REFOUND is the first exhibition of PLATform, an initiative created to expose and sell contemporary design pieces to a local and international audience, showing different approaches of design in today’s context.
For this theme, the three curators Raquel Chaves, Alexandra Sebag, Iohanna Nicenboim in collaboration with Agora Collective, chose to combine new pieces of contemporary design with antique furniture exploring the meeting points between the old and the new.
REFOUND // The exhibition
Re-contextualizing the past is a recurring path in design. In Berlin, this phenomenon, in which new forms retain elements from the past, is nowadays not just a visual language, but a state of mind that promotes alternative ways of appreciating objects.
With this as a main point of inspiration, PLATform initiated REFOUND, an exhibition that features pieces from now and yore and the dialogues between them. Stemming from the idea that each piece of furniture has a story to tell, the exhibition brings forth an emotional response between the pieces exhibited and the visitors.
„This endeavor bridges the chronological gap between the old and the new in terms of aesthetic values, production processes and emotional connections“.
List of participating designers:
Sylvia Knüppel, Jan Bernstein, A&RÉ design, Rakso Naibaf, Tom Kühne, Studio BoomWehmeyer, Mokkatanten, Lütz Hüning, Super Équipe, Kippis design, Ines Königsman, Hulger, Adam+Harborth and Annett Gebert.
