Japan, landofinspiration

Villa Kujoyama has just turned 30 years old. About twenty designers have experienced residencies within its walls during a stay that has questioned their practices as much as those of the local community. Since then, other cooperation programs have been developed. What if, in its relationship to craft and material, Japan was a source of inspiration for a transition to contemporaneity?

With Hedwige Gronier, in charge of the cultural patronage of the Bettencourt-Schueller Foundation, Sumiko Oé-Gottini, consultant, expert in arts and crafts, Lauriane Duriez, director of the Ateliers de Paris and Elsa Pochat, designer.

Reissue: revive or reinvent

Reissuing collections requires constant adaptations that customers do not perceive, expecting the targeted icon to be functional as well. A challenge for the integrated design team. How do you choose a reprint? Between heritage and the fight against programmed obsolescence, a sharing of experiences and points of view.

With Karin Gintz, director of Vitra France, Jacques Barsac (Charlotte Perriand reissues at Cassina), Jason Brackenbury, director of Flos France, Marie-Line Salançon, director of MyDesign.

Art & design, possible synergies

In international programs, recent galleries and foundations, design is becoming a sector considered in its own right and is joining other artistic disciplines in increasing crossovers. A way shown by other countries?

With Béatrice Masi, director of Spaceless Gallery, Olivier Ibañez, director of communications at the Carmignac Foundation, Gaëtan Bruel, director of the Villa Albertine, and Clélie Debehault, co-founder of Collectible in Brussels.
