scavenger studio

It is an artist studio situated in the woods. It was built using as much free-cycled material as possible. Scavenger Studio is a 693-square-foot studio designed for an artist/activist. The little structure is situated in the woods in rural Washington state, USA. Scavenged materials, ranging from cabinetry to plants, were salvaged from homes slated to be demolished. The kitchen and living area occupie the ground level of the double-height interior, while a floor-to-ceiling window-wrapped sleeping loft, accessible via a steel staircase, provides views of the forest.

diego giacometti at the musée picasso, paris

The art works at ‘Diego Giacometti at the musée Picasso in Paris’ includes chairs, benches, lamps and tables, exclusively created for the hotel Salé. They represent the climax of Diego Giacometti’s work by executing its last commission before his death in July 1985. “Artisan-poet” according to the expression of Jean Leymarie, Diego Giacometti offers in this furniture a range of different facets of his universe: the taste for nature and plants, the reading of the ancient sources, Greeks and Etruscan, the aspiration of creating a real ‘geometry in the air’. The bronze and resin furniture, nowadays inseparable of the hotel Salé’s decoration is in dialoge with the original plasters created by the artist. The presentation of his artist's studio collection, accompanied by a selection of previously unseen photographs and archives allows…
