Paris has been invaded by a Gesamtkunstwerk! (Bless you?) That is, it’s been enhanced by an all-encompassing, experiential exhibition by industrial designer Matali Crasset at the Pompidou Center. With Le Blobterre de Matali, Crasset has created a multi-sensory fantasy garden in which kids (and their young-at-heart parents) can frolic.
French design star Matali Crasset has finished her first architectural project, a splashy, experimental lodge set down in the heart of the Tunisian desert.
Recall, for a moment, that when we first learned of Dar HI, we worried that the place would resemble some sort of rich person's Jonestown. We're happy to report that we were completely, totally wrong. (Looks-wise, in any case. As for how the place is used, the website claims that a trip to Dar HI "is all about initiation, discover[y]." Interpret that as you will.)
