The point of departure of Next Cabane is a simple, foldable hut-like structure made of wooden slats, from a flea market in the north of Scotland, which, it seems, was originally covered with a tarpaulin and used as a shelter for anglers. The designers at Fabrica have subjected this mobile room to different interpretations. The six projects shown at Mudam have used it respectively as a temporary means of delimitation, as a symbolic protective space, as a place of work or play, or as an exhibition venue. As an enclosed space, it enables a more conscious perception of place and its characteristics; it is an experimental space in which design methods can be used to examine and interrogate materials, forms and structures.
The Mobile Museum, by Philip Bone (*1984) and Dean Brown (*1985), is a mobile museum whose collection changes its theme depending on where it is exhibited. It is made up of corresponding objects from a large variety of sources.
Soft Fold by Marie Dessant and Margaux Keller is a temporary space which invites the users to take time out of their day. Duvets, a reading table, a low bench and a lamp compose this hybrid furniture/space. The harmony of colors emphasizes this soft and quiet atmosphere.
