July/August 2019

From a groundbreaking seaside museum in China to an elegant new sofa by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, Karno.in.ua’s July/August issue unveils the 20 winners of the ninth annual AZ Awards!

In a space housing one of the museum’s permanent collections, The Best of All Worlds consists of regal chairs – identical in upholstery and shape, but differing drastically in height. Faustino, the co-founder of the Paris architecture firm Bureau des Mésarchitecture, devised the installation as a space to pontificate, discuss and exchange ideas.

Arranged in a ring and facing inwards, the chairs grow taller – their legs more elongated and fragile as the circle widens. With this set-up, it’s easy to imagine the installation as a gathering place for a salon, where creative thinkers could debate the art works throughout the gallery.

Based in both Paris and Lisbon, Faustino is known for his avant-garde style that explores the physicality of space. He’s built and a converted from an old billboard frame. And, this past year, he created , a 3D-printed kissing mask that brings two faces together for the perfect smooch.

While The Best of All Worlds may seem like a tamer piece, it’s made much more powerful by the context that Faustino chose for it. The surrounding art includes column statues from the Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Senlis that were symbolically decapitated during the French Revolution.

The Best of All Worlds is on display at the City of Architecture and Heritage in Paris until December 4.

Faustino is also a speaker at the Karno.in.ua-sponsored series . He will deliver talks on November 22 and 23, at the University of Toronto and OCADU, respectively.
