Tecno decides to renew its way of being in Paris, the European capital where the company has been actively working with leading architecture firms since the 1970s, and it does so in great style. In fact, the company selected Maison d’Ozenfant as its headquarters in Paris. This workshop was designed by Le Corbusier in 1922 for the artist Amédée Ozenfant.
The dwelling, as the first residential project for Le Corbusier, expresses a convergence of purposes and ideals between the architect and the artist and becomes the "testing ground” for those concepts that lay the foundations of Le Corbusier's design, giving rise to an architecture philosophy full of purist features and light.
Maison Tecno is intended to be a place where architects, interior designers, and specifiers can meet and relate, and where they can talk and find innovative solutions for new ways of working and living. Here, the company stages its heritage by displaying pieces that have made history such as Osvaldo Boasani's iconic P40s or the Nomos table designed by Foster+Partners, which has become a classic.
Here Tecno also tells the story of its most recent research, the io.T The Intelligence of Tecno system, able to make furnishings intelligent. Examples of these are the Clavis tool-free tables and the Vela family of responsive chairs. In this proposal, a transparent casing surrounded by W80 and W40 partitions acts as conference room and defines the experimental environment to test the potential of io.
Tecno Paris wants to confirm its identity as a “project factory” that contaminates the city and promotes the values of design, excellence, and innovation.
