SchultzeWORKS designstudios was honored with an invitation to present the PhilcoPC project at the The 2010 Saint-Étienne (France) International Design Biennial, running for two weeks starting November 2, 2010. We were contacted by exhibition curator Mr. Benjamin Loyauté, who informed us that the Philco PC project was already ‘pre-approved’ thanks to the design and media attention it has recently generated.
The Philco PC is proposed to appear in an exhibition area themed ‘Prediction.’ The overall theme of the International Design Biennial’s 6th edition is focused on the notion of Teleportation. This idea deals with society’s current struggles with transportation congestion and the chronic lack of time. Increasing numbers of people are now working from home, empowered by their ability to transfer data and documents to their central office, until the system breaks down and they dream of being back in the office.
