Great Design Lesson by Matali Crasset — From the object to the architecture: a matter of scale
9th January 2020 — 6 pm
AMO Hauts-de-France and lille—design were honoured to receive matali crasset, the French industrial designer, as part of a Great Design Lesson at Tripostal, in Lille!
Matali Crasset explained her vision of the designer's profession and how she sees design as a search. Bringing her fresh perspective and expert view of the world, she examines the evidence of conventions in order to overcome them more effectively. Her work involves looking for new typologies and formulating brand new life principles. She defines this search as gentle guidance towards the contemporary world.
