Studio Glithero is focusing on the moment of creation, on those steps that lead up to the moment when a product is finished or when it just starts to exist.
This workshop is about timing, choreography and spectacle. It is about shifting the focus away from the end product and towards the process and moment of creation.
Students will be set a special challenge that encourages them to think less about the final destination and instead explore the beautiful and fantastical ways of making the journey from A to B.
Glithero are British designer Tim Simpson and Dutch designer Sarah van Gameren, who met and studied at the Royal College of Art. From their studio in London they create product, furniture, and time-based installations that give birth to unique and wonderful products. The work is presented in a broad spectrum of media, but follows a consistent conceptual path; to capture and present the beauty in the moment things are made.
In the past year Glithero has presented solo shows in London, Paris and Rotterdam, as well as exhibitions in Milan, Berlin and Basel. and in 2011 the studio has been shortlisted for the Brit Insurance Award and the Dutch Design Awards.
