Today sees the opening of the second Form show at London’s Olympia, which pitches design alongside contemporary art.
According to a spokeswoman for Form, design is playing a major role in the show with more than 50 of the 80 stands representing design talent alongside art, photography and sculpture.
Galleries exhibiting include Artbrokerdesign, Saatchi Online and Greenwich Village Gallery, while work by designers Ross Lovegrove and the Campana brothers, as well as architect Zaha Hadid and artists Tracey Emin, Julian Opie and Howard Hodgkin will be on display.
Banksy’s street art designs will be shown on the Tag Fine Arts stand, while a sub-set of the fair, entitled DNA, sponsors up-and-coming designers and will include 13 stands this year.
On display in the section will be work by Okay Studio, which comprises several recent graduates from the design products course at the Royal College of Art, alongside Spanish traditional designer-maker Arabel Lebrusan and glass designer Stephen Graham.
Form runs from 28 February to 2 March. For more information, see www.form-london.com.
