The Opinel Series will be presented by WantedDesign Brooklyn. Art By Friends invited artists to work on a new material: the Opinel knife. Covered with glitter, changed into a barbers comb, tattooed on an arm or carved on a tree branch, the Savoyard knife is a never ending source of inspiration for the artists. The Opinel knife becomes an object of art.

Artists from all over the world gradually joined the Opinel series using different techniques such as painting, collage, sculpting, drawing, stencil, pyrography. Between 2016 and 2017 the touring exhibition took place in Annecy, Brussels, Bayreuth, Montreal, Geneva, Vicenza, Brooklyn and Lyon.

Founded in 2008 in Annecy, France as an art collective, Art by Friends specializes in the organization of cultural events, artist promotion and curation of travelling exhibitions.
