9082 kilometers

9082 kilometers is the distance covered by 10 students on their journey from France to come and live out a new experience here in São Paulo, Brazil. 10 design students came to turn their dream of adventure into a reality, on the theme of Transcultural Design. The collective 9082 kilometers is made up of Élise Bunouf, Chloé Cassabé, Juliette d’Arche, Adèle Darcet, Savina de Chasseval, Léa Drougard, Quentin Fourage, Bérénice Freydier, Timothé Gourdin and Colombe Gourgeon. The 10 students come from various courses ranging from graphic design, industrial and scenography to interior design. Regardless of their studies, they all had the same desire to produce work that reflected their respective perceptions, sensitivities and visions.
