Students in Monaco will benefit from a new space at the Villa Paloma (NMNM) museum, providing a state of the art area for workshops.
Called ‘The Studio’, the room was officially presented by its designers Adrien Gadet and Benjamin Lina from Studio Quetzal, in the presence of Patrice Cellario, Minister of the Interior, and Marie-Claude Beaud, Director of the New National Museum of Monaco.
The Studio boasts a range of new technologies including digital screens, video projector, and even a digital drill. It is built of cork and glass, inspired by archaeological sites and in keeping with the purpose of the room as a place for research and experimentation. Students here will be able to perform work within the various NMNM exhibitions.
Uniquely designed wooden tables and chairs are fully modular, allowing for a large number of assembly possibilities, in accordance with the needs of the different workshops.
Winners of the Van Cleef & Arpels Grand Prix at the first edition of the Design Parade in Toulon, Studio Quetzal collaborated with Villa Noailles and the Georges Pompidou Centre in various architectural workshops.
Meanwhile, places are still available for the “Portrait for draft” workshops from July 15 to 19 (7-9 years and 10-12 years) and “Footprints of plants” from July 23 to 26 (10-12 years).
