Nature Lab at London Design Fair
|Date:||22nd-25th of September|
|Where:||Old Truman Brewery, British Craft Pavilion, Stand 3|
|RSVP:||Open to public|
As part of London Design Fair this year, The New Craftsmen and Crafts Council will be presenting Nature Lab – an immersive installation of contemporary British craft, originally shown at Design Miami Basel earlier this June as part of A Future Made– a programme aimed at promoting British Craft on an international stage.
Nature Lab is showing as part of the British Craft Pavilion at London Design Fair from 22– 25 September 2016. It is an immersive experience telling the story of nature transformed by six British craft talents and presented by Crafts Council and The New Craftsmen. Each maker has developed radical new techniques to transform such everyday substances as wood, sand, salt, clay, flowers and ice into objects of wonder.
The six makers in Nature Lab are Eleanor Lakelin; Emily Gardiner; Jochen Holz; Joseph Harrington; Marcin Rusak; and Marlène Huissoud. In the installation, designed by Gitta Gschwendtner, wild, encroaching nature is transmuted by skilled hands and ingenious minds into elemental objects that emerge from the darkness to conjure wonder and intrigue. A laboratory of nature will present what looks like insect glass, flower fossils and ice caught at the moment of melting.
