Urban furniture for Paris La Defense / 2O19
This project was conceived for the 4th edition of Forme Publique, the urban furniture Biennial organized by Nez Haut in La Défense, Paris. Each of the 3 selected candidates of this competition had to team up with a manufacturer, capable of producing the furniture in an industrial scale. La Défense was built in the 196Oies and is Europe’s largest business district with 2OO.OOO people coming to work every day.
More than simple furniture, each of our 4 pieces offers a subspace, a location in the vast open spaces of La Défense. The Generic emphasizes and enhances a daily meeting situation, naturally adopted by visitors of the site. It progressively lights up when it gets dark. Double Sided offers a multitude of uses, from sit-stand to back-to-back seating. The Banquet’s large table crosses the generic structure which is here equipped with solar panels shades, charging 6 USB hubs. The Flying Carpet’s double platform offers changing perspectives on the environment thanks to its different heights and orientation.
