constance guisset has created a series of seats for palais de tokyo. the project, called ‘three conversations,’ provides an inviting area for visitors to chat, observe, and relax amongst the exposed materials of brick, concrete, and steel that construct the space. above the comfortable surfaces, mats are erected supporting a plaiting of straps and carbon circles. these vertical striations serve make references to a dream-like state with swaying color gradients that shift from shades of blue to yellow to pink. each construct is adjustable through the use of a handle located along the side of a pole located in its center. by maneuvering the steel loops up and down, varying degrees of intimacy and enclosure conform to the amount of occupants below.
