Paris Design Week 2019
Settembre 5 - Settembre 14
Over the course of 10 days, from September 5th to 14th 2019, the French capital will be playing host to Paris Design Week, inaugurating and accompanying the Maison&Objet trade fair.
This ninth edition will boast an abundance of new additions guaranteed to delight anyone with a love for decoration, lifestyle and design. Pop-up installations, previously unseen collections and exciting collaborations are set to be unveiled across 200 different venues, some of which are brand new for this year: showrooms and boutiques, galleries, workshops, restaurants, hotels, museums and institutions…
A real creative melting pot, this year’s Paris Design Week adopts a unified theme that is more relevant than ever: “Hybrid”.
The word “hybrid” conjures up images of crossbreeding two different species, sometimes belonging to the same family, sometimes not. It can also be used to describe a product or object that combines contrasting elements. The art of amalgamation in all its forms is consequently being thrust centre stage. In the world of design and architecture, this word truly comes into its own. Hybridization is something we regularly witness, be it in the combination of manufacturing techniques, the association of unexpected materials, or the bringing together of diverse expertise to work on the same project.
Hybridization in the design sphere can take three different forms:
Functional, imbuing a single item with two different uses;
Aesthetic, marrying two contrasting styles or trends;
Technological, incorporating technology to boost performance.
Paris Design Week invites visitors to immerse themselves in this world of exciting fusions via an eclectic, innovative and decidedly surprising programme…
