"Portée" par Joachim Jirou-Najou

Imagined by this young Parisian designer, "Scope" is a series of furniture for wall mounting. A reflection that questions the relationship between architecture and design.

Made of lacquered sheet steel, freeing the floor, this series consists of different elements including a chair, a bench, a console, several shelves and storage.

Joachim Jirou-Najou's thinking is therefore at the heart of the dialogue between design and architecture. For him, the furniture here complements the architecture. He is no longer an isolated object. It is also interesting to note that it is only once fixed to the wall that the elements of the "Scope" series acquire their status as furniture. Indeed, before entering into a dialogue with the architectural support that welcomes them, they are only unfinished objects, without orientation, without function, in the making.

The "Portée" series was exhibited at Galerie Gilles Peyroulet & Cie in Paris and at Galleria Luisa Delle Piane in Milan. It is also part of the collections of the National Contemporary Art Fund.

Young Parisian designer, Joachim Jirou-Najou graduated from the Higher School of Art and Design in Reims. After a stint in the agency Delo Lindo, he is now working with the designer Pierre Charpin. He is a member of the collective DITO to which we owe the recent development of the Radiant City apartment of Le Corbusier in Briey-en-Forêt.
