There is always a plan B, another way to play with our tools, that was our milestone, to really enjoy the way we were working with the images and objects through a whole concept of design studio.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
There is a rare pleasure in seeing a building collapse, in breaking a paper in a half, or blowing up a balloon. These are acts that sometimes last less than a second, and being so ephemeral, makes you run longuer in a shorter time. These are situations involving speed and high intensity. Nankin Lab is a design studio that recreates on these moments to generate new projects.
