8 THEMED WALKS

200 participating venues (design showrooms, galleries, workshops, restaurants, hotels, museums, and institutions) come together throughout 4 neighborhoods (Saint-Germain-des-Prés, Les Halles-Marais-Bastille, Opéra-Concorde-Etoile and Barbès-Stalingrad) to unveil a multidisciplinary approach to design with exhibits, pop-up installations, and unprecedented product presentations.

  • #Savoir-Faire
    A circuit where industrial strictures give way to hand-made intelligence.
  • #Iconic Design
    Icons of design and their boutiques.
  • #Fooddesign

  • #Fashiondesign
    Design is in fashion, and fashion feels the design love, too.

LE OFF, the exhibit that shines a spotlight on new talent!

As it does each year, this exhibit that is a breeding ground for young talent, LE OFF, infuses a new neighborhood with fresh energy.
At the very heart of Paris, in the north of the Marais, at 46 rue du Vertbois, a 400 m2 space will be dedicated to the creations of a new generation of 50 Millennial designers.
Around ten boutiques will be taken over by the unprecedented prototypes and collections of talents from all over the world.

THE TALKS

And last, but not least, four September encounters taking place during PARIS DESIGN WEEK will bring together designers, entrepreneurs, makers/editors, and manufacturers around the “HYBRID” theme. Four talks will come to grips with matters of current interest, presented by Chantale Hamaide.

  • The hybridization of workspaces.
    Mobility, connectivity, and autonomy are all reshaping new concepts in workspaces,
    a major creative challenge for designers, manufacturers, and architects.
  • Mobility in urban areas.
    Cities are spaces for cohabitation and innovation as relates to mobility of all kinds.
    We look ahead to investments that require the creation of individual and collective tools.
  • Characteristics and profiles of materials.
    The generation or processing of materials, whether recrafted or natural,
    have an impact on use and resources. Designers, architects, and manufacturers are optimizing processes and usage.
  • From self-production to serial production.
    Designers and interior designers are opening up manufacturing to new practices.
    These experiences are expanding and diversifying their creative output and their professional contacts, whether they are artisans, makers, gallery owners, or industrial firms.
