Theme: LIVING TRACES
"The story of human life is told by the traces of our journey through it.
Every object we create is a time capsule to be rediscovered, a monument with fascinating stories to tell.
From ancient times to the present, the artefacts we design are used by coming generations to understand us. They act as coded messages, showing how we lived, worked and came together, how we created and what we valued.
They also inform the future, design evolving as we do. The movement of ideas from generation to generation inspires new forms and icons. A chair was once a stone or a branch, and through a process of evolution it became something else. What could it be next?
P.S I'll be releasing a new lighting range with Matt Harding. Called Exo Series. And also exhibiting a table in collaboration with Chris Shaw! Can't wait to see you all there!
