La Manufacture / Saint-Étienne International Design Biennial 2013

For the Saint-Étienne International Design Biennial 2013, the Greenhouse association is putting a production chain on display at its site. This pop-up factory has invited artists and designers to propose objects reproduced in plaster and sold exclusively for the duration of the event. This project is more than a simple exhibition. It combines creativity, design, manufacture and distribution, in a laboratory providing an insight into current issues surrounding the production of objects. It also refers to local heritage and the city's special relationship with the manufacturing industry. " We have proposed three free figures, a cliff, a tunnel and a puddle. On the scale of toys, they allow the projection of a miniature world conducive to imagination. "
