Nomadic collective ‘ELDERS’ commissioned 51N4E and League Studio for the design of a temporary bar and exhibition space in Kortrijk, at the end of 2022. The chosen site was a combination of abandoned commercial spaces and courtyards. The project was shaped by a series of openings that facilitated the permeability and allowed to link the constellation of sites, defining a pathway for the exhibition. The theme of hole and connection became also a way to reveal oddness of the buildings, layers of uses and histories and so forth. Several devices were then designed and produced in aluminium, to negotiate the use of the space as a bar, such as a suspended table, a chandelier to hang glasses and a wall shelf to set down a glass while having a tour.
