Objectar el Món
2019

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.

Participants: Adolfo Abejón, Alejandra Perini, Angel Valiente Studio for Design, Antoni Arola, Aya Ulan, Boaz Katz, Emiliana Design Studio, Goula / Figuera Studio, Guillem Ferran, Ibai Velilla, Isaac Piñeiro, Javier Mariscal, Jordi Canudas, Julen Ussia, Jeannette Altherr (Lievore + Altherr Désile Park), Marta Ayala Herrera, Martín Azúa, Max Enrich, Max Milà Serra, Nahtrang Studio, Nutcreatives, Oblicuas, Oriol Gener, Pablo Santos, Raquel Llaberia, Sanna Völker, Sebastian Alberdi and Stefano Colli.

Atal Collection
2019

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
2019

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.

Through the partnership with +Halle, Form Us With Love continues to design on the range level, expanding the Nest series to cover the public space.

The System Table is designed with the purpose of serving working needs in public settings and throughout the day we will discuss how public space can better inform workspaces to become more constructive, meaningful and purpose-led.

The Nest Easy Sofa is an anchoring piece in a growing series of upholstered sofas and chairs, serves informal meeting spaces with an accessible and sheltering beacon in any space.

Wood: Design for Circularity
2018

We live in a world where sustainability is not anymore an option. It is a need. A lot has to change in the way we produce, consume and dispose stuff. But how can designers, with small means, influence the decisions of the producers, consumers and even generate real impact in policy?

The workshop aims to reflect on the parameters that matter the most when designing for circularity, from production to disposability, making emphasis on the use and consumption of an object.

Workshop held at Elisava during the 19th Creative Marathon.
