Oui Design 2017

When
Apr 25-Sep 3, 2017

Second edition of Oui Design, a program part of the French Embassy’s initiative to enhance French-American exchange in the field of design.

 

A cluster of diverse workshops, exhibitions, and talks resulting from Oui Design-driven collaborations will take place in New York from April 25 to Sept. 3, 2017.

Launched in 2016, Oui Design is a multifaceted program developed by the Cultural Services of the French Embassy that aims to foster creative exchange in the sphere of design between France and the U.S. It is the first program initiated by the French Embassy to support fruitful and durable partnerships between design professionals on both sides of the Atlantic.

The program supports and initiates creative collaborations among designers, artisans, curators, inventors, researchers, teachers, students, and manufacturers. It also brings French designers to the U.S. to exhibit their work, and to engage with industry professionals and the public.

The first edition of the program took place during the framework of NYCxDESIGN in May 2016 in New York City. Oui Design co-presented over 20 events, which welcomed thousands of design enthusiasts and professionals at WantedDesign in Brooklyn and Manhattan; the Museum of Arts and Design; Cooper Hewitt, and the Smithsonian Design Museum, among other prestigious arts institutions.

The Paris-based graphic design duo Antoine+Manuel was invited to create this year’s Oui Design visual identity, drawing inspiration from construction games and decomposing forms.
