Designer Piergil Fourquié, with the help of Pierre Dubourg and Elise Fauveau, decides to gather a group of young designers he met in the past seven years along his professional career, with the goal of creating a collective where everyone has freedom of self-expression without any hierarchical bond. Thus no design “stars”, no unintelligible text, an accessible design, simple typologies, a genuine spirit reminding everyone that design is a part of everyday life and that every object surrounding us (from the most ordinary to the fanciest), has been thought and designed.
Two teams, each one made of 11 people, face each other on the theme “Wood and Black vs. White and Wood”. In the form of a creative challenge, each team develops wooden objects to be labeled with the team’s color, by adding another material or painting. The goal is to encourage each team’s creativity and to help new talents emerging.
As in a true sport contest, the pieces will confront each other on a ring, in a thrilling head-to-head beneath Louvre’s pyramid.
It will be up to visitors to decide which team will be the winner by voting on the website: www.federationfrancaisededesign.com
The winning team will be awarded the first French Cup of Design at the end of Paris Design Week.
It’s up to you to vote!
