Onyx sofa at the Grand Hornu museum
The onyx sofa exhibits at the Grand Hornu museum, for The Futur archaïque exhibition, from January 25 to April 19 2015.
This exhibition presents the connection, from the perspective of design, that currently exists between the future and the past, the archaic – in the sense of returning to fundamental principles, arkhē in Greek means beginning. The exhibition highlights how designers create objects that reveal our roots.
A refreshing exhibition that explores the reappearance of these “archaic” forms in design, also implicit in this project is a sociological insight into these emerging but essential desires to reconnect with our roots.
