Ampersand Provence

Ampersand specialises in "le Slow Design" using both traditional and modern techniques.

What is Slow design?

Slow Design refers to the approach of the designer to create and propose designs and objects balancing individual needs and desires with socio-cultural and environmental needs, rather than the object of the design, combining positive synergies between each element in a system and cultivating diversity and  regionalism.


The movement Slow Design, began in 1986, inspired by the Slow Food movement, a protest against an era of fast food, quick preparations and consumption.  It was created by Alastair Fuad-Luke in 2002, is a holistic design approach proposing tailored solutions for the long-term well being of people and the planet.
