Micro Manifestos


Friday 22 June 2018
9:30am - 3:30pm
DreamSpace Gallery

Furniture design has been used extensively by architects over the years as a means to discover and explore the design language for a bigger picture, such as a building, or a practice. Chairs, tables, daybeds, all among the physical manifestations of, what Salvador Dali would call, the precious juices of creativity.

From Frank Llyod Wright and his Barrel Chair, to Mies van der Rohe’s timeless Barcelona furniture collection, to Zaha Hadid’s Serac Bench and Thomas Heatherwick’s Spun Chair, furniture provides a vehicle for designers to define their creative identity, acting as a miniature manifesto for a larger architectural concept.

The Greenwich Landscape and Architecture Society’s Micro Manifestos exhibition will be an exhibition profiling student designed and crafted pavilion furniture, each piece a micro manifesto for a grander architectural ambition. Although stand-alone pieces, each piece of furniture will aspire to define a larger spatial environment that each piece of furniture could inhabit, both through visual design language and occupation.

The Exhibition will be open to the public over two days, Friday June 22nd and Saturday 23rdof June.
