5pm is a furniture collection designed for Aubier studio, a manufacturing workshop committed to craft wooden object locally and virtuously. The collection has been thought in dialogue with Aubier's know-how after visiting the forests and sawmills around the workshop.
The advised time to use the lounge chair and armchair is 5pm, the right time to enjoy a cup of tea and wait quietly for the aperitivo.

Piece of outdoor furniture designed for the schoolyard of the village of Verrières (Nouvelle-Aquitaine, France).

Inspired by the local industrial and natural landscape, the bench's use changes according to the weather: on rainy days, it collects water, creating a water mirror reflecting the environment. In summer, it provides a place to sit in the shade.

The project was developed over six months of research at the school↗, including workshops with the children and discussions with the teachers which were crucial in the development of the bench.
