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.
Eye of the Light
Metal fabric weaved to reflect light. It can be modelled into various shapes, forming perfect texture for light to play with. The fabric, while made in metal, achieves quite an organic expression. Front and back side of this fabric are different. Glimmering with colors is achieved through the process of steel galvanization. Fabric is hand crafted, weaved from metal and assembly in Warsaw.
I am interested in an ornament which is closely related to form, resulting from the structure of the project. In this approach I am inspired by nature - wings of butterflies, scale of fish, birds’ shimmering feather - as well as by picturing a magical flower of fern. It is the very fabric that serves as ornament, but also the sparkles of light reflected off its surface and dancing around.
Project “Eye of the light” implemented thanks to a grant from the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage “The Young Poland”
