Fabrica presents Objet Préféré, at the Grand-Hornu in Belgium with an exceptional collection of fifteen furniture pieces. These fifteen amazing furniture pieces have been created following a workshop between young Fabrica designers and personnel such as craftsmen, technicians, and office staff of the Grand-Hornu Images Cultural Center in Belgium.
The challenge of this project was firstly and foremost to identify the favorite objects of the Grand-Hornu personnel; the story lying behind each tangible or intangible object, and how this object could be portrayed by means of a unique and special exhibition. Design therefore ‘evolves’ challenging its identity, and the way it communicates itself by uniting groups of people with a different background, whether that is cultural, racial, language, age, and sex. Once the objects were considerately selected a think-tank of ideas followed during a passionate and rewarding week of interactions, brainstorming, meetings and photographic sessions on the theme “Favorite Object.”
