A designer has co-created a multipurpose installation, ‘Marché des créateurs’, for a Luxembourg museum.
In conjunction with MUDAM, Noa Haim constructed 200 cardboard stools as ‘building blocks’ for a popup shop named ‘Marché des créateurs’.
Artists and creatives could arrange the stools into areas in which to sell their work – it only took one afternoon to build the entire shop from the furniture.
Haim said: We were trying to keep the design minimal, so visitors would focus on the goods for sale, while also forming a unique retail environment. The system was designed as an open system to allow maximum flexibility for the créateurs participating at the event – they could adjust their own stand according to their needs.’
After the shop closed, the stools were repurposed for the museum’s elderly visitors during guided tours, but will be reassembled into the shop in the summer.
Noa Haim is based in Rotterdam and operates under the title ‘Collective Paper Aesthetics’. Working primarily with cultural and educational establishments, Haim’s motto is ‘everyone can play a designer’.
