In February 2014 The Aram Gallery will open a new exhibition exploring the uses of two materials in contemporary design; cardboard and paper. Whilst the use of cardboard is frequent and even expected in the prototyping stages of design, it is less commonplace to see finished designs made from it.
This exhibition brings together a selection of designs which are constructed predominantly or solely from cardboard or paper. Furniture sits next to jewellery, inviting comparison on the versatility of these materials. The scope of products on show describes the potential of these everyday materials when in the hands of these selected and talented practitioners.
The Aram Gallery is interested in the way designers think and work. This exhibition continues our exploration into the diversity of uses and applications of two very common materials.
Confirmed participants include:
Cottrell & Vermeulen Architecture Ltd, El Ultimo Grito, Johannes Hemann, Iain Howlett, Javier Mariscal for Magis, Francine Oeyen, Siba Sahabi, Will Shannon, Pia Wüstenberg, Debbie Wijskamp amongst others.
