Paris Design Week, 8-16th September 2017

Our favourite things

Organised by the Maison et Objet trade fair, Paris Design Week is here to show us all the smart and beautiful things coming soon.

There are design walks (one in the area around our hotels in Saint-Germain-des-Prés), an ‘off’ selection at the Docks (which is also close to our hotels), a big opening party with cocktails in Saint-Germain-des-Prés on 7th September (again close to our hotels), the RADO StarPrize for designer objects (and you can vote)…

Here’s all the info!

The Maison et Objet trade fair is essential for more everyday items, but if you’re looking for the future of design, it’s the Paris Design Week you should concentrate on.

The event transforms Paris into a huge design exhibition, with 200 venues taking part, themed areas to explore and lots of interesting events:

– At Hôtel de Ville, there’s a free exhibition called Design & Artisanat d’Art, open every day except Sundays from 10am-6.30pm (note that it will be closed from 25th-27th September inclusive)
– Our neighbour, the Institut du Monde Arabe, has got together withParis Design Week to organise the second Biennale des Photographes du Monde Arabe Contemporain in eight Parisian venues.
