Substance by Form&Seek
Curated by Bilge Nur Saltik & Sophie Yan
Form&Seek creates a platform for designers from diverse backgrounds to showcase their work in design fairs all around the world. Each year, we gather cutting-edge design works around a certain theme. For Detroit Month of Design 2019, we have curated works from local designers and makers to highlight the creativity in the city.
This year’s theme of “Substance” centers around the processes of material exploration as a driving force of design. Much like the designers of the Bauhaus, Detroit designers are returning to craft-based practices in a post-industrial climate, finding ways of bridging the gap between machine-made and hand-made.
