We will be flying to Dubai Design Week to present our new project 'Hatch' at the exhibition 'Light Shelter' organised by Istituto Europeo di Design - IED alumni.
“sustainability”, “lightness” ,“fragility” are the three concepts after in-depth analysis and research, have found a form and dimension in “Light Shelters” , the exhibition displaying 2 projects by IED Alumni at Dubai Design Week 2021, taking place from November 8th to 12th.
HATCH by Yellowdot Design choose the light and fragility of an egg shell. It is a ceiling pendant light created from eggshells collected from six weeks of egg consumption. The extremely thin eggshell diffuser is arranged carefully by hand and bonded with bio-based resin. Assembled with a craftsman’s attitude, it becomes a new material for creating luminous effects.
ASSEMBLAGE 2.0 by Andra Handric takes us into the world of fashion and textile design. An installation that highlights the protection-fragility binomial of this moment to make us reflect on ourselves as well.
“The cloth is a shelter, a protective layer under which mystery regains value through countless ways of interaction with the wearer. We are seeking to challenge the boundaries between the piece of clothing as a disposable object and a piece of art”.
IED Istituto Europeo di Design Milano was where the two founders of Yellowdot - Bodin & Dilara met in 2013 while pursuing their studies in Masters of Product Design.
Since their meeting at the Istituto Europeo di Design in Milan, their ability to combine their diverse backgrounds and skills has enabled Yellowdot to work coherently across multiple disciplines and develop its own distinctive expression and to translate meticulous and fantastical design ideas to the context of production.
