Located in the creative heart of East London, the London Design Fair is a four-day industry event that brings together 550 exhibitors from 36 countries, including; independent designers, established brands, international country pavilions, features and exhibitions.
Looking ahead to one of the most exciting events in the Selvedge calendar, we have had a sneak peek at some of the exhibitors who will be displaying their designs at LDF. Last week, Studio Ro Smit featured on the blog. This week, we had a look at another Dutch design house that will take part in the 'Dutch Stuff' exhibition at LDF.
Rudi Boiten and Mireille Burger met at the Design Academy in the Netherlands. After graduating in 2014, the duo founded their collective studio, plott, in the design capital Eindhoven. Plott focuses on intrinsic qualities of materials and Boiten and Burger both enjoy testing the limits and potentialities of materials when creating their innovative designs. They work together but each has their role: Boiten is the "observer", creating new making techniques that are both technical and tactile. Meanwhile, Burger concentrates on the process of creating and works with colour, material and detail.
plott designs are instantly recognisable due to their digitally printed geometric patterns and surfaces - a product of Boiten and Burger's continuous experimentation. The duo likes to convert traditional techniques, such as stitching, weaving, and knitting, into contemporary design, using modern technologies developed and tweaked by Boiten.
See plott at the London Design Fair from 20 - 23 October at the Truman Brewery, London, UK.
