Laps in Time at Experimenta 2009 in Lisbon

Lapse in Time spotlights designers who have chosen the opposite route, uncompromising designers whose work is grounded on highly individual, in-depth thinking and boundary-defying creative elasticity. Pursuing innovation and cutting-edge experimentation at the crossroads of design, cognitive sciences, environmental concerns and intercultural exchange, they strive towards a change in paradigm, one that is also temporal. Though unique in vision and attitude, they share a common trait: that of operating on a wholly different “lapse of time”. They choose slow-evolving projects over consumerist rush, making fewer but better, more relevant, products.

Presented as a “timeline” of works in progress, each designers’ work is singularly expressive as well as subversive in its challenge of standard industrial production. Lapse in Time showcases these strong, distinct design statements and their radical perspective of product design at the junction of art, science, sustainability and socio-cultural insight. It wants to pause for a moment and invite a critical outlook on everyday objects.
