Description de la revue

This book covers the work of french designer Samy Rio and attempts to give an overview of his rich and diverse process aiming towards a more sustainable design practice.

Through the use of bamboo and other materials - developed mainly with the Atelier Luma and during his many residencies - the designer has slowly built up a catalogue of objects and plastic experiments. From junctions, assemblies and systems to objects and micro-objects, his research questions the production and uses of new everyday objects.

One by one, the samples are deconstructed and analyzed in order to extract comments and solutions that - we hope - will inspire the designers of tomorrow. This publication serves as an inventory of the explorations carried out by the designer, highlighting the results of five years of research in France and abroad.
