atelier LUMA Arles
Collaborative Production Workshop
atelier LUMA is a collective of projects using specific tools, processes and resources belonging to the Pays d’Arles. Bringing together designers and makers from across Europe, atelier LUMA seeks to be an incubator for innovation, by bridging between the international and the local.
OOZE has been working with atelier LUMA to define their spatial strategy and also to give this strategy architectural form. The space is structured and defined by modular elements: shelves, tables and spaces. These elements form a flexible and architectural system, a form of toolbox by which to create and define different working environments. Able to shift and restructure, the system can adapt to different needs.
Atelier LUMA is designed as a spectrum of spaces, encouraging involvement of the public as well as collaboration and community building among the makers. It is an educational as well as a productive space where makers can experience themselves as a group. There are specific zones where experts have access to the specialist spaces they need, a shared zone where projects come together to share tools, resources and knowledge, and a public zone, where projects are displayed and visiting and engagement of the public is made possible.
