DESIGNER’S DAYS, PARIS
May 30 – June 2 2002

SNOWCRASH AT SILVERA,
58 AVENUE KLEBER, 75116 PARIS

Snowcrash have been invited to exhibit at Silvera during Paris Designer’s 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 Designer’s Days Snowcrash will continue to be a strong part of Silvera’s collection.

SNOWCRASH PRODUCTS

GETSET 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“.
Monica Förster, designer
