Bellevue-Möbel is an ongoing project, aiming to support Bellevue di Monaco, a local association that helps young refugees and draws attention to the issues and problems they are facing.
Since this association is opening a info-café and meeting point in Munich's city centre, they need furniture. And since they put a lot of sweat and blood into the remodeling of the 50s-building, it can't just be any furniture. It needs to be adaptable to a variety of situations within the room, needs to match all the gastronomic requirements and has to look pleasing and inviting. Over the course of one semester we developped a chair and a table, that fit perfectly into Bellevue di Monacos' info-café and serve a second important purpose: the furniture is designed to be personalised by refugees. In small workshop groups, chair and table will be customised via sand blasting and different printing techniques.
Fortunately, a furniture producer joined us and chair and table will be available in retail within the next couple of months. Stay tuned!
