2m26 was established in 2015 by architects and artists, Mélanie Heresbach and Sébastien Renauld, and is currently based in Kyoto. The artist unit worked on furniture design and architectural design based on the standard dimensions of Modulor advocated by Le Corbusier. In addition to design, they explore about cities through a variety of approaches such as performance and workshops. With an interest in generating communication through using furniture as a tool, they hold furniture-making workshops with simple processes. Recent major works include “SAIKODAYO” (Shizuoka, 2017), “Alternative Space Core” (Hiroshima, 2017), “2m26 Kyoto House” (Kyoto, 2020). Major performances include "TOKYO CROSSING" (Tokyo, 2015).
