Via Design 3.0 exhibition at Pompidou Centre

14th January 2010, Comments 0 comments

The Pompidou Centre turns to design with Via Design 3.0, bringing together some 40 French furnishing prototypes produced over the past three decades.

The Centre Pompidou is offering an exhibition entitled VIA Design 3.0, which presents around 40 prototypes selected from among the most representative pieces of French design and created in the course of the last 30 years.

The exhibition is an occasion to discover the first creations by Philippe Starck, Martin Szekely, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, Matali Crasset, Mathieu Lehanneur, François Azambourg, Philippe Rahm... as well as pieces by Gaetano Pesce and even Andrée Putman.

In order to emphasise the consistency of this initiative, the young talents of today and tomorrow, which were recently revealed by VIA, will represent a large part of this exhibition. Videos (reports on creation trends, the importance of innovation, interviews, etc.) will also be shown.

A selection of pieces from this unique collection of prototypes will be offered to the Centre Pompidou and will thus enrich a design collection which already comprises of almost 3,000 pieces.
