Atelier Escales

Atelier Escales is a pretext to the encounter. A parenthesis for the designer-researcher, the designer-explorer, which opens and closes over projects.
This mobile design studio buildt in a van has the aim to drive projects in immersion into french territories, working with local specific know-how on short timescapes. It is about adopting roaming and a nomadic process in direct link to production, it is about thinking favorable conditions for an open minded approach, involving echanges and relations as primal materials for a design project.
A research and creation protocol which, free from all expectations, can only rely on intuitions. In that way, the van is much more than a transport device, it becomes an condition of exchange. An itinerary from which arise a panorama of intuitions, experiments and then objects with variable typologies and scales according to the context. The wish to express the encounter of knowledges and crossed paths.

In 2016, Atelier Escales marks its first Escale in the Bask-Country, to work with Notox Surfboards .
