Bisley, in partnership with design magazine Dirty Furniture, will bring a taste of its recent Matter of Fact exhibition to Dubai Design Week debuting the contribution from local talent Talin Hazbar.
The full exhibition was launched at Clerkenwell Design Week this year and explores how human storage needs have changed in contemporary times and in the age of digital media.
The exhibition features objects chosen by a selection of internationally renowned designers, thinkers, and emerging studios including Sam Jacob, Jurgen Bey, Parsons & Charlesworth, Tobias Revell, Birgit Severin, Aric Chen, Jo Anne Butler, Théophile Blandet, as well as Talin Hazbar.
Each contributor was asked to put forward an object they think encapsulates 2018. Displayed in specially designed cabinets engineered and manufactured at Bisley’s factory, the objects within were chosen to capture the present day. Inspired by time capsules, the conceptual cabinets themselves have been designed as a piece of furniture for the home, in which households of the future will place their most cherished objects, keeping them safe for future generations to enjoy.
Talin Hazbar, the main contributor for the Dubai exhibition, is based in the UAE and works across architecture, art and design inspired by the materiality and landscape of the desert. She has exhibited at the Louvre Abu Dhabi, Dubai Design Week, Design Days Dubai and took part in the Rhode Island School of Design’s Emerging Artists Fellowship programme in 2015.
