Workshops 2016

ORIGIN AND TRANSLATION

Boisbuchet’s workshops are an initiative of Vitra Design Museum’s founding director Alexander von Vegesack, who started both projects at the same time. Today, Boisbuchet offers the most versatile and distinguished workshop program on the international design agenda and in 2016 sets its focus on “Origin and Translation”.
Living in a globalizing culture, tolerance, understanding and learning are increasingly challenged. Therefore this 26th edition of our workshops puts creativity to the test: What are role models, what is authentic and original, and how are projects influenced by reproduction or imitation, interpretation and a translation of the existing?

This season presents 47 acclaimed tutors from 20 different countries and invites you to a rich diversity of practices: furniture and products, flowers, the landscape, choreography, fashion, costumes, decoration, art, curating and scenography, installations, interiors and architecture, craft, food and yoga, lighting, robotics, and engineering.

Discover our program and participate in your own journey between Origin and Translation with a unique experience at Boisbuchet!

BOISBUCHET SUMMER WORKSHOPS 2016

Boisbuchet’s workshops are offered in cooperation with Vitra Design Museum and Centre Pompidou and realised by CIRECA (Centre International de Recherche et d’Éducation Culturel et Agricole) – the nonprofit organisation that runs Boisbuchet’s program and is certified by the French government. Other institutions such as universities, non-governmental organisations or companies are always welcome as our partners, for whom we can tailor programs individually.

“From my perspective, as a practicing designer-artist, and as a former educator, the significance of Boisbuchet lies is its ability to attract the top leading edge designers to run these workshops (take a look at the list of current and former tutors on the poster). The workshops are hands on and intimate. The setting is magic but relaxed, rural and community focused. Many practitioners I know look for the opportunity to re-engage with their creative side – some blue sky design giving them a chance to re-fuel their design practice (versus the business and production end of design). This is hard to do within the office environment. Also many designers from this region go to Europe for the purpose of getting an expanded design experience. However much of this involves looking rather than doing. At Boisbuchet there is the chance to do so with leading-edge designers and global playmates. I found it to be very special – and I have done workshops in many places.
