During the confinement, when family and professional life fused in an unprecedented way, Camille Baudelaire was confronted with having to teach her daughter at home. Learning to read and write became a new terrain of play and exploration for Atelier Baudelaire. Thus began, with the help of the children and using the means available, a project to research, observe and prototype objects that help familiarize them with the world of signs.
From her place of confinement in Britany, Baudelaire brought designers with complementary skills together remotely. Bold Design created 3-D printed prototypes from the Drôme region. Dimitri Charrel (Arp is Arp) updated the essential forms (4 forms and a dot) for composing 26 capital letters. Handling and touching the 3D printed forms in relief facilitates the children’s memorization of the letters. They become familiar with the strokes used to draw the letters and they appropriate the forms in order to construct other worlds.
