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.
Loom Divide is a room divider based on the workings of a loom. The screen of warp threads allows for an interchangeable woven design. One can create different levels of visibility and translucency by controlling the amount of layers, the colours used and materials woven. This system allows for an endless array of visual possibilities.
The use of multi-coloured English bakers twine adds to the Moiré effect of the two layers of thread, making it more difficult to look through the screen while still letting light come through. This effect also allows one to have an animated experience of the colours and interference as they walk past.
Loom Divide introduces a traditional and internationally recognisable maker’s device – with a new form – to our contemporary living environment.
For the construction of the loom, no screws or glue are used as the woven threads function as hinges and hold the constructiontogether at the same time. The woven hinges have virtually no friction, which makes it easy to move the screen around. The hinges can fold 360 degrees, which makes Loom Divide foldable to a compact size that is easy to store and transport.
