Domain de Boisbuchet Residency 2022

Domain de Boisbuchet Residency 2022

Pablo Bolumar is the designer selected for the residency at the Domain de Boisbuchet international design and architecture research center (Lessac, France) between July 3 and September 3, 2022.

Pablo Bolumar's work is focused on transforming semi-finished materials into contextual pieces of functional art through assemblage and storytelling. His particular approach to the discipline of design is characterized by a rational use of post-industrial resources processed with craftsmanship and technical design. The designs he produces are intended to facilitate disassembly, repair and biodegradability with an expressive and contemporary language. His work has been recognized as an emerging Spanish talent by AD magazine in 2021, with projects that use material found in agricultural and industrial contexts with ecological relevance. For this project he plans to establish a research process on lighting production applying design principles for circularity. Domaine de Boisbuchet therefore enables you to expand your network and visibility and to study the material flows of the Boisbuchet during its high season, when the concentration of human activity is greatest.

Domaine de Boisbuchet is an international research center for design and architecture. The campus is surrounded by 150 hectares of protected nature in southwest France and comprises an architectural park of historic and contemporary buildings. Residents may take advantage from all the Domaine’s facilities for work and accommodation, from its 150 hectares of forest, pasture, a river, a lake, and an unpolluted fauna and flora; from its architectural park, its vast library, archive and collection; and overall from its expertise and network after 30 years organizing workshops, events, exhibitions and many other cultural activities with institutions and people from all over the world. The residency program may be complemented by the usual series of activities held at Boisbuchet, such as exhibitions, guided tours, workshops, presentations, talks, discussions, conferences, and more.
