The first +Halle’s Annual Briefing, Dwelling, centers on the deficit of moments to oneself in public spaces, and the human experience of seeking those moments out in the most public of places.

The first of these collections is Levels, by Form Us With Love, a bench system combining three heights and three lengths to create subtle divisions between people.

By sitting at different heights, different directions, and distances from one another, Levels can break the monotony of a space.

Out of Sight

“Glass ceiling” is a term used to describe the invisible barrier that keeps a given demographic from rising beyond a certain level within a hierarchy. The “Out of Sight” project reflects on gender inequality within the professional world, where women not only have lower salaries than their male counterparts, but also have fewe opportunities to progress in their careers. These three interactive objects invite the participants to manipulate them in a certain way, revealing invisible dysfunctionalities - a physical reinterpretation of the glass ceiling concept.

Sisters was a contemporary art and design exhibition that showcased and celebrated female perspectives, held on the 8th of Marth 2019. Together with Alejandra Perini, the project Out of Sight was created exclusively for the show. Curated by Sanna Völker for Ox Poblenou.

Objectar el Món

Objectar el Món is an event based around the role of designers in tackling the key problem of our time: the need to rethink ways of coexistence between human and non-human forms of life with the goal of ensuring their – and our – survival.

To this end, we invited product design professionals to bring an object that, in their opinion, meets the material, functional, methodological, consumption or production characteristics needed in order to cease the destruction of the environment, or even initiate processes to restore it. All the objects were exhibited to form a heterogeneous landscape that gives testimony to the diversity of problems we face, and also, the variety of positions we have to face them. A group of experts from different fields guided us through this landscape to broaden the common perspectives of the design scene on issues related to ecology.

Atal Collection

Atal is a sequential oak wood shell chair series made for different types of comfort, designed by Form Us With Love in collaboration with Basque wood crafting expert, Alki. 

Atal is a five-chair collection starting from an A shaped shell and building onwards, one step at a time, adding wooden layers of increased comfort. Designed to follow the characteristics of contemporary chair typologies, the add-on strategy for each chair is material-driven; celebrating tactility and building on Alki’s artisanal and industrial expertise.

Prototypa X Mini

Prototypa Workshops are a very participatory, hands-on events, where prototyping is used as a tool for creativity. The aim of the Workshops is to foster a culture of innovation, by structuring the creative proces around the act of prototyping.

Through prototyping, links are built among the participants;  it also works as a briefing tool—injecting information to inspire and challenge the status quo; and overall, it is used to test ideas and evaluate the results.

In this session during Madrid Design Festival for Mini, together with Aidi and Lia Forslund, Form Us With Love challenged the way drinking water is consumed, with the ambition of reducing plastic waste and promoting the use of water fountains in Madrid.
