Francisco Gomez Paz Lecture

Argentinian designer working in Milan. He has developed products for leading design companies, including well-known lighting fixtures and furniture. His approach to design is driven by his own curiosity, the knowledge of technology and materials and a highly experimental hands-on creative process. He has received several international awards, including prestigious Compasso d’Oro.

Tuesday 28.3. at 18:00, Library

The lecture is part of the Design Talks serious.

Patrick Norguet Lecture

French designer Patrick Norguet, belongs to that generation which is making known the “french touch” on the international stage. His sense of color and formal purity coupled with continual search for comfort parallels well with Nordic design. Mr Norguet has worked with several mayor furniture producers such as Cappellini. His works also include close collaborations with the fashion world.

Utstilling i Rådhusgalleriet, Oslo

www, Internet is for reals?

The BA2 students from Interior Architecture & Furniture Design exhibit at the Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair. The exhibition investigates the relationship between the digital and physical worlds through furniture.

We are constantly living on the very edge between the digital and the physical worlds, slowly blurring the boundaries of the two. Through experimentation both in theory and in studios the students have approached the task personally and made prototypes telling different stories simulating possible scenarios. Digital storage for example: Did you know that only 0,5% of what is stored by your web browsing is usable information? How would that translate to a cabinet? Or what happens in between the layers on the desktop when brought back to materiality. We invite you to our stand to discuss the effects of digital living.

The stand is located in the Greenhouse area at VH01:19. The fair opens on Tuesday 7.2. and continues until 11.2..
