bankal.

the initial idea for bankale was founded on the 8th January 1999 after an animated conversation between antoine claux and david stokes.

bankale is a laboratory of reflection and experimentation, exploring the potentially rich interface between man and objects found within the landscape of daily life. on recognition of the current need for an accessible means of expression for designers marginalised by the present market. Thus, bankale, aims to amplify this voice, offering a possibility for communication in both an abstract [intellectual] and real [application] terms.

bankale encourages a polyvalent dialogue, and is willing to establish contacts at every level in order to make this project happen which ultimately will lead to a better understanding of the current design climate. bankale does not pretend to provde tangible solutions, but merely raises questions bankale may or may not change your life.
Some of the many simultaneous points* of departure:

a common interest in ordinary and everyday contexts and and rituels.
playing with ambiguity and borrowing from familiarity with the use of readymade forms, attempting to render the invisible visble.
a positive use of ambiguity which offers free interpretation and therefore amplifies choice.

towards an absolute intervention which discloses little trace of intelligence, a shared desire to reduce the prescence of the generator of the idea in the format of a given / built product to an absolute.
A redefinition of creativity, and exploring process where creative gestures are reduced to moving elements out of their orginal context[s]. and the subsequent renaming of which opens up new interpretations of functional qualities.
