Product design mogul, Tom Dixon is set to present MULTIPLEX, a unique, multi-sensory department store of tomorrow; set to launch on the 18 September and run until the 15 October, MULTIPLEX coincides with four of the most important events on London’s creative calendar.
Located in the Old Selfridges Hotel in London, the MULTIPLEX will run throughout London Fashion Week, London Design Festival, the BFI London Film Festival and the Frieze art fair. The MULTIPLEX concept will bring together design, technology, fashion, film and interiors under one roof in order to explore how the future of retail may look; designed to ignite all of our human senses – sound, smell, taste and touch.
Along with his multi-disciplinary collaborators, they will create a space full of unique experiences and products, bespoke services and allow visitors interested in design to experience a new kind of retail space that is focussed on design.
MULTIPLEX will house brands including Wallpaper*, Sony, Caesarstone, Deliveroo, Resident, Mindblower.com and Moo.com who will all bring their own ideas and experiences to the event.
One of the brands that we are most excited about seeing is Resident, a brand we’re excited to say that we have recently started working with. Resident is a fast growing design house from New Zealand, who are focussed and committed to providing high quality design led lighting and furniture for commercial and domestic environments; the first company to edit the New Zealand design scene. Resident’s products are not only unique, but practical and demand attention as soon as you enter a room; their lighting designs hold a sense of modern civilisation and can act as a centrepiece to any room, big or small. Some of Form’s favourites are shown to the right.
A relatively new brand to the UK market, Form is excited to announce the arrival of Maxdesign to our portfolio of contemporary furniture and interior accessories.
Maxdesign hails from northern Italy in the province of Treviso and is focussed on the production of highly functional design defined by the “liquid modernity” in which we live. They highlight that the boundaries between public and private are in continuous transformation and are merging into multi-faceted and multi-purpose environments. The company’s constant reinterpretation of the contemporary world and their collaborations with designers including Marco Maran, Studio Hannes Wettstein, Christoph Jenni and Tomás Alonso, has led their approach to design, which is concerned with human well-being in living and work spaces.
Maxdesign first caught our eye at this year’s Stockholm Furniture Fair, with their latest brainchild, the ‘Betty‘ armchair. Much like the rest of the products, Betty’s design plays on volumes and original colour combinations, offering a somewhat playful and emotive reinterpretation of functional furniture, which is still universal enough to blend into any interior. Other pieces to look out for include the best-selling ‘So Happy‘ armchair, the classic wooden ‘Appia‘ chair, the colourful collection of ‘Baba‘ side tables and the innovative ‘Offset‘ table, which can be divided longitudinally into two parts, and integrated with a range of interchangeable accessories, to aid collaborative working.
For further information, pricing or CAD blocks on the Maxdesign collection please contact us by email at email@example.com or call 0151 363 0544.
