Mudam Luxembourg is presenting Soft Fold, a collaboration by Marie Dessuant & Margaux Keller for Fabrica from 11 February - 10 June '12.
Soft Fold Cabane is a temporary space which invites the users to take time out of their day. Duvets, a reading table, a low bench and a lamp compose this hybrid furniture/space. The harmony of colors emphasizes this soft and quiet atmosphere.
The Next Cabane concept has its origins in a found object with very particular properties. It is a foldable wooden structure, found in the darkest corner of an antique market in the north of Scotland.
The origin of this structure is unknown, but we are guessing that it had a previous life as fishing tent. Perhaps it was set up on a riverbank and, with the addition of a canvas, it would shelter fisherman from the elements. Whether this speculation is true or not, we know it is now out of use.
Fabrica’s Designers were inspired to re-vive this amazing structure, examining its particular qualities and re-interpreting them for contemporary contexts. Essentially the structure is a movable room that can be carried from place to place. Next Cabane is about exploring the potential of this idea.
