The Innovation Centre is pleased to announce that Hiberform, a graduate of the CEIM Programme launched a new brand of Irish Designed and Manufactured, Spatial Division and Furniture Products on the 1st of December.
Hiberform is a new collection of screens, sculptural structures and furniture products designed for use in offices, hospitality, retail and domestic spaces.
These designs have been created for contemporary spaces, where clean lines, functional and colourful structures are required to give vibrancy to the interior.
Leo Scarff has been a product designer for over twenty years, studying and working in Scandinavia before setting up his own design studio in Dublin in 1997. He has been fascinated by natural and man made structures for many years and developed the Hiberform collection from his research in this area. The idea for the collection originated more than 2 years ago when Leo began developing a series of sculptural structures from his research in natural form and Geodesics. The nature of these structures required computer navigated router and laser cutting processes to produce the components. However, having recently relocated to the creative hub of north west Ireland – Manorhamilton, Co.Leitrim it was necessary to locate several high tech local manufacturers with the capabilities in these areas.
A new production network was established in 2009 and Leo began prototyping his ideas last year which culminated in a residency at the Leitrim Sculpture Centre, followed by the ‘Futurescapes’ exhibition at the centre in May of this year. Many of the ideas for the Hiberform collection came from the sculptural works in this show and we are now delighted to officially launch Hiberform. We have a web site with information on all the products including downloadable PDF files taken from our catalog which is available by post by contacting us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
