DE STIHL CAMP Olivier Lellouche, Olivier Lebrun & Maori Murota

De Stihl Camp’s idea revolves around a machine that produces steam for energy. Hot water baths and pressure cookers can initially be producing bentwood. The steam will loosen the fibers of wood to make it soft. The device goes far beyond a mere tool of production because the steam can also be used to prepare a meal as well as to power a sauna. The machine becomes a reason for making a social connection in a low-tech and slow context: we produce, we eat, we relax.
The machine will start to function at 12am. Water from a nearby source will be boiled in big casseroles and steam will be canalized into the ‘steambox’ where solid wood is placed to get soft. After approximately one hour, around 1pm, the machine will be ready for cooking. Chef Maori Murota had created two attractive recipes to be cooked in the machine and every body is welcome to join us during lunchtime. The De Stihl Library will be installed in the gallery space for visitors to read the documentation about the process of how the project started and further more, how to interact with nature and energy as tools for production. Around five, tea time will be a perfect moment to relax and speak while we wait for the sauna to be heated.
