Plants out of place

10th September 2015

With London Design Festival looming it seems that its all about flowers, flaura and fauna.

Designers are embracing the wonders of nature and are owning the discourse between science and nature.

Plants out of Place is an exhibition that represents the zeitgeist of hidden plants and collates the works of designers who are exploring the potential of plants in new and unexpected ways.

The exhibition is celebrates the life of misunderstood plants and weeds and aims to educate and expose us to lost stories about the wonders of these plants.

Through a series of workshops they also aim to engage the public with the value of wild plants, the over looked and the not so beautiful to see how we may utilise them in new ways through design, synthetic biology, hacking or enhancing.

A collective of brilliant designers and thinkers some of the work on show is from Studio Drift, Mariah Wright, Studio Aikieu and Akexandara Stuck.

The exhibition is on from the 18th-22nd September
