SPACE10 Gallery: Technology and the Furniture of Tomorrow

New and emerging technologies are now at our fingertips. How can these digital technologies unlock future opportunities within something very physical — the objects we keep at home?
About the exhibition
Technologies that were once in the hands of a few are now accessible for many people to use, make and shape their worlds in ways only imagined. How can these digital technologies influence furniture design? That’s what our exhibition at SPACE10 Gallery is here to explore.
The exhibition showcases a research collaboration between SPACE10 and industrial design studio Ransmeier Inc, in which we address the intersection between industrial design and technology. How will digital technologies influence and democratise the design process? Can digital innovation foster a culture of co-creation when it comes to industrial design? Will the furniture around us remain just that — furniture — or will it come to reflect the digital process of its creation?
These are some of the questions we play with in the research exhibited. Indeed: from investigations into computational design to objects designed with reclaimed paper waste and recycled aluminium, the work cultivates a dialogue around how we make, use and imagine the things around us.
Can technology empower us to reimagine or even redefine the objects we keep at home? Come explore with us.
