5 Conversations, 2012

various, Dimensions Variable, Duration Variable


Five conversations with five specific manufacturers about the gestures, processes and know-how associated with their practice, documented in a book and going in parallel with five cubes produced by the same manufacturers, with the same materials and expertise they discuss. The project has been made in collaboration with: Thonet GmbH (chair furniture, Germany), Chevillotte (pool tables, France), UWL Surfboard (surfboards, France), PA-Tuning (car tuning accessories, France) and Glasbau Hahn (exhibition display cases, Germany).An attempt to blur the boundaries between the production process and the narrative development that produced it, five chapters of a possible reading of design history.
