The halieutic segment (fish farming, aquaculture) is currently one of the fastest-growing food markets. It could also open many doors to designers... It's no surprise to learn that French designer Lucile Viaud's marine glass project has just received a "Observer" label, and is shortlisted for the "stars" awarded each year by the Observeur du Design. Recently launched through a crowdfunding campaign, she had first imagined the concept of this series, made out of fish and aquaculture products (halieutic design) such as oyster shells, while studying at the prestigious Ecole Boulle in Paris in 2015.

Austrian-American sculptor Erwin Hauer passed away on December 22, 2017, aged 91. Born in 1926, in Vienna, he studied at the Rhode Island School of Design then was invited by Josef Albers to study at Yale University in 1956. Mixing modularity with a mathematical expressiveness, inspired by Henry Moore and the Constructivist sculptors Naum Gabo and Antoine Pevsner, Hauer cast his architectural sculptures from molds in concrete, gypsum and acrylic resin. His screens became emblematic of modernism.
