Kim Thome’s design approach finds a balance between installation and objects, working to blend a mixture of graphic elements and optical play in objects and spaces.
His latest project “Reflection Range” is a series of furniture part of on-going investigation exploring “reflection”. Working with geometric shapes, neon colors, reflective and translucent materials, glass and two-way mirror, Kim Thome create optical scenarios and generate relationship to the object to be explored and choreographed by the viewer. Each object change and respond at the viewer’s discretion, as perspective, movement and light affect the experience of every element.
Kim is the founder and curator of the Norwegian Prototypes exhibition, an annual exhibition for new Norwegian furniture design.
Kim Thome studied at Kent Institute of Art and Design before graduating from the Design Products department at the Royal College of Art in 2012. He worked on private commissions and exhibited his work internationally from Mentmore Studios in east London, Angus Hughes Gallery, Shopwork Space, the Norwegian Embassy and Habitat.
