Foster + Partners' Craft + Manufacture: Industrial Design exhibition is currently on display at The Aram Gallery in London. It is the firm’s first exhibition dedicated to the industrial design work they have created over the past fifty years. It shows how “the science, art, and craft of making things” has been the foundation of the firm, and how the “collaborative nature of the design team pioneered by Norman Foster” has been translated into their architectural practice.

The exhibition looks at the industrial design team's contributions to their architectural projects, including seating at the Cathay Pacific Lounge at the Hong Kong Airport, and furniture designed for the Maggie’s Cancer Center in Manchester.

The exhibition contains a variety of projects including designs for chairs, tables, shelving units, and even wind turbines, to name a few. Through these objects, viewers are able to understand how the practice believes in the seamless transition between structure and form at a range of scales.

“I have always had a very close relationship with the making of things – I find it impossible to separate the process of design from the process of making," Norman Foster, Chairman and Founder of Foster + Partners, said in a press release. "The diversity of the practice’s work is a logical outcome of the way we have evolved through our core activity of designing buildings. For me, the constant theme that flows through our work is the fusion of the humanistic and poetic dimensions of an object, and the technical precision of industry – more succinctly craft and manufacture.”

 The exhibition will run until July 2.
