Time flies! Held once a year, PARIS DESIGN WEEK is already in its third edition as a high- profile event.
This coming Fall, when the city announces its latest new releases, when trendmakers flock to the trade shows and the general public shares the European Heritage Days (on 14 and 15 September), the design world gather its energies.
Creative energies are countless thanks to institutions and schools, celebrities and pioneers, young entrepreneurs and the interest of a growing number of fans; design does well in France.
Paris Design Week is a nice taster ahead of London Design Festival . Our personal favourites to see are as always colette, Foundation Cartier , Habitat 64 and The Carpenters Worshop with Rick Owens but there’s over 236 participants in 150 venues below is the press release:
The new edition of Paris Design Week reveals new talents and shows its desire to make a difference. This ambition is passed on by the birth of the Fédération Française de Design at the Carrousel du Louvre, and by the wealth of partnering events, such as Révélations at the Grand Palais, the window displays dedicated to design at Lafayette Maison or even the Lost In Paris exhibition at Le Lieu du Design. These special events highlight the link between design and arts and crafts, decoration and fashion.
PARIS DESIGN WEEK reminds us that design impacts everything and everyone and that in Paris, more than anywhere else, it takes on the colours of the art of living. In the city and its inner suburbs, 236 participants in 150 venues open their doors to illustrate this impact. Institutions, studios, workshops, galleries, stores, markets, hotels and restaurants outline seven creativity journeys that show the involvement of design in our daily life.
PARIS DESIGN WEEK gives new impetus to the city in the race to become a world’s creative capital city and is a good opportunity for the city to show its boldness and talents.
