Plante un bancTristan Caloni, Adrien Mouginot (FR)

Inspired by nature, the minimalist benches by Adrien Mouginot and Tristan Caloni evoke giant young shoots just emerging from the ground. The visitor, like a contemporary Tom Pouce, seated, protected from the overhead rays and the rain, is invited to contemplate the Annecy landscape, to observe the passing of time and… to dream.
The two young designers revisit urban furniture so that it becomes an integral part of the surrounding nature. Their installations consist of a seat and a steel parasol and invite – for a picnic, a reading or a meditation – to take a break under the Annecy sky. Like the sun, everything is painted yellow, the brightest color in the spectrum that attracts attention, inspires and revitalizes. A relaxing break, to better enjoy what surrounds us.

Graduates since 2019 of a master’s degree in global design at the École bleue in Paris, Tristan Caloni and Adrien Mouginot, born in 1994 in France, brought together their know-how and founded, for one year, the collective caloni_mouginot, laboratory of research at the intersection of design, craftsmanship and resourcefulness. In October 2019, they won the Industart prize (International Industrial Design Award). They are winners of the Annecy landscapes 2020 call for young creative projects and are now each pursuing their own project.
