An exhibition curated by Odile Hainaut and Claire Pijoulat; founders of WantedDesign, presented in partnership with the Cultural Services of the French Embassy.

The Transatlantic Creative Exchange is one of the major exhibits of Oui Design. This program, was initiated in 2016 by the Cultural Services of the French Embassy to share the French creativity and savoir-faire with the US and strengthen creative ties and collaboration in the various fields of design. The five participating French-American duos are selected based on overlapping interests, geographic diversity and desire to engage in creative collaboration. The goal of Transatlantic Creative Exchange is to push both designer and manufacturer to shift paradigms, explore technique and innovate boldly as a unified transatlantic design team.

Following a successful first edition in 2016, five new French-American Designer + Manufacturer duos:


Corning Museum of Glass / Glass Lab + designer Pauline Deltour: inspired by the glassblowing technique of cane working displayed at the Glass Lab at the Corning Museum of Glass, French designer Pauline Deltour created a series of container designs that utilized these colorful glass canes as their basis.


Brooklyn based manufacturer UHURU + designer Constance Guisset: in their first ever experience collaborating with a transatlantic partner, UHURU and Constance Guisset Studio were able to merge bold organic materials, wood and cast metal in a table design that conveys softness, harmony and elegance.


Ateliers Pinton, France + designer David Weeks Studio: the tapestry David Weeks Studio has designed in conjunction with Pinton vividly represents a successful Transatlantic creative dialogue; for the studio’s design, David harkened to one of Pinton’s iconic motifs: flowers.


La Manufacture Cogolin, France+ designer Jason Miller: Jason Miller’s modernist-influenced style, sense of materials, and authentic expression are a natural fit with La Manufacture Cogolin. The collaboration between Jason and La Manufacture Cogolin was based on expressing modern craft and design through the language of original technology.


Fondation d’entreprise Hermès / cristallerie Saint-Louis + designer and glassmaker DH McNabb: from August 2015 to March 2016, David Hughes McNabb was guest artist at cristallerie Saint-Louis at Saint-Louis-lés-Bitche, France, where he was invited to conceive a new set of works in conjunction with the Fondation d’entreprise Hermès, learning about the special techniques used by artisans in the hot-and-cold working processes, applying these to artworks steeped in scientific, literary and philosophical references.

As part of Oui Design, a program initiated by  the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the United States, supported by Institut Français-Paris, the French Ministry of Culture and Communication, FACE Foundation, the Florence Gould Foundation, Van Cleef & Arpels, Air France.
