"Appreciating the idea that it is possible to domesticate certain industrial techniques, I developed a design around new generative processes closely related to the material and production devices. The technology is not a goal but a means to advance and change my thoughts on the subject and its impact on our lives. also, these systems and processes always unite to use functions related to the human being, the qualities of use, but also the future of the industrialized part." - Pierre Favresse
