• Scenes Unseen - Takram Test Bed

Pennington, Miles, 2016, Show, Exhibition or Event, Scenes Unseen - Takram Test Bed

Abstract or Description:

Aiming to inspire curiosity and conversation about design methods, practices and approaches, Takram presents a playful blend of theatre and test lab that invites participation, interaction and speculation. This experimental installation features commercial and conceptual projects. Before products reach the market they must endure rigorous testing procedures; pushed to near breaking point, bent into different forms, stripped of material to a state of extreme vulnerability.

At TENT LONDON (London Design Festival), Takram welcomed visitors to Scenes Unseen, an experimental test lab where we challenge assumptions and invite speculation about product conventions, functional narratives, and the meaning of purpose. A mix of commercial and original projects – product, big data, VR, experimental and concept design – were displayed and tested throughout the installation as product prototypes, interactive experiments, simulations and video studies.
