2015-2017 London Salons:
Furniture is one of the fundamentals with which we define the spaces that we live and work in and together with tools and clothing it was one of the first design disciplines to emerge. Yet the ways that furniture is designed, made, marketed, sold, used and disposed of are in constant flux and the role of the designer is changing. From early 2016 salons will take place for a year in London to discuss 'furniture design and the position of the designer', aiming to identify pointers for their future:
• East London studio-salons:
Round table conversations with invited professionals from the design scene take place at different locations in East London.
• London UK-NL XL-salons:
Salon pops up at Clerkenwell Design Week and the London Design Festival with on stage conversations between UK and NL speakers. All are open for an audience.
• Salon presentations:
Popup exhibitions with UK-NL cooperations during CDW and LDF. Open for an audience, supporting the salon research.
