American Design in Paris

For the first time, Mona Bismarck American Center for Art & Culture in Paris opens its doors from May 19 to 25 to showcase “American Design“, an exhibition overviewing the current American creation.

Both young independent designers (Bec Brittain, Anna Karlin, Fort Standard, Matt Gagnon …) as established companies or promising young ones (Emeco, Knoll, Juniper, Neal Feay, Roll & Hill’s …) will be shown. The initiative has emerged to promote awareness of the major players in contemporary American design.

In the US,  WantedDesign, an  international exchange program, showcases dynamic contemporary creations in the United States. In France, the Parisian showroom Triode has given visibility to young American designers over the last several years.
