Comissioned lamp design for ‘A Slow Parade’    .2020

A Slow Parade is a virtual design show featuring the work of 22 designers. Berry Dijkstra curated a spatial composition in which furniture, design items, and objects are presented, stacked, and carefully arranged into a sculptural installation that is independent of functionality. The film, directed by From Form and shot on 16mm, combines the world of contemporary design with classic cinema, and brings an ode to the role of title design in film, with an eerie soundtrack scored by Anne Müller and Ben Lukas Boysen.

Due to covid19 and inspired by online fashion shows (Casablanca, Paris) Berry came up with the idea of putting on a show in the safety of his own home. His own Pastoe collection forges the core of the installation and Berry enriched the composition with works by 22 designers. The result is a tactile furniture installation with a wide range of objects and furniture a vivid color palette, different materials, and shapes that together form a strong visual image.
