Reverse Room @ Boutique of Centre Pompidou


On the occasion of Paris Design Week, Foscarini presents the installation “REVERSE ROOM” by James and Suzan Wines
at the Boutique of Centre Pompidou – 6/15 September 2018

The “Reverse Room” installation – conceived by James Wines together with his daughter Suzan Wines – is an invitation to think of a world, of design and therefore of what is possible, where it is always imaginable to shed light differently. Protagonist of the installation is “The Light Bulb Series”, a designer art-house collection – consisting of a limited and numbered edition of pieces. “The Light Bulb Series” is a reflection on the light bulb as an archetype, with its typical bulb-like shape, produced in a series of surprising provocations. James Wines translates this reflection with explorations that revolve around the principal themes that have always guided his architectural research.
Wines’s light bulbs are in turn melted, broken, inverted, turned black, and invaded by nature. A propensity towards experimentation, doing better but also doing differently, which has always animated Foscarini as well.
