indeterminate cases
at: la sala vinçcon, barcelona
from: october 16th to november 15th, 2008

‘indeterminate cases’ is an exhibition of ralph ball and maxine naylor, authors of the book ‘form follows idea’. ball and naylor use design to communicate ideas about design itself, along with using the potential of the design process to express themes of their company studioball. expanding on the visual vocabulary from their book, the show will consist of a display of typically normal chairs which have been redesigned to question our relationship with concepts of utility, familiarity, obsolescence, sustainability and value.
