Les Lamaneurs

We created the Lamaneurs, a series of urban furnitures that invite the habitants to slow down and enjoy their city. Like the lamaneur guiding the ship, these furnitures are taking care of people. The shapes are taken from the docking houses that have a rounded front to provide a wide angle visibility and the metal and wood materials where selected from the ship building artisan industries we collaborated with. Four versions of Lamaneurs each with its own attitude, has been created inspired by their rituals: Lunch break, Coffee break, Long watch and Power nap.
Since 2018, Les Lamaneurs are part of the permanent collection of Sogn og Fjordane Contemporary Art fund.

Nous avons créé les Lamaneurs, une série de mobilier urbain invitant les habitants à se détendre et à profiter de leur ville. Comme le lamaneur qui guide le navire, ces meubles prennent soin des gens. Les formes sont empruntées aux dockers, au devant arrondi pour offrir une visibilité grand angle et les matériaux en métal et bois ont été choisis parmi les industries de la construction navale avec lesquelles nous avons collaboré. Quatre versions de Lamaneurs, chacune avec sa propre attitude, ont été créées inspirées de leurs rituels: Pause-déjeuner, Pause-café, Longue veille et Petite Sieste.
Depuis 2018, Les Lamaneurs font partie de la collection permanente du fonds Sogn og Fjordane Art Contemporain.
