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.
Installation (Party Sculpture)
Every year humans produce over 300 million pounds of new plastic. The smallest unit for the sale and shipment of this material is the gaylord, an apprx. 48” x 40” x 36” box, usually sitting on a pallet, that is used to ship this material. Within it’s long lifetime plastic can travel all over the world. Plastic Vacation is an installation exploring the relationship between the gigantic international plastics market and the objects of our domestic fantasies. At the center of the installation is a sand-art style recreations of an industrial plastic gaylord, filled with shredded plastic waste from a toy factory. Emerging from this colorful cube are domestic objects and sculptures made from the same material though with varying industrial and craft processes. Standing outside of the box is a mini-installation of a 16-candled green candelabra sitting atop pallet-esque blocks of compressed plastic material. This work was made in Detroit during the great summer quarantine of 2020.
