What is fascinating about this project is its change of scale: much more than an outdoor furnishing, Hut is a type of en-plein-air microarchitecture which moves lightly in public and private spaces. More than its volume, designed to define a minimal, intimate and comfortable space, the elegance of the structure is striking. It is an almost aerial frame, made of wooden slats that brings us back to certain experiments by the young Italian designer based in Paris: minimal housing units, as delicate as nests, which can hide in tree branches or float on the surface of the water. A fortunate change of scale, especially in post-pandemic times, which will force us to keep our distance, again.
