This exhibition space for interior furnishings is made by gathering a variety of outlines, each one tracing a small space.

The scale of this kind of small space is not that of a room, but more like an extension of the furniture.

The combination of the various outlines creates a rich visual field where the visitor can view the furniture from the outside or by passing through.

Not so much a physical object, the intervention forms a loose environment with a unique scale and visual condition. In this space, it is the visitor and the furniture that take on a new presence.
