Jorge Penadés | Learning From the Wrong Places | Boisbuchet 2018
In this workshop we studied the agricultural surroundings of the Domaine the Boisbuchet to create a catalogue of references from which new objects, furniture, sculptures, or installations could arise. Participants were guided through an experimental learning process from non-design educated entities. An erratic connection, an improvised structure, or an accidental space could be the starting point for a project that will generate a creative emancipation from our standardized contemporary culture.
Oficina Penadés is a Madrid-based office for experimental ideas founded in 2015 by Spanish designer Jorge Penadés. Jorge cultivates a dissident approach to the contemporary notion of design. He audits heterodox ideas in order to generate non-standard outcomes, introducing alternative opportunities towards more responsible social, cultural, economical or political contexts.
His work has been legitimized by different museums, galleries and design venues including Vitra Design Museum (Weil am Rhein), National Design Museum (Stockholm), Museu del Disseny (Barcelona), Villa Noailles (Hyères), The Aram Gallery (London), Machado-Muñoz (Madrid) or Rossana Orlandi (Milan).
Recently he has been nominated by the German Architectural Digest magazine for their ´AD Design Award 2017´ on the category of Product Design and has won the ´AD Nuevo talento Campari Award´ given by Spanish Architectural Digest magazine.
