SHAPES OF SWEDEN ACQUIRED BY THE CENTRE POMPIDOU
The conceptual solution for car seating: ‘Shapes of Sweden’, is officially acquired by the Design and Industrial Prospective Collection of the Centre Pompidou in January 2017. The object is also selected for the exhibition ‘Printing the World’ that opens on the 15th of March in the Centre Pompidou. The exhibition brings digital technology and creation together. In ‘Shapes of Sweden’ the synergy of these two disciplines resulted in an alternative for car seating with non-scarce materials and more environmentally friendly 3D techniques. Works were selected that explore the implications of the fourth industrial revolution. Other participating designers from the Netherlands are: Aldo Bakker, Joris Laarman, Dirk van der Kooij and Olivier van Herpt.
Opening hours exhibition: 15 March 2017 – 19 June 2017 11:00 – 21:00h Galerie 4 – Centre Pompidou, Paris
