Exhibition curated by Mike Vanis and Cindy Strobach of Unit Lab, a design studio based in Peckham that aims to make science relevant by taking it out of the lab and introducing it into our day-to-day lives.
Part of the 2017 London Design Festival, Unit Lab collaborated with designers Dean Brown and Kirsi Enkovaara to curate a multi-designer exhibition that examines water. The exhibition Water was hosted in the Bussey Building in Peckham between 19-24 September 2017 and brought together new works by 13 designers.
The 13 designers exhibited span multiple disciplines – including product design, graphics and technology – and were given carte blanche to create “products, materials, installations and experiments that incorporate, exploit, or examine water.” The resulting designs are eclectic and capture humorous, bold and experimental design approaches. Projects include an underwater camera constructed out of household items, a machine that gives water a voice, and a water-generating, philanthropic robot.
The designers exhibiting as part of the show are: Andy Sheen, Dean Brown, Fernando Laposse, Henrik Nieratschke, Interaction Research Studio, James Patmore, Kirsi Enkovaara, Ola Mirecka, Philipp Ronnenberg, Simon Denzel, Six:Thirty x Matteo Loglio, Studio PSK x Karl Toomey and Unit Lab.
The exhibition was publicised by the lovely folk at Zetteler
