La French Tech at MoMA Design Stores

Part of Oui Design 2018

Veritable® Smart Indoor Garden (MoMA Exclusive) by Chloé Verneuil, 2016

This spring in conjunction with NYCxDesign, New York City’s annual celebration of design, MoMA Design Store will shine a spotlight on the dynamic French tech startup scene. Emmanuel Plat, Director of Merchandising for MoMA Retail, and his team collaborated with La French Tech, an innovative public policy initiative that has fostered the booming French startup community, to select over twenty of the country’s most innovative new technology products. The full collection will go on view and be available for sale starting May 10 at the store’s Soho and Midtown locations as well as online at store.moma.org.

La French Tech au MoMA will include a dynamic roster of programming, including an ongoing series of in-store product activations and a panel discussion bringing together French entrepreneurs and business leaders.

Over the past 5 years, the French tech community has grown exponentially and become the most dynamic in Europe. La French Tech, together with Business France, the agency supporting the international development of the French economy, are two key players that have made this possible. To showcase French innovation, talent, and creativity, and to further the incredible momentum in the French startup ecosystem, La French Tech collaborates with MoMA Design Store upon bringing the most iconic technology designs to New York city.

The selection of products at MoMA Design Store will focus on everything from travel and audio to gaming and children’s toys, with highlights including the Vaonis Stellina Smart Telescope; a Wifi and Bluetooth speaker by tech accessories brand Native Union in collaboration with heritage speaker brand La Boite Concept; Stereocap’s customizable headphones; a smart expandable suitcase from X-tend; and Lunii’s choose your own adventure kids’ storyteller.
