FURNISH ME! DIY/ Recycling Product Design Workshop Summer 2009 Prior to its opening in 2010, CASAMARLES has invited 12 international product designers and sculptors to create unique furniture for the house. An exhibition documenting this project is under negotiation.
Invited artists will refurnish the space by using the existing old furniture of the house and other discarded furniture that will be collected in the village and in Barcelona. These workshops are mirrored to the project undertaken in Dublin’s Hotel Ballymun by Seamus Nolan and the furniture by Piet Hein Eek and Nina Telstrup.
