As Jean-Paul Bath, director of the FRENCH DESIGN by VIA, “The new generation is now in a position to provide new answers, and to raise new issues in woodland living, the development of original, adaptable and human living spaces. The New Living Wood competition presents forward-looking projects and reflects the trends of tomorrow in our interior design ”.
