The exhibition Follow Us introduces selected works by new and emerging designers, recently arrived on the scene. The designers have all attracted attention and excitement for their early works, each in their own field.
Coalescence and collaboration across fields is prominent, but Coalescence and collaboration across fields is prominent, but the designers look inwards, outwards and forwards in search of new ways to deal with the subjects of today and tomorrow: Sustainability and society’s combination with man-made ecosystems; on one hand, ecological maximal utilisation of animal products and on the other, their substitutes in the nutrition cycle; performance anxiety and lack of inspiration against free play and creative force; the future of fashion and our multi-layered self-image in virtual reality and the palpable world.
Curator is Sara Jónsdóttir, Ex Director of DesignMarch.
