From design to the exhibition – Today, it is essential to reassert the bridges that link decorative arts and visual arts, and therefore to remember the importance of know-how and of the work of art as a testimony of an era and of a thought. This year’s exhibition on design makes us look at furniture from many different and prospective angles. matali fills space with creations which allow us to turn our everyday environment into a dynamic process, and offer solutions to a life scenario in the twinkling of an eye. These pieces of furniture are telling a story with many possible outcomes, and our static interiors, with their monolithic tables, chairs and desks, become active. matali crasset redefines comfort and strips the object of its statutory functions to make us active… hyperactive!
