Design Cream? Quèsaco? An event presenting the crème de la crème of designers and architects, of course! And who says prestigious casting, says choice format. On Thursday, March 26, 2018, ten creators, gathered for the Materials & Light fair, thus presented their creations, inspirations and projects in an atypical way in 20 images, projected 20 seconds apart. Zoom on the world of Yoonseux Architectes.
The Design Cream nights, designed by Benjamin Girard from the Design Project agency, aim to offer a scene to the cream of the cream of creators to present their projects to a wide audience, in a format specific, rhythmic and concise, and in a relaxed atmosphere. What ensure a global success at these gatherings! Everything fits in the format, named Pecha Kucha: the guests have 20 slides, shown during 20 seconds each, and which scroll automatically; either 6 minutes and 40 seconds for each of them. No blah-blah: the various speakers expose here the essence of their achievements.
The agency is led by Franco-Korean architects Kyunglan Yoon and Philippe Seux. The association of two cultures occupies a decisive place in the definition of projects, in particular through the relationship between interior and exterior spaces, the capture of light, the sensitive and tactile dimension of different spaces, materials. As a touch device, the body is fully solicited in a sensory experience with different surface states of matter and light. The agency's research and activity is developing through national and international competitions, including major projects such as the 3 Satellite at Charles de Gaulle Airport and the Nice City Hall. Under the impulse of these projects, the architectural approach of the agency is synthesized around the themes of structure and light. Kyunglan Yoon and Philippe Seux attach great importance to the construction system, the compactness of the building, raw materials, but also and especially to the sensory experimentation of light.
