Pli Public Workshop: 7 extraordinary projects of upcoming young talents

For the first time, the organization and publisher of its own creative magazine Pli and its founder Christopher Dessus, présentent le Pli Public Workshop. After publishing a significant number of young designers and architects, Pli is now tackling the issue of production and is setting up a creative assistance program around a project for students still in training or young graduates.

 

Supervised by a jury of experts including great personalities from architecture, design, but also from other artistic disciplines, that the participants of the Pli Public Workshop have created a group exhibition on theObsessiontheme. By means of these issues, Pli sought to answer two questions through all this promising work: Comment investir significativement à travers l’architecture et le design ces systèmes obsessionnels? Comment la jeune création s’approprie-t-elle ce sujet? Discover the 7 works that have particularly affected us.

 

 ➡ Exhibition on view at the Pavillon de l'Arsenal in Paris, jusqu’au 12 janvier 2020.

 

 

Pli Public Workshop 2019

Space designer Halah Al Juhaishi went in search of her childhood memories through her project ru-iinhiar. Indeed, of Iraqi origin, it was during a recent stay in her native country that she rediscovered her culture, unfortunately marked by ruined architecture. It is through an initiatory work both of memory and material that she has built a decor, as a witness and a bridge between the country where she was born and her current life. The more we progress in this architecture, the more the notion of ruin is felt and takes over from our feelings. Smart project.

Döppel Studio s’est attaqué à l’obsession des humains pour eux-mêmes dans le cadre de ce Pli Public Workshop. Inspired by the omnipresence of selfies and the need to stage oneself can have, the designers have diverted a gym environment, where everyone likes to take pictures, thus giving the visitor an opportunity to find himself behind closed doors, somewhere in between desire and repulsion. The matière réfléchissante déforme, floute, et conduit à la confusion d’un corps dans un espace.

Les designers travaillent régulièrement autour du motif de la grille, et c’est naturellement qu’il l’ont fait évoluer en obsession lors du workshop. C’est ainsi que Pauline Bailey et Hugo Poirier présentent Variations autour de la grille et testent les limites entre architecture, sculpture et objet grâce à elle, dans une série d’expérimentations poétiques mêlant à la fois métal, bois, pierre et délicats végétaux. In this work, the grid is both a reference point and a constraint, their basic work but also their purpose.A crush!

The trio composed of studio sätel and Julienne Richard has joined forces during the Pli Public Workshop and reinvents the principle of the Golden Ratio, choosing to refer entirely to the body of Léonor, imaginary muse, as a unit of measurement. Indeed, each element created here has as measures those of the muse: the glasses the circumference of her mouth, the ceramic plates the size of her hands and the lamp has a foot equal to the circumference of her neck and the width of her arms. A precise and singular work linking human measurements and creation, initiating a reflection on a possible normality and generality of this principle. Intéressant.

 

 

Bertrand Rougier et François Sabourin

Quebec architects Bertrand Rougier and François Sabourin se sont attachés à l’univers de la chasse, et l’obsession du camouflage parfait. Ainsi, leur projet Verdures explores man's desire to blend into nature, to such an extent that he has developed an art... With the help of a company specialized in this field in the United States, the duo has created a garment, but also a shelter or tapestry specially adapted to the flore parisienne to blend in. A nod to medieval tapestries but also to hunters, Bertrand and François present here a very complete work, for which we can easily imagine an evolution.

Et voici notre deuxième coup de coeur de cette édition du Pli Public Workshop: the work of the talented design students Antoine Behaghel et Alexis Foiny, and their installation Tubulure. En lien direct avec le design expérimental et sculptural that we are promoting, the designers have focused on creating a new standard of furniture, far from mass production, and redefining, for our great pleasure, what today's and tomorrow's furniture could/should look like.

 

Grâce à un simple tube de ventilation enduit, peint et détourné, le projet Tubulure donne lieu à plusieurs expérimentations inédites et quasi-primitives d’objets, mobiliers et luminaires qui s’inscrivent dans le mouvement actuel du design contemporain et sa volonté de se lier une fois pour toute à l’art. Beau projet et jeunes talents à suivre de près!

 

 

Rebecca Chipkin et Jack Swanson

 

Pli Public Workshop 2019, Rebecca Chipkin and Jack Swanson, Fixation

Cet incroyable objet-sculpture réalisé par Rebecca Chipkin, a work restorer and Jack Swanson, architect, explore their common obsession with tidying up the mess in their work with Fixation, et le mince équilibre entre objet fixe et mouvant. En s’inspirant du principe des folies architecturales, le duo explique qu’il est contemplatif de « l’état futur des objets », et les considère à la fois statiques et exprimant la notion de changement dans le temps. Cet équilibre architectural de formes élémentaires finds its beauty in the present moment, but also in its evolution, possibly the state of decay in which it is possible that it ends...
