The second annual Paris Design Week will be held from the 10th to the 16th of September. Looking at the fantastic success of the event’s debut in 2011, which saw over 60,000 visitors at more than 100 participating venues, people are looking forward to this year’s event with great anticipation. The Design Week promises to transform Paris into a whirlwind of innovation and excitement, complete with themed pathways, brilliant new venues and an even greater program than last year.
Professionals from the international design sphere will be flocking to Paris en masse to attend the event, as key players collaborate to show the true scope and power of innovation in this great city. An enthralling range of displays and discoveries await the general public, who are invited to explore the various exhibitions and to experience for themselves the exciting new products available from the hottest brands today.
Never known to compartmentalize design, Paris Design Week is a haven for creativity and design in all its forms. From the obvious fields of fashion and graphic art to the more unique aspects of culinary and object oriented design, this year’s event promises to be a spectacular kaleidoscope of ideas and innovation. The Design Week spreads across multiple industries, including not only the commercial and specialized, but also the cultural and general as well.
Paris Design Week of 2012 promises to bridge the gap between professionals in the design world with the general public. It follows hot on the heels of the MAISON&OBJET trade show (which takes place between September 7-11th), and precedes the, meaning that the attention of buyers and the spotlights of the press are already trained on Paris. Design Week simply provides a bridge from one creative event to the next, providing yet one more outlet for creators and a unique experience for an excited (and growing) audience of customers.
Of all the events, one of the most highly anticipated is the le Off exhibition which returns again this year. One of the notable goals of Paris Design Week is to be a springboard for young creativity. This intention is reinforced throughout the event as prizes are handed out to notable new talents and outstanding innovation in creativity and design.
While the event in 2011 was structured according to geographical areas, this year the Paris Design Week organizers have changed the route up (yet another show of brilliant creativity). The various participating venues, including studios and showrooms, institutions and galleries, restaurants and hotels, will be linked by themed pathways. The goal is to expose visitors to unique and particular aspects of creativity in each key themed area. Aspects range from a fantastic children’s sector to digital creativity to regional creativity, such as the Scandinavian theme.
This is truly one of the peak activities to do this season in the capital of France. Whether you are into design, or just enjoy getting to know the last tendencies of design, this is the right place to come alone or with the entire family.
