the revivalists

‘luminaire bergere chair’ by lee broom‘the revivalists’ is an exhibition at CAA in london curated by british design commenter max fraser. the show features a stable of emerging designers and craftspeople all hailing from london. ‘the revivalists’ explores the definitions of craft and design in contemporary culture, showcasing where these fields merge and migrate. the designers on show all represent a growing number of creative people rebelling against the newness of mass production, choosing a more traditional mode of creation. one of the exhibit’s highlights includes the illuminated seating collection by lee broom, which transforms old chairs into sculptural works using lighting. other designer on show include tom dixon, simon hasan and kathleen hills among others.
