Their way of treating objects, and removing design from the world of luxury was a big hit. Visitors had the impression of being at a flea market, surrounded by the unpretentious, run-of-the-mill paraphernalia of daily life. 5.5’s latest appearance at the Salon du Meuble in Paris in January 2005 showcased “everyday objects in an ordinary apartment”. Their purpose this time was to give a facelift to mass-produced items that lack an image and are consigned to a humdrum existence or forgotten in cupboards - without promoting material overabundance. Vincent Bonillo of La Corbeille produced some items in the collection, including the “lemon-squeezer for a star”, an ordinary lemon-squeezer perched on a tripod, a send-up of Philippe Starck’s “Juicy Salif” design for Alessi. He takes coat hangers out of the closet and groups them together to create a functional coat rack. His “Lampe branchée” (“Switched-on lamp”) plugs directly into a socket. And his cup handle made of sugar makes coffee time a moment of sheer delight.
