Prototypa is a platform founded in 2017 by Swedish Design studio Form Us With Love, an ongoing conversation that nurtures the relationship between industry and creatives through exploring one of the most distinctive yet imaginative parts of the design process—prototyping. It is an articulation of where design is heading, a prototyping forum, peeking into the making process of the yet to be finished—revealing the instant, the iterative and the reactionary formulas used in making great design. The accumulation and evaluation of paper cuts, metal frames, cardboard shapes and 3D prints acting as platforms for communication, inevitable back and forths, negotiations, compromises and differences in opinion. Providing physical ideations from the industry—as opposed to finished products—unfolds a series of elevated performances, involving chance, accidents and intuition as well as, quality control, systems and methods of future advancement. The clash between the craft and machine become a central theme in the exhibition, as the works on display illustrate a significant shift towards an almost artful intersection.
