The third edition of the LFA Showroom Showcase competition sees a series of innovative installations exploring the theme of reuse by emerging architects and designers displayed in some of London’s leading design showrooms. The international showrooms, including Gaggenau, VitrA Bathrooms and Ideal Standard are all hosting the designs throughout the month of June 2023.
TIME is a series of handmade functional art objects stacked vertically on display at Gaggenau London, including strategic glimpses, considering the viewers’ awareness of space and time in the showroom, in the city, or around the world. With the clocks set to global time zones and comprising of plaster, a common material used in buildings, familiarity is generated, highlighting the possibilities of architecture connecting us all.
TIME is by Raphaé Memon and Sikander Pervez for Gaggenau. Raphaé Memon is a British architect and award-winning designer, working on projects from the scale of civic public events and buildings to stage sets and sculpture. He studied Architecture at The Bartlett UCL and Manchester School of Architecture, and his projects explore the development of architectural space from the lens of a stage designer, and vice versa. Sikander Pervez is a British artist working in the medium of sculpture and installation. Sikander read Fine Art at Staffordshire University, where his interests from a young age in product design and exposure to his Father’s electrical engineering factory fuelled the exploration of the relationship between human beings and inanimate objects from the domestic realm.
