terms of texture, form, color and finishes.
Objects in the Nordic Mood collection are inspired by the atmosphere, impression, and colors of the sky in Finland.
