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.
The Phare collection comprises of a chromed aluminum pill-shaped reflector, (also available in Brass) which has been extruded and inserted on to a polished stainless steel base. The matte white tapered shade sits over the reflector, held in place due to the marginal tolerance allowances to create a seamless and minimal aesthetic.
The lamp appears void of any light source, the vertical pill-shaped opening implies the location for a bulb, although absent. Once illuminated, the LED strip light that is set into the CNC manufactured base emits an acute light stream, that reaches the opening and disperses. The white shade reflects and diffuses the light source creating an indirect luminosity.
The Phare Collection creates a distinctive light source for a desk or bedside table, that when illuminated reflects onto the ceiling creating an ambient impression.
