PARIS DESIGN WEEK, the global event for design lovers in Paris is turning over a new leaf for a surprising 8th edition, from 5 to 15 September 2018!

Held every September, PARIS DESIGN WEEK has become the leading non-professional design event in just eight years. Overlapping with the professional trade fair MAISON&OBJET, PARIS DESIGN WEEK brings together all aficionados of design, interiors and urban lifestyle, from 6 to 15 September.

This year, a wind of change is blowing over the 8th edition of PARIS DESIGN WEEK:
Part of the event, the springboard exhibition Le Off is making a few changes and moving to Ground Control: a creative and experimental living space, unique in Paris.

Echoing MAISON&OBJET’s theme ‘Virtuous’, the theme for the upcoming Rado Star Prize France contest ‘Design Inspired by Nature’ will invite young designers to explore notions like sustainability and material durability.

On the programme this year:

9 themed itineraries to offer a variety of perspectives and inspire a larger number of people:

  • Art & Design: Where objects become sculptures and art becomes functional.
  • Fashion: Where design is fashionable and fashion takes its cue from design.
  • Food: Attention, foodies! Yummy design concepts coming right up!
  • Upcycling: How does design give materials a second chance?
  • Japon: An itinerary that explores the essence of Japanese culture through design.
  • Projets: A dedicated itinerary for interior architects and designers.
  • Savoir-Faire: The most valuable know-how behind the most extraordinary designs.

More than 200 participating venues – design showrooms, shops, galleries, ateliers, restaurants, hotels, museums and other cultural institutions – will join together to celebrate the diversity of approaches in design with exhibitions, temporary installations and new product launches.

The four most vibrant design districts in Paris will be abuzz with celebration: Saint-Germain-des-Prés, Les Halles/Marais/Bastille, Opéra/Concorde/Étoile and Barbès/Stalingrad/Marché aux puces de Saint-Ouen

Five opening nights will be held successively in one of the various districts, offering visitors a chance to discover or rediscover these places where trends are made, mingle with MAISON&OBJET’s professional community and meet the leading names in French and international design.

Les Halles/Marais/Bastille/Marché aux Puces de Saint-Ouen : Saturday 8 September 2018
