Year: 2011

Authorship: Sam Baron (F), Philip Bone (UK), Dean Brown (UK), Elliott Burford (AUSTRALIA), Valentina Carretta (IT), Marie Dessuant (F), Margaux Keller (F)

A knife, train journeys, a jewel, a beer glass and books are just some of the revealing objects that have inspired Objet Préféré, a unique collection of 15 pieces of furniture created following a workshop between young Fabrica designers and personnel – craftsmen, technicians, office staff – of the Grand-Hornu Images cultural centre in Belgium. An intense and rewarding week of exchanges, brainstorming, interviews and photographic sessions on the theme “Favourite Object”, which led to the creation of 15 pieces of furniture that represent a perfect fusion between the creative and design talent of young artist-researchers from the Benetton Group’s communication research centre, and the expert skills of Grand-Hornu technicians.
