DESIGNERS DAYS, PARIS

SNOWCRASH AT SILVERA,
58 AVENUE KLEBER, 75116 PARIS
Snowcrash have been invited to exhibit at Silvera
during Paris Designers Days. Occupying the whole showroom, the Snowcrash
installation is drawn from our new collection for work.
Not just about the office in the conventional sense or
place, Snowcrash brings a fresh spirit to how individuals can interpret
and adapt their work environment. The holistic approach extends from Cloud,
a portable office or relaxation room that inflates in minutes and can
be used for meeting or relaxation to Loco, a bag that opens up to make
a mobile work pad or Soundwave, sculptural wall panels designed to enhance
acoustics in the work environment.
After Designers Days Snowcrash will continue to
be a strong part of Silveras collection.
desk and storage system and SLIP lightweight space divider are designed
to structure workspaces according to individual desires and adapt as these
change. The series of set-ups in the installation Dreamplaces
emerged from a casting where we asked colleagues in the Snowcrash
office to build their own ideal work places as part of the Snowcrash Living
Catalogue on www.snowcrash.se

CLOUD is a portable room that can be inflated in
minutes and used for meeting, concentration or relaxation and packs away
into a carrying bag.
Whenever I fly I wonder what it would be like to step inside a cloud.
When I started to research clouds I came across the cumulus, also called
the happy cloud. It forms from
moisture in the air, rising in the morning and disappearing in the evening.
This is exactly how I imagine the cloud room it goes up in the
morning and then it
disappears when you leave in the evening.
