DESIGNER OF THE YEAR 2022
The designer of the year is announced every year at the French exposition. The distinction has previously been given to Cyprus designer Michael Anastassiades, developer of the world’s most sought lamps, by British designer Ilse Crawford. The title of this issue goes to French architect Franklin Azzi.
“Having been unable to present his [retro futurism] installation upon receiving the award in September 2020, Franklin Azzi will now take center stage in the March 2022 edition.”
Since 2006, Azzi has been working in his own office, developing an interdisciplinary approach that incorporates a variety of viewpoints and disciplines, igniting dialogue between architecture, interior design, design, and modern art. Their work is backed by a constant drive for sustainability, from the type of urban micro-architecture symbolized by the Eiffel Tower kiosk to its prefabricated structure for skyscrapers in Dubai and Paris, not to mention the rehabilitation of existing structures such as Alstom’s warehouses in Nantes.
Azzi rejects the formal style in favor of architecture that is minimalist in aesthetics and maximalist in multidimensional functioning, adamantly supporting a return to ‘common sense.’ He firmly follows in the footsteps of Paul Virilio, the philosopher and urban designer with whom he was once a student.
The city of Paris has surrendered to Japan! The expo dedicates two large sections to Asian designers who are only getting their start. Kengo Kuma, a Japanese architect, curated the exhibition. His works display a deft blend of traditional and technological techniques.
LONG-LASTING PORTABLE FURNITURE
The Inflatable Leather series by Japanese business Satomi Minoshima, which explores the value of furniture and ornamental objects, is one of the highlights. They’re smaller, collapsible, and portable, and they’re built to survive longer than standard inflatables, which are typically only used in emergencies. The colors are based on skin tones, emphasizing the human dermis’ role as an environmental interface.
Another standout is Studio Yumakano’s experimental project, which combines rust and resin to produce coats. The material investigates material imperfections, natural wear and tear over time, oxidation textures, and various hues, and can be used on walls, partitions, benches, and tops, among other things. Customize the size and thickness.
RELAXED COMBINATION OF GEOMETRIC SHAPES
Baku Sakashita’s Suki lamp set gives traditional Japanese paper lanterns a fresh twist. They’re deconstructed versions that use a relaxed arrangement of geometric shapes to replicate the “ma” (space) between the light source and the paper.
Haruka Misawa’s Doshi Collection uses magnetic particles to make papers, an important material in Japanese culture, dance at will while maintaining their original texture and appearance.
