For their series "The Digression - One hour, an object," the designers of Workshops Peekaboo have created simple and clever objects from what exists, self-produced objects, diverting materials or everyday objects, flirting with the "ready made". Discover their wooden stool "Accouphène" their vase concrete "Brickfang" tidying office "The Oxymorons", the minimum clock "Ornament used to be a crime" and the lamp "Sorry, Ingvar".
The series "Digression - One hour, an object" of Peekaboo Workshop won the first prize in the international design show "Basel Blickfang 2012".
On this project, Damien Thierry & Workshop Peekaboo specify:
"" Digression "is a concept that emphasizes the desire but above all the need to create with the means of edges in time young designers.
Some constraints are then imposed themselves. Great importance has been increased cost necessary to achieve the product materials. Movement "readymade" has also strongly inspired us. The second constraint, always financial, just evidence of self-production. It was necessary to produce parts using basic tools without having to resort to any external company. And finally the time constraint
which is the main advantage of "Digression" concept: An hour, an object.
We wanted to take advantage of these penalties and they feel in the design of each product as well as the harmony of the whole collection. The yoke under which we thought, designed and materialized these
products, so we can propose items at affordable prices while ensuring quality craftsmanship. "
