WORKBAYS VILLAGE: FARMBAY

Given the task of revisiting Vitra’s ‘Workbays’, a microarchitectural system designed in 2006 by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, my Product Design Master class developped the Workbays Village. The project was led by Erwan Bouroullec and Camille Blin.

I proposed to introduce the concept of office farming. The Farm Bay allows for office workers to cultivate their own plants and create a micro jungle within the workplace. 

Exhibited at:
ELAC Gallery in Renens, Switzerland 2017
Design Parade, Port des Créateurs, Toulon, France 2017
