NEOTENIC DESIGN EXHIBITION








In January 2018, Jumbo developed a brief for a temporary design exhibition showcasing recent work from a variety of international furniture and lighting designers. The proposed objects were selected for their use of neoteny—the exaggeration of childlike features. These works are variously zoomorphic, cute, and pudgy.  Each is conceived as an object of affection—a design crafted specifically to elicit an emotional response in the viewer.
