Opening May 3, 2017, Demisch Danant will present Innovation: made in France II, an exhibition of important historical French design created between 1965 to 1975, a period of rapid technological advancement that shaped a distinctive new aesthetic in French public and domestic life. Innovation is a continuation of the gallery’s year-long exhibition program made in France, which reintroduces designers from the post-war period and brings to light the importance of their work.

In France, Les Trente Glorieuses, the three-decade period following the end of World War II, was marked by explosive scientific, technological, economic, and social development. Through works by Roger Tallon, Jean-Pierre Laporte, Jean Dudon, Bernard Govin, Oliver Mourgue, Pierre Paulin and Jean-Pierre Vitrac, Innovation at Demisch Danant celebrates the vision and breakthroughs that shaped this creative boom, bringing critical attention to the impact of this revolutionary period in French historical design.

Innovation will explore the period through three lenses: A New Industrial Aesthetic: Roger Tallon, Plastic and the Liberation of Form, and New Lighting Technologies.
