Agora du design
Design research is exhibited at the Arsenal Pavilion with the winners of the Agora grant: Nathanaël Abeille, Martin De Bie, Pablo Bras, Christopher Dessus, Laure Garreau and Samuel Tomatis. Question the production and recycling of our electronic devices and digital technologies; look for micro-sources of energy in individual homes; reread a forgotten exhibition by Jean Prouvé; questioning the act of giving flowers and floral design… these projects make the environment a source of inspiration and creation for exploring and experimenting.

Le Métronome de Servaire & Co
In a staging like a gallery presenting their projects with strong creative resonance, Sébastien Servaire and his team will be happy to unveil “The Metronome: suspended time in continuous movement”. An installation born from a fad of designers – objects thought of as olfactory experiences – some of which have been made on behalf of the Diptyque perfume house. The Metronome was also the central object of an artistic installation as part of the London Design Biennale in June 2021, under the theme of Resonance.
