The 5.5 designers - Vincent Baranger (born in 1980), Jean-Sébastien Blanc (born in 1980), Anthony Lebossé (born in 1981) and Claire Renard (born in 1980) - aren’t always visible but they have been around since 2003. In collaboration with Secours Populaire Français, a French humanitarian organization that works with the poor, they made a name for themselves with the “Reanim” exhibition at Galerie de la Salamandre in Nîmes. The “Reanim” installation, which was the subject of a short book entitled “Sauvez les meubles” (“Rescue the furniture”) published by Jean-Michel Place, provided medical treatment to scratched, injured and suffering furniture. The 5.5 designers recently repeated this operation for three days at Galerie Peyroulet & Cie on Rue Quincampoix in Paris, where they had previously given just one anecdotal presentation of their collection’s bandages and prostheses at the 2004 Salon du Meuble. Flyers were distributed inviting the neighbourhood’s residents to bring their broken chairs and other furniture to the gallery for treatment and to watch the renovation and treatment operations.
