Curated by Anna Loporcaro and Portuguese designer Bruno Carvalho within the framework of Design City 2014, the exhibition Never for Money, Always for Love questions the validity of the methodologies and traditional production methods employed in the field of design to meet new challenges posed by the contemporary political and social context, including the economic crisis and dwindling natural resources. Conceived as a platform for exchange between two art scenes, the exhibition brings together fourteen designers from Portugal and Luxembourg in the Henry J. and Erna D. Leir Pavilion at Mudam, who, by integrating a critical and responsible approach into their design practice, are reinventing modes of creation and production.
Les M Studio consider the excessive amount of water used by toilet flushing systems, an area in which Luxembourg currently has one of the highest consumption in Europe. Their project Balise is an elegant ceramic buoy which displaces water in the cistern and at the same time it is more corrosion-proof and durable than the objects which are normally placed in a cistern.
