Professor Josh Owen was invited to deliver a workshop at Domaine du Boisbuchet in Lessac, France last week joining such previous designers as Shigeru Ban, The Bouroulllec brothers, Konstantin Grcic, Jasper Morrison and Maarten Van Severen among others.

The project was organized together with the Corning Museum of Glass’s mobile GlassLab which was deployed along with four master glass-blowers who prototyped the ideas of eleven participants under Owen’s guidance.

Boisbuchet integrates innovative architecture and design practices into the setting of a rural 19th century estate. They invest in a culture that respects the past and builds for the future with research into a sustainable relationship between the natural and the man-made by offering a creative environment for people of all cultures to share.

Boisbuchet’s workshops are offered in cooperation with the Vitra Design Museum and Centre Pompidou and realized by CIRECA (Centre International de Recherche et d’Éducation Culturel et Agricole) – the nonprofit organization that runs Boisbuchet’s program and is certified by the French government.
