Design Miami 2017 Philippe Malouin
Philippe Malouin
December 2017

At Design Miami/ we are dedicating a booth to Philippe Malouin's monumental sculpture Core, that doubles as a bench.

Malouin’s Core is a mammoth concrete modular system that assembles to become a forcible brutalist structure, functioning as a bench and as a stand-alone sculpture. Its rough-hewn concrete exterior is textured with pebbly aggregate and its curved interior hollows are ground down to a smooth, almost polished finish. Core is Philippe's first architectural work. Malouin lives and works in London, where he operates his award-winning multidisciplinary interior design company, POST-OFFICE.
