Paris Design Week 2013

Until September the 15th, Paris welcomes the Paris Design Week, launched three years ago by the Maison & Objets organisers.

This coming Fall, when the city announces its latest new releases, when trendmakers flock to the trade shows and the general public shares the European Heritage Days (on 14 and 15 September), the design world gather its energies. Creative energies are countless thanks to institutions and schools, celebrities and pioneers, young entrepreneurs and the interest of a growing number of fans; design does well in France.

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, 236 participants in 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.
