For the 2007 Milan Furniture Fair, the British Council and the Design Museum will showcase the work of a new generation of UK-based designers in Great Brits: Ingenious Therapies, an exhibition at Paul Smith’s European headquarters in Milan from 18-23 April 2007.
The exhibition, titled Great Brits: Ingenious Therapies, features the five designers &made , Nadine Jarvis , Peter Marigold , Eelko Moorer and Hiroko Shiratori , and explores the twin imperatives of ingenious function and therapeutic action. Each of the designs in the exhibition is brilliantly contrived and crafted but at the same time addresses a particular human emotion or need, such as – fear, fiction, fantasy; escape; stasis and calm; perpetuity – all of which express a very contemporary take on the need for objects to perform a function.
Curator Libby Sellers said to WGSN: “This seemingly eclectic group are united by their honesty in their approach to design and their desire to find solutions to issues that surpass literal interpretations of functionalism in design.”
