Paris Design week, 9-15 Sept 2013
PARIS DESIGN WEEK reminds us that design impacts everything and everyone and that in Paris, more than anywhere else, it takes on the colours of the art of living. In the city and its inner suburbs, 150 venues open their doors to illustrate this impact. Institutions,studios, workshops, galleries, stores, markets, hotels and restaurants outline seven creativity journeys that show the involvement of design in our daily life.
For its third edition, PARIS DESIGN WEEK enhances its content and unfolds the theme of ENERGIES. The journey takes on a new dimension by opening to new venues. It fosters unexpected and privileged encounters with key designers and instils a festive atmosphere in the various Paris design district evenings.
The new edition want to prove the vitality of the design sector by promoting ultra-dynamic avant-garde designers. As days pass, the spirit of celebration will move from one design district to another, to rediscover the installations of the different participants in a relaxed atmosphere. Here the different districts where the events will be. (c)parisdesignweek/press
