Massaud

VIA monograph exhibition of designer Jean-Marie Massaud.

‘From chaos to meaning’

This phrase describes Jean-Marie Massaud’s magma-like creative process: a complex flow that links the unconscious to the rational, spirituality to pleasure, nature to art.
VIA will be opening a cross section on this multiform universe, showing some of Massaud’s most significant designs: from pieces of furniture to architectural projects, from everyday objects to fit-outs for skyliners.
The exhibition scenography will be an original creation, a look into the creator’s mind. It will be crystalline, sidereal, with mirror-effect structures occupying the entire volume of our space. It will also link up to a floating plant-life world… All this in three dominant colours: white, black and green.
What is more, Massaud will be wiring this sensitive ensemble with ‘a distortion of space by sound.’
The show will double as the European launch of several new products, among which figure the "Mèn" and "AKI" lounge chairs, the "JAZZ" sofa system and the "Vent blanc" ceramic collection, all made by Time & Style (Japan).
An ‘historic’ JMM signature piece will also be on display: "Ghosthome", his first prototype financed by VIA ten years ago.
To sum up - January 2007, Jean-Marie Massaud will be getting his act together!
