Industrial & Product Design
Lighting up the central space in Coal Drops Yard, King’s Cross welcome’s the return of the estate’s ever-popular installation ‘Space Frames’. This clever reusable design by Studio Mieker Meijer has been turned into an Illuminated Garden for the festival, housing a fountain of ideas on circular design; Super Nature TV.
Super Nature TV is a compilation film from Modern Design Review. It features a curation of found films - made by designers, institutions and brands such as; Formafantasma, Atelier Luma, Kengo Kuma, Christien Meindertsma and Mary Mattingley - that each tell a story related to circularity, reuse and sustainable systems. Together, this rich tapestry of information gives an insight into the many different solutions and approaches currently being explored, cogitated and implemented by the international design community in an effort to create lasting change. Super Nature TV is itself an exercise in recycling and reuse; making use of existing content rather than pointlessly recreating it, and in a time when travel and public gatherings continue to be difficult, the film offers an alternative to the traditional design week talk format; Super Nature TV brings together the most interesting voices on circularity in an accessible digital format. The film can also be viewed online throughout LDF. The Space Frames are created by Netherlands-based industrial designers Studio Mieke Meijer. Designed to be reused and re-thought time and again, this will be their third reinvention, this time as a playful garden.
