HBAFH @ Paris Design Week 2011


Twice a year, Paris hosts Maison + Objet, a world-famous interior design trade fair. Trouble is, these things tend to see companies lavish stunning visual experiences on industry insiders only, leaving the likes of you and me out in the cold. Like London Fashion Week is now followed by Fashion Weekend, Paris have launched Design Week in an attempt to readdress that balance. Coordinating events across the city that range from glitzy cocktail receptions at swish establishments to arty exhibitions to design shops merely flagging their presence for attention, it was a fabulous way to explore the city through international design. Here are my snaps from the series of exhibitions at the Cité de la Mode et du Design, including Dessine-Moi le Japon, commissioned artworks in aid of the earthquake.
