Map Table film
Edward, Jay and Vitra have commissioned animation director Celyn, from Nexus, to produce a stunning animated film, showcasing their product the Map Table. The film beautifully illustrates - using hand drawn 2D animation - the functionality and simplicity of the product.
‘In The Making’ exhibition at Design Museum, London
Opening soon, this exhibition, curated by Edward and Jay, captures over twenty objects mid-manufacture, putting the aesthetic of the unfinished centre stage. Varying from a pencil to a football boot, a surprising range of objects have been chosen to be exhibited in an unfinished state, celebrating the intriguing beauty of the production process. The objects have been selected because they each have an unexpected quality about them in those moments before they assume their final, recognisable form. 22 January - 4 May 2014.
