Design by Time explores how the notion of the dynamic passage of time can be embodied within design objects. Examples come from many sectors of the design world: textiles, carpets, vessels, lighting fixtures, fashion, clocks and furniture for example. Some designers embrace natural and mechanical processes. Some translate durational activities into visual forms, such as music and drawing. Design by Time is the first exhibition to identify and bring together works from known and emerging designers whose interest is in expressing the passage of time, a visual expression of life, through the design of objects. Designers on view include: Augur-Loizeau, Atelier Mark Sturkenboom, Maarten Baas, BeatWoven, Sebastian Brajkovic, Hussein Chalayan, Edhv, Front Design, Glithero, Humans since 1982, Marlène Huissoud, William Lamson, Mathieu Lehanneur, Mischer ‘ Traxler, Jacob Olmedo, Diana Scherer, Sebastian Cox Workshop, Studio for Industrial Design, Bartholomäus Traubeck, Nicole Wermers, Jólan van der Wiel and Ryan Mario Yasin.
