Jean Nouvel, Milan 2013
Distinguished French architect, and designer of many products - including an adorable pair of rubber boots.
French architect Jean Nouvel created an office installation for the Milan Furniture Fair, 2013.
At a press pre-view, to talk about his ideas, he told the huge audience of assembled international media: "I believe in mutation – where possible change what exists, so that empty offices can become homes." Then he looked up at the ugly ceiling under which he was talking (although this was in a brand new office building, which was something of a showcase) - "but first we need some changes in office design."
