Talk departure/MAK: MATALI CRASSET. Root ’n’ Books

Wirtschaftsagentur Wien

3.10.2013, 5pm–6pm

For the MAK exhibition NOMADIC FURNITURE 3.0 New liberated home living? the Paris designer Matali Crasset developed a “tree for living” inspired by the living cubes proposed in the DIY manuals Nomadic Furniture (1973/74) published by James Hennessey and Victor Papanek. She sees her interpretation as “an identity anchor in nomadic times” – a metaphor for a home that provides for imposing “roots” in the age of the digital, the immaterial and the transient. As part of the departure/MAK cooperation design> new strategies, she talks about her own design strategies and reflects on her recently produced work.
