The PLATE Exhibition (Product Lifetimes And The Environment) explores critical themes related to how long products last in contemporary society. The topic of product longevity is examined in innovative ways through prototypes, objects, artefacts, posters, photographs and films produced by designers, social businesses, artists, researchers, lecturers and students.
Featuring household products, furniture, lighting, fashion, jewellery and artworks, this collection of visual work embraces design for longevity, design for disassembly, repair and reuse, emotionally durable design, repurposing and upcycling, and the need to challenge planned obsolescence and the throwaway society.
The PLATE Exhibition runs alongside the PLATE Conference at Nottingham Trent University (17 – 19 June), the first international conference to address product lifetimes in the context of sustainability.
Exhibitors include: Frank Abbott, Christopher Barr, Paula Barton, Roger Bateman, Kay van Bellen, Sarah Bushell, Anja Claire Crabb, Alan Crisp, Laura Daniels, Katryn Furmston , Callum Field, Calum Gardner , Mark Golab , Jonathan Hamilton, Jan and David Hamilton, Sara Li-Chou Han, Maria Hanson, Bridget Harvey, Julian Hughes, Julia Keyte, Riddhi Lodhia , Angharad Mclaren, Shirley McLauchlan, Tracey McMaster, Tom Moulds , John Newling, Paul Nieuwenhuis, Eleanor Richards , Beata Rozycka, Daniel Scott, Tao Shen, Annalisa Simonella, Andrea Soler , Sarah Turner, Frieda Vanderpump, Nick Williams, Louise Winter, Janet Wootton and Gordon Young.
