Picnic by Nicole Marion & Chris Wiebe (2020)
Picnic located in Downtown Winnipeg (Graham Ave.)
by Nicole Marion (Studio Marion) and Chris Wiebe (AtLRG Architecture Inc.) from Winnipeg, MB
Picnic is inspired by the humble picnic table, chopped, kinked and overlapping. It offers comfort to anyone who finds themselves on Graham Avenue for a little, or a long while. It is for restaurant patrons, bus stop waiters, bike parkers and passers-by.
Reflection Station by Sophia Tang & Hans-Christian Buhl (2020)
Reflection Station located in Pinawa, MB
by Sophia Tang and Hans-Christian Buhl (Sophie & Hans) from Berlin, Germany
Reflection Station is a compilation of furniture that reflects the enchanting boreal forest, while also revealing the human transformation of nature. The materiality of the furniture merges and disappears into the surroundings.
The different forms allow for an array of activities for the forest meanderers. Whether you would want to simply lean and look around, to sit and read a book, or lay and soak in the surrounding topiary beauty.
