Our objective in this major overhaul of the CRAFT arts and crafts area was to reveal the formidable potential of artistic craftsmanship, whilst providing pertinent solutions to new market needs. This ambitious project was led by Ateliers d’Art de France in partnership with SAFI / MAISON&OBJET.
Ateliers d’Art’s creative offering has been grouped by market sector: tableware; jewellery and fashion accessories; lighting, furniture and wall decorations; sculptures and collector’s items, in a clear and inspirational presentation facilitated by architect Philippe Boisselier’s exhibition design.
If you want to take a breather, CAFÉ BY CRAFT is a warm and convivial venue that hosts events and which is the ideal meeting place.
For a more immersive experience in the world of CRAFT, special exhibition zones are dotted around the area in places where there is the most traffic. They showcase monumental or more intimate pieces by creators, enriching for example the tableware selection, or aimed at visitors who collect unique pieces.
The uniquely different pieces made by artists and craftsmen have an extraordinary potential to attract, one that the new CRAFT area intends to highlight by showcasing its wealth and diversity through a fluid itinerary that gives pride of place to the exhibitors’ creations.
