Espace 3-8 at Pompidou in Paris
by Leopold Banchini

3-8 is a new design piece designed by Leopold Banchini permanently installed in one of the exhibition rooms on the 4th floor of the Centre Pompidou in Paris.

This educational space hosts dialogues between art and industries as well as workshops and lectures.

Inspired by the technical raised floors used in offices around the globe, the pedagogical tools of the multifunctional space are hidden under the surface.

Confronting the “clean desk” trends of current neo-capitalism to utopian flexible projects of the 70s, this new Supersurface questions our alienating working environment.

Entirely built with grey materials used in the working environment, the project suggests new subversive usages and encourages emancipation from preconceived relation with the professional realm.

Designed in collaboration with Laure Jaffuel, the project opened in May 2018.
