Lines & Curves displays a collection of objects that typically plays with the composition of lines and curves to express a visual balance determining dynamics of playfulness, abstraction, functionality and ornamentation - with contributions by Eser Güngör, Homefolks and Cecilia Sjöholm.

'Lines and curves are essential elements of geometry that shape the visual composition of an object. These elements can add a sense of movement, rhythm and dynamism - as well as abstraction - defining not only the functionality (or non-functionality) of the object, but also its cultural expression that contributes to a surrounding atmosphere.' Designer Eser Güngör investigates the intersection of functionality and aesthetics. He has designed the Munari Collection for this year's London Design Festival, inspired by the Italian designer Bruno Munari and his interest in geometry. Homefolks is a cross-disciplinary design practice founded by Zoe Imber & Romain Parize. Their collection crosses boundaries between design and art, tinged with a playful sophistication reflecting on aesthetics and functionality. Lines & Curves displays parts of their first collection. Cecilia Sjöholm is an artist and architect that explores her relationship to dreams, daydreams, tales and memories through a personal symbolic language of forms an colours, where abstract configurations communicate narratives and where colour and material often represents states of being.
