” Pour le parfait flâneur, pour l’observateur passionné, c’est une immense jouissance que d’élire domicile dans le nombre, dans l’ondoyant, dans le mouvement, dans le fugitif et l’infini. Être hors de chez soi, et pourtant se sentir partout chez soi, voir le monde, être au centre du monde et rester caché au monde. ”
“For the perfect stroller, for the passionate observer, it is an immense enjoyment to choose one’s home in the number, in the undulating, in the movement, in the fugitive and the infinite. Being out of home and yet feel everywhere at home, see the world, be at the centre of the world and remain hidden from the world. »
