GOODD and Parallel Projects organized the exhibition organized by : A new view on lightness .”Airmail” features different experiments, interpretations, and developments on the idea of lightness in its broader meaning.
A divers exhibition with new work from various designers. Also available will be our new range of lighting Reposed Light. Airmail is an exhibition with new objects dealing with the idea of weight, or rather the absence of it, in design. Lightness has been often used to measure progress in society (e.g. aircrafts or architectural structures.), and its relation with mobility is as old as mankind. A relation that recently is leading to mobile devices where the convergence of functions suggest that we could, one day, have function without matter.
Probably as a reaction to that, there is being an increase in the production of heavily crafted objects and the revival of pattern and decoration. Between this progress-based idea of doing more with less, and the heavily handcrafted pieces “Airmail” finds its place.
