The Matter of Things in main home furnishings art  Category

Beckmans College of Design unveiled a new project this past week at the 2011 Stockholm Furniture Fair called The Matter of Things. A collection of pieces from 13 graduating Beckmans students worked together with second-year students in Advertising and Graphic Design to create the project with the goal to “let ideas, research and process be in focus.”

The exhibition pieces visually display the research done in the creation of each product and the way in which the object and materials interact, as well as how we communicate with the object.

The Advertising and Graphic Design students developed the concept of communication, print, exhibition design, digital communication and a documentary.

Here is a sampling of some of the pieces that were part of the exhibition:
