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.

Wood, Optic film
Dagny Rewera and Dimi Constantinides of BornAnIdea showcase Opto –a table that explores the phenomenon of light polarisation – bringing the extraordinary into the everyday environment.
Through layering polarising materials in a choreographed way, the translucent table topexplodes into an array of colours when light penetrates the glass. By rotating the surface, the user can explore the hidden hues beneath, adjusting the colour palette to their liking.
In response to an ancient saying ‘a table is a table and only a table’, the designers wanted toreconstruct this perception of one of the most ordinary objects in our personal and intimatespaces and offer a magical and unexpected dimension to the product.
