Content of the program

Discover this two-week training course dedicated to “The aesthetics of recycling”, an experience combining theory and practice, economics and aesthetics, while placing the participant at the heart of the action.
During this exceptional experience, participants will explore in depth the contemporary issues of the industry, while looking into innovative solutions to respond to the major challenge of the 21st century: waste.
Guided by Gaëlle Gabillet and Stéphane Villard from Studio GGSV, this training will focus on acquiring knowledge related to the recycling process, while exploring new industrial intelligence and promoting synergies between different sectors. Participants will have the opportunity to analyze the actions of key industry players and explore the opportunities offered by the circular economies market, identifying reserves of raw materials, semi-finished products and in-process products. recycling. Several conferences, at the heart of the MaNa campus, will be organized around these themes.
This training will be above all a practical experience during which participants, working in teams, will design and produce prototypes of furniture and objects while integrating a new aesthetic dimension. They will benefit from the expertise of Studio GGSV and the knowledge of circular economy experts to create pieces that are both aesthetic and durable.


with Studio GGSV

Gaëlle Gabillet and Stéphane Villard joined forces within Studio GGSV in 2011, after having collaborated on “{Objet} Trou Noir”, a manifesto project winning the 2011 VIA Carte blanche, which joined the permanent collection of the Center Pompidou in 2017 . Highly noted, their project responded to the principles of eco-design through the recovery of waste, the decomposition of manufactured products and the despecialization of objects.

Since then, they have developed a multidisciplinary practice, ranging from exhibition curating to object design, from scenography to interior architecture. The first French designers to collaborate with Gufram, they presented large-format rugs inspired by the disco years in Milan in 2018. The same year, for the 40th anniversary of the Center Pompidou, they imagined “Galerie Party”, a unique event for the Children’s Gallery.

In 2019, returning from their residence in the prestigious Villa Médicis, they signed with the architects h2o the redevelopment of the Museum of Modern Art of the City of Paris for which “ghost furniture” was imagined, which fades to leave their full place in the works.

In 2021, 19M entrusted them with the complete layout of “La Galerie”, for which they designed all the furniture, playing with different exceptional craftsmanship to innovate on finishes, shapes and materials.
