  2. Stamp is a production line that converts simple plastic trellis into portable lamps. The steps in the manufac- turing process are carried out along a rail: the plastic is heated, shaped, and finally crimped over an inexpensive bulb. The result of this ingenious production is a portable lamp complete with a graphic lightweight shade.

  3. Using a surface transfer method known as “marbling”, the Marbelous transforms simple objects by coating them with a thin layer of marbled motifs. With a few drops of paint, surprising colour effects are transferred to metallic mirrors, giving your reflection an unexpected impression.

  4. The Uncle Sam machine processes grains one by one, focusing on the transformation of corn into popcorn. An explosion that usually occurs en masse is here isolated so that the spectacle can be enjoyed. Satisfaction is at once visual and gastronomic.

  5. Swing is a giant punch that transforms pieces of stretch tarpaulin into extendable openwork sacks. The items
    are produced by the weight of the user who, gyrating, executes a production movement resembling
    a dance step.
