Designer Days give both visitors and residents of Paris an overload of chic style in the City of Light. For 2014, the design festival is organized around the theme “movement” as numerous design establishments open their doors to the public. From Baccarat and LaFayette Maison to La Redoute and Hermès, the most stylish shops are participating in the Designer Days festival. During this time, studios, shops and museums will reveal unique pieces such as La Grande Motte by Oxyo (pictured above).
Guests staying at the Hôtel de la Tour Maubourg should not hesitate to visit participating venues, which will have special displays set up during the festival. Some shops, like Hermès for example, have planned special conferences and debates that allow visitors to learn more about the art of design. Debates and discussions known as D’Talks will also take place at the Gaîté Lyrique, bringing together various design professionals attempting to get to the bottom of the industry’s most pressing issues.
The festival is arranged as a journey that allows participants to stroll from the Left Bank to the Right Bank of Paris, or vice versa. In total, there are 90 spots that can be visited along the way. What’s more, 10 museums also take part in the festival, giving participants an extra dose of culture.
Artists’ studios will also be exceptionally open to the public for those who wish to get a glimpse at how beautiful design pieces are made. Lilly Latify, Thierry Poubeau and Emma Roux are just a few of the artists that can be discovered.
Visitors can find the entire agenda, including a map of all participating venues on the Designer Days website. The event runs from May 19 until May 25, 2014.
