From 1 December 2016 to 27 February 2017, a Pop-up winter garden is set up in the "Aquarium" of Casino Luxembourg - Forum d'art contemporain, for three months. For the event, this glass-panelled, spacious area hosts furniture and small decorative items by Luxembourgish designers and two associations from Lorraine. The joint project has been launched by Casino Luxembourg and the ca(fé)sino, in collaboration with Design Friends.
Conceived as a temporary extension of the ca(fé)sino in the "Aquarium" space during the winter months, the Pop-up winter garden is also an exhibition of Luxembourgish and Lorrain design, combining a café-restaurant with a showroom. Clients are invited to taste ca(fé)sino specialities - seasonal dishes, savoury snacks, cakes and pastries, and other tasty treats - while enjoying design pieces which they could discover, use, and even, in some cases, purchase!

Monobloc tells the story of the best-selling piece of furniture of all time. Estimates claim there are a billion of these cheap plastic chairs in use all over the world. This unassuming chair threatens our environment and good taste but is indispensable for millions of people to whom a chair is a chair and nothing more. This is the tale of an object viewed through a critical eye on globalisation - a story that spans functionality and beauty, capitalism and sharing, consumption and recycling.
