But after two months of confinement, rediscovering people, places, pushing the doors and enjoying seeing Paris will be wonderful. Moreover, it is the goal of each visitor during Paris Design Week, this edition will take on a special flavor.
Paris is an international springboard for young designers. The event inspires committed and creative movements. The exhibition of design talents will take on a new dimension this year. A talent factory that will flourish in the heart of the Marais.


Formerly called OFF, the new dimension is now called the Paris Design Week Factory, explained Franck Millot. It is the epicenter of the PDW, which was organized during previous editions in “La cité de la mode et du desgin ” in Paris. Then then settled in Ground Control at Gare de Lyon.
A roaming which continued until the rue vertbois, which was invested, so that the exhibitors show their new collections to the general public.

For the 10th edition, it’s the move.

The PDWF moved to the Marais, at 116 Turenne, and the Froissart gallery, in collaboration with Galerie Joseph.

3 places are invested to allow these new meetings.

The Froissart space will exhibit the Rising Talent Awards. The whole African continent will be in the spotlight. A single place that will give the young African guard as a whole the opportunity to come forward in September.

116 Turenne will make its unique space available to French and foreign design schools. To present a selection of the creations of their young graduates.
Each course will be able to illustrate, specify its DNA and present its ideas. Former students may possibly exhibit.
In the gallery, a series of lectures produced by Chantal Hamaide will be presented with designers and architects. In partnership with Mini cars. A “Mini Living” studio will record the lectures live and play them back in the form of a podcast.

Common spaces, the place of the age of reason. It is so named because the designers who were selected from the Rising Talent Awards in previous years: Americans, French, British, and Chinese will come back to explain their work.
We will know what has become of them. It is an opportunity for professionals and the public to meet and learn from them. Paris Design Week has followed them throughout their careers. And each year we observe a great maturity.

“Constraints give birth to opportunities. Habits that will remain. And we will be able to draw what is positive from this experience”

(RE) GENERATION: the theme of Paris Design Week 2020

An initiative was launched during confinement by Paris Design Week with the Paris city hall and the Paris workshops. A call for projects for designers, who will offer outdoor installations throughout the capital. In the courtyards, in the gardens …
20 project proposals have already been sent. We can see that there is a desire for everyone to project themselves into the aftermath. Young designers want to express themselves and wish them luck. Because their ambitions will allow this great event to continue to exist.

And today, as already for 5 years, emerging talents are caring about a subject that rallies all opinions on its side: sustainable development. All industries are on the lookout for innovations. Besides, the public as well as the creative ones, and professionals are looking for new resources in design and material.

“This is a hot topic which highlights the dysfunctions of a globalized system. Where we realize that going to seek resources on the other side of the planet is not viable.” According to Franck Millot.

This is why the theme of the year is RE-GENERATION. It is above all a strong study conducted by the trend office NellyRodi for the 25th anniversary of Maison & objet.
As part of Paris Design Week, the channels association will present the achievements of the companies it supports as part of its exhibition, the circular booster.
A new way to support projects that have a positive impact on the planet and society. As well as engaging with millennials who want to move the lines. Then to upset the codes of consumption in the home and the art of living.

We hope to reinvent things ..

The regeneration theme came in time. Because we say that the exit from the crisis is the time to reinvent things. To reshape a lot of the way we function and create. Hoping that this theme will be taken up by many participants of the Paris Design Week and that it will be illustrated through their creations.

Paris Design Week is an appointment not to be missed, in incredible places in Paris. A new page that turns. And Galerie Joseph will be pleased to welcome you to its atypical spaces in the Marais.
