École Supérieure de Design de Troyes
Chimenea Parque del Ebro
With the collaboration of École Supérieure de Design de Troyes
The project started with a workshop with 4th and 5th year students for a first phase of concept development. A team of three design students then worked on its development for 7 months.
Soucoupe populaire – Popular Dish is the result of the work of Camille Le Mesre de Pas, Léo Letouzé and Justine Thomas in collaboration with the Garnica and Concentric teams.
With this installation, they wanted to create a popular place, made of poplar (the village tree). It is a meeting point that attracts young and old thanks to its intriguing shape. The aim of the saucer is to propose various activities, so that festival-goers can appropriate the space and thus create their own unsuspected uses. On the last day of the festival, visitors will be able to meet up in a friendly atmosphere, with music and soup being served. The installation allows a real experience of exchange to develop between citizens and visitors: to meet, to circulate energy, to create alliances and unique memories, unique to each of them.
Camille, Léo and Justine thus demonstrate the mission that the Ecole Supérieure de Design de Troyes has set itself: to train designers who understand society and contribute to it in a creative and responsible way.
Aware that this company/designer connection can open up many fields of expression and innovation, the school makes the project and the company the pillars of its teaching, which becomes a living space, i.e. an intermediate space between school and city, between students and citizens and between inside and outside.
