Welcome to the London Architecture Diary, your essential guide to architecture exhibitions and events taking place across the city, brought to you by New London Architecture.
During London Design Festival 2019, The Aram Gallery presents Non-Linear, a solo exhibition by Studio Truly Truly (Kate and Joel Booy). The pair, who work across product, lighting, furniture and textile design, were invited by the gallery to think about their creative process. The show will give an insight into how they approach design across different disciplines.
The title Non-Linear refers to how the studio makes connections, joins ideas, and juxtaposes creative techniques to find new solutions. “Our process is not one linear journey from start to finish. We frequently deviate along the way, side-stepping, back-tracking to attack an idea in different ways until we reach a desired destination,” they say.
On show will be eight works that describe their diverse design approach, and reflect recent investigations into abstract and multi-use objects for the future living space. These include a: kitchen island topped in brightly glazed lavastone; a sculptural glass screen; and translucent vessels made of resin. A new glass table will be debuted at the exhibition, and the show will also feature the work of photographer Pim Top, who has responded to a set of starting ‘inspirations’ provided by Studio Truly Truly.
