London Design Fair -Shows within the Show - Adorno

With just 3 days until the doors to the London Design Fair 2018 open we present our "shows within the show" a selection of gallery style exhibitions taking place within the Fair. Aside from the host of designers and brands exhibiting independently these features are curated shows of their own; thought provoking and visually arresting.
 

 

Adorno

Now Nordic brings together 5 curators from 5 Nordic countries; Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Iceland who have selected 5-7 pieces from their country in order to explore the commonalities and differences between the collections. The design produced by these five countries is traditionally grouped under the label of ‘Nordic’ design world shorthand for clean lines, natural materials, simplicity and functionality. By juxtaposing collections of contemporary works from the five Nordic countries, the international design platform Adorno seeks to determine whether these design cultures do indeed share a common thread or whether categorising them under a single banner risks overlooking the characteristics and approaches that make each creative culture distinct.

London Design Fair - Shows within the Show - Plastic, Beyond the Chipper
 

Material of the Year: Plastic, Beyond the Chipper

A response to research into the reuse of plastics within the design industry Material of the Year: Plastic, Beyond the Chipper looks beyond the brash and bright examples of plastic reuse and presents four designers: Dirk vander Kooij, Charlotte Kidger, Kodai Iwamoto and Weez & Merl, who are treating gathered plastic waste as a 'virgin material',  imbuing the material with new worth and meaning; a longterm solution to the single-use plastic issue. For the exhibition design Movisi’s modular Link System is welcomed back to the Fair. Commissioned  by the Tent London and designed by PearsonLloyd back in 2007, the four designers work will be interspersed within the black Expanded Polypropylene partitions, weaving through the exhibition space.

Czech Republic:UMPRUM
David Šedina

Titled Colours of Transparency the exhibition, as part of the London Design Fair, explores the pellucidity and hue of glass with work from 23 students on display.
All trained in the studio of glass within the Academy of Arts, Architecture, and Design in Prague the practitioners reveal their dynamic approach to the material, transforming it in truly unique ways. 

The collection showcases the latest work from UMPRUM students, who are working with paint, disrupting classic design concepts and experimenting with the medium.
The objects are timeless, they cross the boundaries of traditional glassmaking and meddle between the fields of design and fine art all whilst honouring a high level of quality craftsmanship. See the full line-up HERE
