Studio With A View: the designers at FabLab.iMAL
Studio With A View is an artist collective based in Brussels. The designers Damien Gernay, Julien Carretero and Charlotte Dumoncel d'Argence have been invited to work at FabLab.iMAL to explore the possibilities of digital fabrication technologies. The results of their experimentations will be shown during the MAD(E) IN BRUSSELS exhibition at MAD, in the framework of Design September 2013 (opening night on September 5th).
Their work aims to promote the technical and technological potential of the FabLab.iMAL machines. The designers chose to work around the concept of production tools, with the aim to highlight the possibilities of such new creative lab. In this way, the unique object made through digital fabrication means emancipates itself from its prototype status to become the base of a serial production.
About Studio With A View
Studio With A View is a new Brussels-based collective gathering 5 designers, 2 photographers and 1 architect in a large space dedicated to creativity. Settled in what used to be the 'Bottelarij Belle-Vue' nearby the city-center, it aims to encourage the exchange of know-hows through the stimulation of an interdisciplinary dialogue. Because of its setting, combining private dedicated spaces and flexible collective workshops adaptable according to projects, Studio With A View is a place for research, experimentation, discussion and production. Studio With A View aims at establishing itself as a local as well as international platform through the organization of exhibitions, workshops, lectures and through the hosting of guests residents. Studio With A View is Julien Carretero, Raphaël Charles, Émilio Correia, Maarten de Ceulaer, Charlotte Dumoncel d'Argence, Dimitri Fache, Damien Gernay and Nicolas Neefs.
This first residency for young designers at FabLab.iMAL is a collaboration with Mode And Design Center (MAD) and is supported by the Brussels-Capital Region.
