VITRINE POUR UN DESIGNER (VP1D for those in the know) is a textile biennial in the form of a competition for young object, fashion and textile designers living and working in the heart of a triangle that links London, Paris and Brussels. The jury of the 6th biennial and their president Constance Guisset selected a winner from amongst the edition’s 9 talented finalists: check out their creations in Hall 4!
Just like a brand new blank page, the very essence of the object, the creator's hand, his/her skill, chosen matter and the time needed to create and to produce will all be highlighted. Organised around four forms of expression, the Ateliers d'Art de France trend forum proposes a moment's respite for you to settle and contemplate objects by fine craft creators.
Imagine a space where you can find all of the latest products from your favourite brands, craftworkers and designers… and one that allows you to get in touch directly with key players in the sector.
