Formwork Series by Industrial Facility

February 25, 2016

Function Defines Form

Function coincides beautifully with form in this minimalist and elegant series of desk accessories designed by Industrial Facility for Herman Miller.  The range includes cups, trays, boxes and stands made with ABS plastic with silicone bases which can be stacked and combined with each other to suit different storage requirements.  We can't think of a more stylish way to organise our desktops.

The Formwork Series by Industrial Facility is on show as part of the Design Triennial at the Cooper Hewitt, the leading museum for historic and contemporary design in the US.  In this fifth edition, the Design Triennial showcases creations of 63 designers from around the world in an exploration of 7 notions of beauty: extravagant, intricate, ethereal, transgressive, transformative, emergent, and elemental.  This diversity not only reinforces the maxim that beauty is in the eye of the beholder but is also a reminder of how good design can inspire ideas, communicate stories and evoke the deep emotional responses which constitute beauty.

The Design Triennial exhibition is on display at the Cooper Hewitt Museum until 21 August 2016.

For slick and stylish storage solutions look no further than the Cloud Cabinet by Frederik Roije.  The Konnex modular shelves is also very cleverly designed and super sleek.

We love the Mr Ed table light from Functionals for its simple form and functionality.  The Orbit wall light from LZF looks very discrete and would suit minimalist spaces well.

The aHead bluetooth headsets from Kreafunk are the epitome of minimalist cool, whilst the Desktructure desk organiser from Seletti is functional and fun too.
