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.

Four beechwood coat hooks. The set was designed to furnish a hundred studios in a new building operated by the Poitiers Habitat Jeunes association for young workers. The hangers were made from discarded headboard from the former building by a local production facility, and calibrated to leave as little waste as possible. The aim is to bring a sense of comfort and welcome.

Both an object of contemplation and an everyday tool, the project aims to take a fresh look at food preservation and craft(wo)manship. As a vase, the top plate collects wilted petals and leaves and holds the stems. As a bowl, it keeps the fruit and veggies at the right temperature thanks to the thermal inertia of the unglazed earthenware which absorbs and returns the freshness of water. Beyond the use, it invites to compose with and enjoy natural elements.
