Ligne 102

On Friday, May 17th, Ligne Roset® debuted Ligne 102, an installation by Bernard Dubois curated by PIN–UP magazine for NYCxDESIGN: the annual celebration of design in New York City. The installation took place at Ligne Roset’s Park Avenue showroom in New York, 250 Park Avenue South from Saturday, May 18th — Sunday June 2nd, 2019, with a private opening event on Friday, May 17th for art and design industry insiders.

Ligne 102, a series of modular objects designed by the Belgian architect Bernard Dubois, used solids and voids to create hard-edged geometrical forms out of the soft, light, and natural construction material: cork. The cork units were based on historical building elements such as arches, pillars, bridge-like structures, trusses, pylons, beams and support systems.

Each cork design represented an individual module that, when combined with each other, formed partitions, raised platforms, tables, or different seating elements, each with a trace of its architectural origin embedded within.

Dubois drew inspiration from architectural history — from Alberti’s Palazzo Rucellai, the pictorial universe of Giorgio de Chirico, Ricardo Bofill’s La Fábrica, or Eduardo Chillida and Luis Peña Ganchegui’s Plaza de los Fueros in Vitoria. Each piece was manufactured by Amorim, the world leader in the cork industry for almost 150 years.

The idea to use cork for construction came from Dubois’ interest in French novelist Marcel Proust’s famous, Parisian cork-lined apartment. He confined himself in this space to create works such as his famous À la recherche du temps perdu (In Search of Lost Time), published in seven parts between 1913 and 1927. Its address, 102, Boulevard Haussmann, also served as inspiration for the project’s name: Ligne 102. Dubois hopes this exploration of cork as an architectural material brings to light its special attributes.
