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.
Canadian artist-designer Jordan Söderberg Mills interprets the 'Age of Man,' as the age of reason–of scientific inquiry, analysis, and understanding. Human consciousness is a rare gift, he says, and our ability to observe the world around us is even more precious. Interested in how we perceive the world through our senses, Söderberg Mills builds objects that focus light, volume, wavelength, and colour as a bridge between the perceptual self and the objective universe. His series of Anaglyphic Mirrors, which will be seen in this exhibit, bends and refracts wavelengths of colour, creating seemingly digital filters on the real world. Akin to his broader practice, in Anaglyphic Mirrors too, Söderberg Mills sets out to create a sense of curiosity about the unknown, build little atmospheres that play with natural physics, provoke inquiry about the world around us, and render light in new ways.
