There’s a strange pleasure in watching a building crumble to the ground, tearing in half a sheet of paper or making a balloon explode, they are actions that may last less than a second, nevertheless, being so ephemeral, they move you more in a short lapse of time, we can say they are speed actions creating high intensity moments. Nankin Lab is a design studio which works within these moments to generate new projects.
For the fourth year, the International Graphic Design Festival of Chaumont is providing “carte blanche” exhibition spaces. Nankin Lab has been selected as an experimental studio to work in one of this spaces showing his projects.
Chaumont is located in the region of Champagne-Ardenne. For two weeks it becomes the location for the Festival International de l’Affiche et du Graphisme de Chaumont. A playground for creatives. Full of activities, lectures, exhibitions and workshops hosting great designers and future promises. A place characterized by good humour and constant activity.
We’ve been there with Nankin Lab, proposing a constructive system using destruction as a constructive weapon. It’s been a great success with a big feedback, whereas the participation of visitors has been overwhelming.
We want to thank the entire organization who has proactively collaborated to make this project possible and to Elisava School of Design and Engineering of Barcelona, for all the support they have given us.
We can only say one thing, hope to see you next year!
