a social movement is slowly changing the way we think and live

Dates: MAY/JUNE 2008
THE REVOLUTION IS SET - bring it to the table. The subject of spring's new show stems from 'the table' as a place where we sit, eat, discuss. The need to re-adjust and focus towards a more enjoyable, clean and responsible way of living is best represented by the philosophy behind projects as such as slow food and how it reflects a collective, contemporary thinking that can be applied to other disciplines. This is the slow revolution! Through curation, Anna Cosentino and Steve Butcher of spring would like to 'bring to the table' results of successful collaborations; examples of design that gives back; show the importance of artisanal skills and their application in design and art; and ultimately the new interpretation(s) of luxury.
Featured in the show are - Inna Alesina; Artecnica Design With Conscience; Sandra Bautista; Deborah Bowness; Jane D'Arensbourg; Prisca Fey; Gesine Hackenberg; iBride; Katya Marritz; Justin Richel; Joey Roth; Richard Saja; Verena Schreppel and Patrick Weder.

BRING IT TO THE TABLE is an assignment that will be introduced during ICFF. Anna Cosentino and Steve Butcher of spring in collaboration with co-curators Natasha Chetiyawardana and Michael McDevitt has reserved the table for a group of designers, artists, art directors and thinkers, who have been invited to bring something to the table to provoke thought/discussion/action. Among them - Ralph Ball; Davide Cantoni; Will Carey; Peter Cole; Heather Cox; Cecilie Egeberg; Daisy Ginsberg; Rich Greco; Eva Kellenberg; Otis Kriegel; Michael McGinn; Maxine Naylor; Stijn Ossevoort; Jessica Peterson; Douglas Riccardi; Zoe Sheehan Saldańa, Vicky Simmons; Brett Snyder.
