FORM , London’s FIRST modern+contemporary / art + design EXHIBITION
“Form is a mystery that defies description but brings people pleasure” Alvar Aalto
LONDON’S FIRST MODERN + CONTEMPORARY ART + DESIGN EXHIBITION
An opportunity to see, buy and celebrate 20th and 21st century style.
FORM London, the first of its kind, is a new exhibition bringing together modern and contemporary art, design, photography, ceramics, sculpture and jewellery to create a dynamic showcase.
FORM invites you to see and buy unique elements for a modern home – pieces you love that can become the investments of the future.
Whether you are a new or established collector, or an enthusiast looking to increase your knowledge, over 100 vetted exhibitors will provide a unique and accessible opportunity for you to find the best modern and contemporary work.
The focal point of the show is the stylish central bar area, an evolving space where visitors can meet and interact and which features a unique selling exhibition of the work of American furniture designer Karl Springer, focusing on bronze and lizard skin pieces from the early 1970’s. This collection comes from Paul Smith’s furniture shop, 9 Albemarle Street.
“I have always admired the work of Karl Springer and am really excited that we will be presenting and selling his work at FORM.” Paul Smith
Creative Director of FORM Russell Sage says of his vision for this exhibition: “FORM presents a unique opportunity to acquire beautifully designed objects and art from the last century as well as limited edition work from the great designers practising today. This will be the only opportunity in the UK this year to see renowned galleries and designers alongside each other. Not to be missed.”
