December 18, 2009

VIA (Valorisation of innovation in furnishing) will celebrate its 30th anniversary in January 2010.
For this special occasion, VIA and the Pompidou Centre will be presenting an exhibition
“VIA Design 3.0”, which is to be held from December 16th, 2009 to February 1st, 2010.

As such, around forty prototypes will be exhibited, which together constitute pieces which are the most highly representative of French design applied to the living environment, created over the past thirty years. Of particular interest will be the chance to discover the very first creations from Philippe Starck, Martin Szekely, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, Matali Crasset, Mathieu Lehanneur, François Azambourg, Philippe Rahm, etc…
