Noticing a resurgence in storytelling since the advancement of digital platforms in our daily lives, Robert Curran decided to have a look back in the history of storytelling, following the tracks of cabinets of curiosity and Victorian natural history museums. This led him to create “Illuminations”, a vessel for visual stimulation, connecting to a tradition of shadow puppetry. By playing with light and by tearing the Desktop linoleum apart in such a way that the material becomes a miniature representation of a landscape, Robert is triggering our imagination to conjure up stories and memories.
We believe the designer’s role is about looking beyond the surface – to make responsible decisions and to understand the ethical implications of one’s choices.
In partnership with Forbo, we have investigated the ethical implications of design through material, form and function. We have designed artifacts that embody various kinds of gatherings; the gathering of materials and the gathering of people – all about stimulating interaction through design.
Let’s talk, share and play!
