Formwork Series by Industrial Facility
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.

Detractors of minimalism often decry the cold, impersonal nature of the style. However, when executed intelligently, minimalist designs can be surprisingly expressive. The furniture collections of designer Niko Koronis is a case in point.
Founded by furniture designers Josefine Krabbe Munck, Kamma Rosa Schytte, Kasper Kyster and Lærke Ryom, Ukurant showcases experimental products from emerging designers which straddle the border between art and commerce.
