Determined to make a memorable first impression, product design studio Evie Group is teaming up with kikki.K to create an installation at SID’s Galleria space. Working with this year’s The Project theme of ‘Process’, the inspiration behind the stand’s concept is to tell a story and provide an insight into the designer’s mind. The key idea is “2D to 3D: From paper to product” and aims to reflect the simplicity of Scandinavian design and Evie Group’s aesthetic, in a striking yet elegant installation.

Without giving too much away, the concept is of a geometric pattern wall installation, inspired by paper sketch models and rapid prototypes. This will transition from a flat paper surface into a moulded 3D form that creates a wave across the wall’s surface. Kikki-K products including sketch journals, models and prototypes will populate the display, giving an insight to the creative process.

Evie Group will also present a range of new products at the event; the ‘Oliver’ tray tables and planters inspired by traditional butler tray tables and the ‘Moo’ stool and coat rack (by Kenan Wang, the first ‘Evie Presents’ designer), inspired by traditional Chinese furniture.
