To celebrate its 50th anniversary USM Modular Furniture Haller invited seven groups of designers to rethink the concept of modularity during a one-week workshop in Boisbuchet, France.

Leaded by Dimitri’s Bahler’s vision of modularity our group focused on the moment of activation of the modularity and the relation between man and machine. We created an installation composed of four different modules that come to life when air is blown on the switches. Each module reacts and produces a different movement or rhythm according to computational coding or naturals forces. The output is programmed to look random, flexible, alive.
