Prix Jean Prouvé

Camondo: Prix Jean Prouvé: Designing common spaces in a sixth form college

Prix Jean Prouvé 2020: winners ex-æquo, two teams from the Ecole Camondo – 4th year, teachers: Caroline Ziegler and Paul Marchesseau.

The winning projects came from the Ecole Camondo in Paris and embody the ambition for a third place based on complementarity between the material and the immaterial. As such, they remain true to Jean Prouvé’s critical approach to materials and a form of thought through the void, allowing human energy to be expressed, as emphasised by Philippe Starck.

See the projects: “Beyond the walls: furniture for a mobile school” and “Key: a school that makes connections”.

The two winning teams of the 2020 prize will work with students on the vocational course to produce final degree works encompassing the widest range of crafts and professions, from service-based activities to manufacturing excellence. The Prix Jean Prouvé from the Ministry of National Education, Youth and Sports, in partnerships with the CNAM and Vitra France, draws on the creative forces of our French design schools to drive innovation within the school.

philarmonie de paris école camondo

Camondo: Cité de la musique – Philarmonie de Paris: Basquiat and music: Scenography for the exhibition Basquiat at the Philharmonie

The teams at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts and the Cité de la musique – Philharmonie de Paris have worked on an unprecedented exhibition project on the great importance of music in the art of Jean-Michel Basquiat. The aim of this project was to intimately and intelligently explore the way in which a work – in this case, of art – can blossom through dialogue with another discipline – music. The scenography project also illustrated how an artist can, in his production, metabolise a complex ecosystem comprising an era (the 80s), an atmosphere (the NY underground), encounters (Madonna, Andy Warhol, etc.), a culture (his Haitian roots, his status as a black American), models (the great Jazzmen – Charlie Parket) and emotions cultivated by living and working to music.

Once the theme and context of the exhibition were set – to give the visitor this unique experience, making them really feel the role of music in Jean-Michel Basquiat’s practice – and the public areas of the Philharmonie on the ground floor had been explored, it was up to the students, as part of the set topic, to build their own subject in all its dimensions.

Set degree topic, 2019/2020.
