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.
Lignes de Capiton
Lignes de Capiton presents an innovative and original use of the traditional upholstery technique of capiton- nage - button sofa.
the wood beams function both as an alternative to
the buttons that pin-down the cushioned fabric and as means of giving a shape and a pattern to an otherwise flat surface. The outcome is an object that lies some- where between a bench and a sofa; a naked frame and a cushion.
The name of the project, Lignes de Capiton, is a refer- ence to Jacques Lacan’s term “point de Capiton” - the point(s) in which signified and signifier are held to- gether, giving rise to an illusion of a fixed meaning to language.
I worked with an expert upholsterer in order to chal- lenge the traditional craft of capitonnage by replacing its basic element - the point, with a line.
