From 17 to 21 March 2016, the installation Yours and Ours by Fabrica will be part of Designing Lightness, a design exhibition by Rado curated by world-renowned trend forecaster Lidewij Edelkoort at Graf & Schelble gallery in Basel, Switzerland.
The contemporary design scene is on a quest for lightness. From the streamlining of ceramics to the use of transparencies or the injection of air, objects are set afloat and embedded with an ethereal energy that corresponds to our desire for a lighter existence. Material is the message and mindfulness is the movement.
Designing Lightness illustrates this tendency. By bringing together innovative works by international designers, Edelkoort and her team will show how a “weightless” socio‐cultural philosophy is being previewed in design today.
Yours and Ours, which is part of Fuha, an exhibition by Fabrica for Daikin presented at 2015 Milan Design Week, is composed of a series of different rounded shapes made of borosilicate glass and held closed by wooden clamps. They represent the blowing strength of each designer whose name is engraved on a metal tag tied to each piece. The glass pieces are displayed on burnt wood shelving fixed to the wall, as an alternative way of presenting the Fabrica creative team who worked at the Fuha exhibit. Design by Formafantasma.
