Chaumont is located in the region of Champagne-Ardenne. For two weeks it becomes the location for the Festival International de l’Affiche et du Graphisme de Chaumont. A playground for creatives. Full of activities, lectures, exhibitions and workshops hosting great designers and future promises. A place characterized by good humour and constant activity.

We’ve been there with Nankin Lab, proposing a constructive system using destruction as a constructive weapon. It’s been a great success with a big feedback, whereas the participation of visitors has been overwhelming.

We want to thank the entire organization who has proactively collaborated to make this project possible and to Elisava School of Design and Engineering of Barcelona, for all the support they have given us.

We can only say one thing, hope to see you next year! 

Collateral damages!

This morning we had a huge amount of visitors!

La plus petite société d’impression.

I Have Been Series at Centre Pompidou!

A really nice visit to Camila Bassi in Paris. 

There’s a strange pleasure in watching a building crumble to the ground, tearing in half a sheet of paper or making a balloon explode, they are actions that may last less than a second, nevertheless, being so ephemeral, they move you more in a short lapse of time, we can say they are speed actions creating high intensity moments.

After long a week of filling up approximately twelve thousand bubbles, working day and night with a needle in our hands, it is now time to make things happen. The wall will reach its reason to be when all of you guys work together destroying bubbles, transforming the piece into something unique by its erosion.


Today we were invited to Matthieu’s family Champagnerie. It was a challenge not drinking all the stock. 

Sometimes work gets sort of wierd….


We’re done!

Rediscovering our countryside skills frightening cows with cheese.
