The Future of Living: Paris
8 Sep −15 Sep 2021
Paris Design Week
As part of Paris Design Week, the Embassy of the Republic of Slovenia in Paris set up an exhibition entitled The Future of Living at the famous Gallery Joseph Paris. Slovenian design garnered a lot of interest, from both the professional and general public.
Paris Design Week, which will take place at several locations in Paris, has been selected to present the new design. On this occasion, new trends are set and different generations of designers are connected, from young to internationally renowned. This year’s theme was “desirable development”, which is also linked to the way out of the difficult crisis period associated with the coronavirus. For Design Week, Paris is completely disguised in the yellow and black colors of the event, with 350 entities participating, from large museums and department stores to art schools, galleries and boutiques, which are visited by hundreds of thousands of visitors each year.
In a special innovative set of Paris Design Week Factory, a smaller version of the exhibition of 35 innovative and sustainable Slovenian products from a total of 90 products that received the “Made in Slovenia” badge of excellence was on display. The Slovenian exhibition was well attended, and Slovenian innovative products received great attention, positive responses and excellent evaluations from both the professional and general public. At the same time, Spirit Slovenija organized a very resounding group presentation of six Slovenian companies at the world’s leading fair for interior design and design, Maison & Objet.
n this occasion, the Embassy of the Republic of Slovenia in Paris also organized a reception, which was attended by over 300 people.
The field of design and interior design is undoubtedly an area where some designers and Slovenian companies have already established themselves well on the French market, but at the same time there is still a lot of open potential.
The Future of Living project was created in cooperation between the Center for Creativity / MAO, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Culture and the Embassies of the Republic of Slovenia abroad. The exhibition, which was on view in Paris between 8 and 15 September 2021, is part of a series of promotional events for the Slovenian Presidency of the Council of the EU.
