Good Design Exhibition
Some of the more interesting details and qualities found in our domestic environments come not from the interior architecture itself or dominating furniture centre pieces, but from smaller, sometimes overlooked items, which have a richer, more personal relevance. Given the social and cultural importance of food in our lives, these items are often found in the kitchen or on the dinner table.
As designers, we have a fascination with the role of these small utilitarian objects. We like to consider them as an opportunity, not only to address a practical need, but also to act as an important form of visual and emotional punctuation in our daily lives. Our objective is to create products for the home that embody a quiet confidence, and which reveal flashes of character and thoughtful consideration through use. They compliment the context in which they are used rather than dominate it, and while they may be ubiquitous, sometimes even unglamourous, they are nonetheless designed to stand up to the closest inspection, while never overtly demanding it.
Over the years we have continually come back to our interest in household objects as a way of refining the details of domestic life. In this exhibition we present some of our recent commercial work for the brands Thomas/Rosenthal (Germany), no.30 and JIA Inc. (Taiwan), which all touches upon this theme.
