LA CABANE DE WEEKEND
When playing with the idea of containers as living modules, we kept thinking about the prefab structures from the French modernists of the ‘50s.
Similar to the likes of Jean Prouve and Charlotte Perriand’s demountable homes, or Le Corbusier’s prefabricated Cabin in the south of France; I loved the thought of being able to place a simple cabana anywhere your heart desired. And this design is really an ode to these modernists and their desire to live simply yet meaningfully.
In a time where we feel a bit more constrained and limited by our surroundings, I wanted to create a place to escape to, a space to feel free, explorative and creative, far away from daily life. La Cabane De Weekend, if you will, where the beach bleeds into the living space and any concerns melt into the sand.
