Matières Spécifiques

Matières Spécifiques questions the current design and use of appliances within the home, where objects with high energy consumption and planned obsolescence have become the norm.

The designer proposes a more sustainable approach, using basic physics to ensure an economy of means. An earthenware air humidifier uses capillary action to diffuse water through its paper-clay surface, while a woven tapestry acts as an air conditioner. Tubes containing Phase Change Material are woven within the structure, absorbing heat and producing a decorative blue pattern as it is cooled.
