Tabloids are series of newspapers that are produced in relation to specific exhibitions. One side of the newspaper pages, patterns (usually determined by elements within the exhibitions) are printed. These are used as wallpapers to designate particular spaces within the exhibition sites. The rest ofthe newspapers are used to present materials that in some way expand or question the conceptual scope of the exhibition.

Notes sur la maison moirée (ou un urbanisme pour des villes qui se vident)
Gean Moreno et Ernesto Oroza
Préface : Victor Lévy
Co-édition : Cité du design et École nationale supérieure d’architecture de Saint-Étienne

Six textes composent Notes sur la maison moirée (ou un urbanisme pour des villes qui se vident). Le premier texte, qui a donné son titre à l’ouvrage, montre comment, face à la pénurie et pour résister à la crise des subprimes aux États-Unis, les individus vont devoir réinventer leur habitat, produire des objets hybrides, bâtir une autre vie quotidienne dont les effets vont déborder sur le paysage urbain et le modifier. « Apprendre de Little Haiti » est l’histoire d’objets provisoires installés par les habitants et les ruses que chacun déploie pour implanter un objet inattendu mais essentiel dans ce quartier de Miami. « Treize façons d’observer un dépôt-vente » dresse un portrait de la consommation et des modes de vie à travers une lecture singulière des objets qui se stratifient dans un dépôt-vente. « Treize façons d’observer une landscape nursery » s’attache à décrire les objets stéréotypés d’une pépinière qui envahissent et transforment le paysage urbain. «Modèles de dispersion : notes sur le projet Tabloid» imagine une fable, celle d’une eau tachée par les teintures de cheveux de vieilles femmes qui se déverse dans la ville. La fable se transforme en réalité avec le projet de dispersion d’un motif de design via un tabloïd dans l’espace urbain. Enfin, « Objets génériques » étudie les paramètres physiques des objets les plus ordinaires (palettes de bois, poubelles urbaines, casiers à lait ou échafaudages) et montre comment ceux-ci conduisent à la construction de systèmes complexes.

Monobloc is the established term for the ubiquitous stackable plastic chair that can be found on patios and in yards, snack bars and campgrounds around the globe. Although despised by design aficionados, it is arguably the most successful piece of furniture in the world. 220°C Virus Monobloc is an entertaining documentation of the love-hate relationship designers have with this chair. In addition to homage paid by renowned designers including Philippe Starck, Jerszy Seymour, Maarten Baas, and Konstantin Grcic, the book presents a range of work, photography, and art that is a tongue-in-cheek take on the phenomenon of this chair.

RIKIMBILI. Une étude sur la désobéissance technologique et quelques formes de réinvention. 2009
Ernesto Oroza

(Préfacier) Marie-Haude Caraës
Traducteur: Nicole Marchand-Zanartu

“PLOUGHSHARES AS TECHNOLOGICAL DISOBEDIENCE (CUBA)
Cite du design is a broad church. Whilst hordes of courtiers flocked around the Minister like starlings at sunset, copies of a subversive new book, by Ernesto Oroza, were being distributed by Cite’s publications team. Rikimbili – “a study of technological disobedience and other forms of re-invention” – describes how Cubans have adapted and recycled industrial objects…
…The book’s title, Rikimbili, is named after a two-wheeled vehicle that started its life as a bicycle. The book is subversive because, for me anyway, it describes the kind of design we’ll be doing in the coming age of scarcity industrialism (a phrase of John Michael Greer). Design shows filled with shiny objects, by contrast, are best perceived as historical events about a pardigm that has passed.”

“Quand nous acceptons le critère bourgeois qui sanctionne la nécessité comme indigne et celui qui exprime ses besoins comme faible et vulgaire, nous participons à la réduction systématique de la créativité et de la liberté qui pourrait se traduire dans la culture contemporaine.” Ernesto Oroza

Rikimbili – “a study of technological disobedience and other forms of re-invention” – describes how Cubans have adapted and recycled industrial objects during fifty years of US sanctions. The book’s title, Rikimbili, is named after a two-wheeled vehicle that started its life as a bicycle.
