The exhibition, which is also being held in collaboration with Danish textiles company Kvadrat, is set to provide insight into how a new piece of furniture is designed and made, through four exhibits based on MARK’s products.
Among them is this new 'Bosco II' sofa and bench from British designer (and interestingly, Oxford physics graduate) Gala Wright, whose work ably demonstrates the skills of the craftsmen that make fine wooden furniture.
Films and photographs, plus a tower of materials, showing the many natural and man-made materials that go into a modern sofa, where these come from, how they are processed, and how sustainable they are, will all be on show.
Bosco isn't MARK's the only new piece which will be at the event; Tomoko Azumi’s 'Verso' chair will additionally be on display; shown through every step of the design process from the original briefing of the designer, through sketches and tiny scale models to the first production models; essentially all the thinking that goes into every detail.
Plus, 'Dylan Freeth’s Iso table will be there as an example of the collaborative nature of design – the web of conversations and connections woven through the development of each new product.
