This exhibition celebrates design and its origins. It creates a dialogue between a selection of works from the Louvre (from Antiquity to 1850) and a selection of objects from the design process (from 1850 to the present day). Some pieces are selected for their iconic character; other pieces, perhaps more anonymous, disturbing, celebrate a material or know-how, some of which are linked to the Hauts-de-France region. This dialogue makes concrete the intelligence of the object, the care taken since always to its design, the use of fascinating materials, and is sharing Ronan Bouroullec’s de nition: “Design is everything. that does not grow in the wild. ”
