"COMFORT IN TRAIN STATIONS" AT SAINT-ETIENNE INTERNATIONAL DESIGN BIENNALE
AREP designlab revisits the notions of comfort and social ties in shared spaces at the 11th edition of the Saint-Etienne International Design Biennale, themed "Me, You, We: Designing common ground".
After rethinking nomadic work in 2017 and designing alternative spaces for work, meetings, recruitment, or studying, AREP's designers have transformed an individual seat into a shared bench.
The installation on the forecourt of Saint-Étienne-Châteaucreux station draws on the new range of station furniture designed for SNCF Gares & Connexions. Its large scale and its resemblance to a model armchair create a double play between scale and point of view.
Come and visit our installation on the St-Etienne station forecourt from March 21 to April 22, 2019
