Inspired by the work of the japanese architect Kengo Kuma and his museum in Aichi, we used a joint technique, which allowed us to create the look we were looking for in the first place, but in a less complicated way than the first technique we had in mind.
[Detail construction/ dessin]
We developed a mechanism that is handleable for two people
When the element is out of the common structure, it takes the function of a table. This time the table has legs. But its function can still change: when pushed down, it becomes a bench.
On Georgette Avenue, it is located on the pavement next to a façade. This location was chosen because of the research undertaken by the infrastructure team. They analyzed that the passage was reducing itself on this part of the street. It was the perfect place to put our table, because both a table and a bench prevent the passage. In this way, the location is an anomaly in the street.

Instead of a table leg, our element is now suspended by cables, which allows us to change its height and create different fonctions.
When at its highest position, the table takes the function of an overhead window.
The proportions of the square units were determined in fonction of the impression of verticality that we were looking for. Their length was defined by idea that the table must be comfortable for the average person.

Three different prototypes of table were produced, each of them created around the notion of versatility.
Two paths were thorough.
Integration of the Element in the façade by its proportions and the verticality of the modules.
