An edition that wants to do good

The dominant theme of this edition is to refocus on oneself and others, to meet, exchange and experiment. The show wants to echo new modes of creation and meaningful initiatives concerning the professions of design and interior decoration. Each day, a program of talks will address, among other things, creation without fossil fuels, sensory design, the concept of hospitality, innovative creative paths, retail scenography…
