À propos : Deserto est un soliflore en verre soufflé, utilisant le savoir-faire traditionnel des maîtres verriers de la Vénétie. Inspirée par la dernière goutte d’une bouteille vide, la forme du vase Deserto évoque une idée de désert, de manque d’eau. Le vase Deserto sera exposé au Katara Art Center lors de l’exposition Shared Glass organisée par Fabrica et VCUQatar, du 1er décembre 2011 au 7 janvier 2012.
About the designer : Marie Dessuant was born in 1984 in Paris. In 2008, she graduated with distinction from the Ecole Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs de Strasbourg in product design (MA). She wrote a thesis about ‘Wandering in Daily Life’ and designed a collection entitled ‘Objets Vagues’. She then worked in Shanghai, collaborating with studios like Naço architecture and EXH. In 2010 she was awarded the Cinna-Ligne Roset design award ‘révélateur de talents’ for the ‘étagère de coin’, which is now produced by Cinna – Ligne Roset. From October 2010 to October 2011 she was a resident at Fabrica, the Benetton Group Communication Research Centre, in Italy. She lives and Works in Paris. She envisions design as a way to observe her surroundings, a way of seeing, a way of showing. She experiments with a large scope of practices (product, furniture, space, graphic design, drawing, concept…) Beyond these forms, she is trying to develop new ways of interacting with objects. Using new typologies or modified details in traditional product, she is trying not to impose anything to the user, not to say too much, not to be too narrative. Her projects aim to raise questions rather than to give solutions.
