As part of its expansion and renovation, the Hyacinthe Rigaud Museum of Art in Perpignan has assigned us to design the reception and rest furniture as well as the follow-up of signage, and the graphics of the four permanent exhibitions.
In response to the important materiality of the building and collections, we wanted a light and simple furniture: it is a rectangle.
The constructive principle is based on the extrusion of a triangular base section whose visible angles are thickened along a single volume. The slice seen is very thin but the shape of the section ensures a structural assembly. The geometry adapts to the uses and volumetry of the room in which the furniture is installed.
The range of furniture consists of a reception desk, benches of different lengths and sit-debouts for the room staff.
