Les Marches by Smarin

Modular foam seats on a beach for the Cannes Film Festival.

The outdoor furniture will be arranged on top of the rockery of the private C Beach for Quinzaine des Réalisateurs – the Director's Fortnight – an event held alongside the film festival later this month. The modules, which look like slightly squashed rectangles, were designed by Smarin in collaboration with French artist Céleste Boursier-Mougenot to provide a temporary place for people to rest, meet and party during events.
