Solo | Marianne Kaufmann
C’est le cas de Marianne Kaufmann de la Politechnico di Milano avec qui je n’ai eu l’occasion de travailler que 5 semaines sur le projet de thé Solo que voici. Il s’agit en fait d’un ensemble de trois biscuits et d’une poche de thé pour une petite pause Solo. Each year at UQAM, we host foreign students who bring us a little from another worldview on design and maybe a bit of openness to the world as an essential ingredient of wisdom. However, because of our students strike in Quebec, many foreigned students find themselves in an extremely difficult situation where, despite their best organization efforts time and money spent for this great exchange project, they would only get a few weeks of classes. I must say that I'm very sorry for them and I am frankly embarrassed about this situation.
It is the case of Marianne Kaufmann from Politechnico di Milano with whom I have had the opportunity to work but only for five weeks on the Solo tea concept. This is actually a set of three cookies and a tea bag packaged together for a short “Solo” break.
