HABITAT THE IT DESIGN OF TOMORROW

More than 1,300 participants submitted their creations following the call for projects launched by Habitat in partnership with MyMajorCompany. Thanks to the competition, Habitat is launching three young designers and has given them the chance to have their it-Design produced.

“At the Habitat Design Studio, we want to take new ways of life into account. This call for projects also presented an incredible opportunity for Habitat to
encourage new talents and, above all, new visions, different visions.”
THE IBN VASES, DESIGNED BY ABDELKARIM ANTAR
Inspired by the Arab ingenious irrigation system, IBN is a set of three separate and complementary vases.
The thousand year old irrigation system - “Ibn” means “son of” in Arabic – allows us to reflect on the notion of inheritance. With their clean design, the vases are made of porcelain: the new material modernizes the traditional old method of transferring a trickle of water from one vessel to another in order to naturally irrigate the three components. The water flowing is like a vital bond that links memory to culture, parents to their offspring and society to its history. The muted and soothing sound of water wanders from one vase to another; like a musical poem acknowledging the passing of time.
THE FUNKY LAMP, DESIGNED BY THIBAULT POUGEOISE
A fun lamp for your desk.
This lamp comes with a base (base + light diffuser) and a silicone hat in four shapes and different colours, that will let you create a collection of unique and original lamps.
THE LIBERTAD SOFA, DESIGNED BY JULIE FIGUEROA ZAFIRO
The Libertad sofa is designed to meet the different postures that you naturally adopt when seating on a sofa. The sofa looks like a flower: the back unfolds and takes the shape of your seat. By a set of variable volumes, it travels across the floor to take on a crosslegged position and then extends over the seat so you can lie or sit down. “Libertad is a new type of sofa: it’s
an invitation to be lazy and to take time to relax.”
