Très jolie installation au bord du bassin central du jardin du V & A
« The shed was a collaboration between Paul Smith and Myself (Nathalie de Leval http://www.deleval.co.uk) and sponsored by AHEC and Benchmark Fournitures. Within a very short fie week period we went from designing the shed to a one week build at Benchmark Furniture, which is Terence Conran’s furniture making company. The shed is 10’x10’x10’, which is the size of Paul Smith’s first shop in Nottingham. The shed itself also rotates, so that you can change the view or follow the sun, and that was influenced by George Bernard Shaw’s writing hut, he had a little summer house at the end of his garden where he used to do his writing. One of the big influences for the shed, is the window from Luis Barragán, who was a Mexican designer from the 1950s. We also looked at fisherman’s huts in Hastings where they used to dry their nets and make these very tall black clad huts. »

L’assiette bio proposée le dimanche 7 septembre dernier dans ce jardin, par le traiteur Benugo. Le hoummous fait passer les graines. Très bon, pourrait vous convertir à la nourriture bio.
