Architect Bernard Dubois has designed the Le Soleil Est Rare modular workplace furniture for Balice Hertling & Lewis Gallery in New York. According to the designer, “Le Soleil Est Rare is designed to be always redesigned. The identity of each piece changes with the re-arrangement of the whole. Function is reduced to a standardized choice of heights.
This project therefore proposes a challenge to the ‘functional’ obsession of contemporary design: instead of trying to invent new functions, or attempt to perfect existing functions, it invites us to discover ways to use it, as in a game (even storage becomes a form of fluid hide-and-seek). “
