THE FRONT ROOM presents Geometry & Colours during Salone Del Mobile in Milan 2012. ‘Geometry colour’ is a presentation of new objects for the front room by 14 young designers. Each object is a fresh version of its predecessor, and all are united by the ritualistic nature of sheer geometries and strikingly contemporary colour palettes. In a departure from the amorphous forms that have preoccupied the design world in recent years, this up-and-coming group looks to purity with an element of playfulness.

The following designers are all alumni of DAE and will exhibit in The Front Room: Dana Cannam, David Derksen, Miya Kondo, Daphna Laurens, Mieke Meijer, Agata Karolina, OS & OOS, Lex Pott, Studio Like This. Also will be present designers: Phil Cuttance, Earnest Studio, Henny van Nistelrooy, Franziska Wernicke and Fabian von Spreckelsen.

The Front Room is the most diverse of our domestic space. It is where we mingle and entertain, read in solitude, stay up late and doze off early. The front room must accommodate many versions of ourselves, yet it is a place where we present a singular identity through the language of the products that we choose. It is a room where our families gather, for which we gather a family of objects.

Time

"Time" is the first project from ‘Studio Like This’, a new collaboration between Rotterdam-based designers and DAE alumni Miya Kondo and Sabine Marcelis. A clock which requires time be sought out rather than have it as a constant reminder of its passing. Only when approached front-on does the clock allow for the transparency to read time. Viewed from any other angle it disguises itself as a discreet wall object. Time is a marriage of classic analogue time-keeping and modern nano technology. Using a special film which gives a cloudy, translucent appearance when seen from an oblique angle, the time is fully revealed with clarity when directly in front of the object.

Time will be presented at The Front Room: Ca’Laghetto, Via Laghetto 11, Milan
Show: 17-22 April, 11-19h
Opening: 18 April, 18-01h
Shop: 21-22 April, 11-19h
