    in the detachable container.
    The Cutlery Set comprises a compact container designed around the shape
    of the cutlery (spoon, fork and knife) that easily fits inside a handbag.

    Date: 23 rd March – 13th June 2010.
    Where The Design Museum Tank.

    Final_Press for Web 2

    We are proud to announce that FaddaSantos has been commissioned by The Design Museum to design a site-specific installation for the Tank space.
    Elements of Production is a site-specific installation displaying the aesthetic qualities of a household product and the hidden technical elements of its mass manufacturing process. Presenting the Gemme range displayed as 20 abstract place settings on an oversized dining table, the weight of the granules in the table correlates to the material used to manufacture the number of bowls on show.
    The table contains polymer granules inserted within the polycarbonate sheets. The polymer SAN has excellent light emission characteristics and resembles glass beads. This raw material is injection-moulded to create the Gemme set, comprising of four-sized bowls, available in five colours. The injection-moulding machine is represented in a graphic vinyl of 4 meters length.
    Materials and scale belonging to the industrial production are juxtaposed to those of the domestic environment. By creating an abstract environment linking manufacturing and consumption, the installation reveals the hidden technical aspects of the product design process.

    The exhibition is kindly sponsored by Guzzini/Italy.

    Curator: Margaret Cubbage.
