The first edition of France Design Week
From 1st to 15th September, the first edition of France Design Week was held with more than 250 events organised by the French design community all around the country. Despite of the Covid-19, the participants were plentiful, managing events which were respecting the government rules in this pandemic situation. And it was a success: a proof that people need this joyful time, sharing moments about design and discovering through exhibitions, talks or workshops what is it and how this method can bring value and solutions in this transitional world.
