So Starck, So Bouroullec... so le French Design

Opening during Design Miami, the French project NO TASTE FOR BAD TASTE So Starck, So Bouroullec... so le French Design is showcased in Miami Design District.

In collaboration with the Institut français, VIA (Valorization of Innovation in Furnishing) created a touring show highlighting the best of French Design. 40 international figures from the world of the arts – including a MOMA curator, an Indian designer, a philosopher and fashion designers – have selected their 40 favorite showpieces from the 21st century, considered to be iconic. Framed by Jean-Charles de Castelbajac’s poetic sceno­graphy, the exhibition is a celebration of 40 years of VIA’s support for future design.

Design talk with Noé Duchafour-Lawrence:
As part of the exhibition's program, the multiple award winner, Noé Duchafour-Lawrence, will present his masterpieces. After completing his education in furniture design at the École nationale supérieure des arts décoratifs,  he designed many products for leading companies such as Cinna, Baccarat and Petite Friture. He recently designed the 'Folia' collection for Saint-Louis. Elected designer of the year by Scènes d’intérieur  in Paris,  "Best Designer"  by GQ Men of the year 2012, Duchafour-Lawrence reinvents French Design in his unique and talented way.
