Southern Lines and Northern Lights presents work by a selection of talented designers. Meticulous prototypes exemplify refined craftsmanship, production pieces echo the marks of the maker, one-off creations celebrate conviction of focus. The exhibition explores bright ideas and the insightful understanding of materials needed to illuminate them. Southern Lines and Northern Lights considers the significance of materials to different design practices and the integrity of performance of materials in reproduction. It explores design in production and the notion of reproducing by hand.
