Paris • Since its inception, COLLECTIBLE collaborates, within and outside its walls, with design institutions and foundations and international design events, leading to groundbreaking commissions and curated projects. COLLECTIBLE Curates is born from this series of initiatives to embrace all those projects.
COLLECTIBLE, the Brussels fair dedicated to contemporary collectible design, is taking part in Paris Design Week once more, following a successful first iteration last year at the 107Rivoli, the boutique at the MAD (Musée des Arts Décoratifs de Paris). This time with a larger show at the Espace Commines, situated in Le Marais in the heart of Paris, more than 20 designers will be presented in a scenography by Rotterdam-based architect Atelier Tomas Dirrix, based on the one he developed for the March edition of COLLECTIBLE in Brussels.
COLLECTIBLE called on local design expert Kristen de la Vallière, founder of the curatorial platform, say hi to_, to host four days of design discovery in their Paris iteration of COLLECTIBLE Curates. Kristen will liaise with visitors who want to learn more about the functional artists and work in the exhibition or merely to discuss the current collectible design scene. ***
