At Po! Paris the creative process is always in direct link with a person – an encounter- his or her talents, the limits and materials.
A smith from the Sinti (Egyptijan) community, very active in the collction of recyclable materials, inspired us for the use of steel drum barrels and tin cans for a collection of chairs and lamps.
Scrap yards are also fascinating places. In a country where vehicles are mostly second hand imported cars from Western Europe are to be found everywhere. We explored these places and found car bonnets that reveal inspiring colour textures on their hidden side once they are cleaned and the metal reinforcements are removed.
All the collections we design are the result of such encounters and experiments.
