If you are ready for the next step, we have the perfect design events for you (and yes, the plural wasn’t a mistake!). This June, France is going to come alive with three different celebrations of design – but still deeply connected with each other’s. We are talking about Design Parade Hyères, Design Parade Toulon, and Nouvelles Vagues. Each year these showcase the best of the design world, each of them highlighting a different field. Hyères was the first city to host an event in 2006, willing to create a setting in which professionals, experts, and visitors could enjoy the contemporary designpresented at the event. Later, in 2016, even Toulon launched its own event, focused instead on interior design. Every one of them, moreover, every year launch a competition between 10 young designers, to support and share their visions. Do you want to know more? Keep reading our DESIGN PARADE 2019 EVENT GUIDE!

Villa Noailles will wait for its guest, while the city of Toulon will divide itself between Design Parade and Nouvelle Vagues: the Centre Pompidou presents an exhibition – linked to the Design Parade – in a set designed by India Mahdavi and more than sixty pieces gathered from the Centre Pompidou.
WHAT YOU CAN’T MISS
FRANÇOIS CHAMPSAUR EXHIBITION
Reprise des discussions naturelles
Based on the destructive relationship between men and nature, this exhibition tries to put emphasis on the society’s faults and its consumeristic approach in every aspect of life. The aim is to rethink our behaviour as species and let nature reclaim its space.
MARIE-MARIE VERGNE & JEANNE MARTIN TATON EXHIBITION
“Ode to maximality, to dispersion. Ornaments as an environment”.
Inspired by avant-garde Russians and the decors of the Bauhaus, the artists inspired a connection between object and how they interact with the architecture surrounding them. They created a shop as a theatre for objects, in which textiles have been put upon all the surfaces, to let them engage freely with the “minor art”.
