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.
Cabinet of Curiosities
The ‘Cabinet of Curiosities’ exhibited at the 'Salone del Mobile' is a sculptural piece. Copper strings are vertically stretched in a steel framework based on two bended legs. In between the strings hollow shaped plates of steel and copper form niches in which one is able to display for example a piece of jewelery or other curiosities. Although the used metal weighs quite heavy the open transparent structure of thin wires creates a sense of lightness. The round shapes of the niches together with the slightly bended strings result in an almost fleecy and warm quality. In this piece Poelmann is looking for the edge between design and sculpture as he shows us an object in which aesthetics are more important than functionality.
