During Clerkenwell Design Week, May 22nd - 24th 2012, the new contemporary design company
Singularité will present the Bay Collection" by Marie Dessuant at the House of Detention.
About the Colletion:
Somewhere between Brittany and Rimini, ‘The Bay’ is a product and furniture collection, the personal interpretation of a seaside resort’s collective memory.
Not aiming for a meaning nor a concept but on the contrary aiming for interstices free to appropriation, The Bay starts off with a research influenced by memories of touch such as the salt crackling on the skin, and by memories of states of mind like the strange distance holidays induce during the dense year of hard work.
These objects with large scope of evocations may remind in the distance and blur, nature shaped by mankind, a widely controlled landscape, though imbued of a feeling of freedom, of escape. The ideas of horizon and vastness interfering with the objects, suggest another perception of the domestic landscape. The vain attempt of restoring vague memories, directs the collection in a sort of several times’ dimension, mixing suspended times, past moments, and sweet daydreaming with an off-season taste.
