Some design objects belonging to the Palomar Collection - Galileo’s Telescope, Crumpled City™ Maps, PinCity Wall Maps - have been selected for the Exhibition “PIONNIER”, during the last Maison&Objet Edition.
The aim of the Exhibition was to document today’s atmosphere and to invite to draw inspiration from the living world in order to enter a new age in which life goes on. From the presentation of François Bernard:
“PIONNIER is a state of mind as much as it is an art of living. A mix of practical spirit and poetic beliefs in search of scientific legitimacy, the style is developing in harmony with nature and time.It does not contrast nature with the city, old with new, innovation with old hat. The cycle of permanent renewal seems to have been overtaken by an aesthetic of reconsideration and creative reappropriation (…)The pioneers of “modern life” are developing a holistic philosophy, spending more time in order to “do better”, and prefer semi-mechanical, the semi- manual to the fully automatized.”
Yes, we agree and this is the philosophy which inspires Palomar design collection.
