From June 14th to September 10th, Exhibition Le Rêve des formes at Le Palais de Tokyo in Paris.

« Matter will be lacking, we have to use little as possible »
It is in this ecological perspective that the designer Patrick Jouin extends his research on 3D prints introduced in 2004 with the collection « Solid » dedicated to organic forms.

With Professor Marescaux, minimally invasive surgery specialist and chairman of the Institute for Research against Digestive Cancer (IRCAD), he imagines “an exploratory journey at the heart of the object”: a monolithic bench covered by a thin skin and composed of a multitude of ribs and bridges guaranteeing its rigidity. Thanks to an endoscopic camera, we are entering inside the internal structure of this bench of a great visual economy. It is more complex than what its external envelope might suggest.

Patrick Jouin was inspired by the nature’s efficiency and its capacity to produce simple forms such as a bone’s curve or a wheat ears’ stem.
