American Design in Paris

For the first time, Mona Bismarck American Center for Art & Culture opens its rooms on the 1st floor to showcase “American Design,” an exhibition overviewing the current American creation.
Amercian Design’s ambition is to provide an overview of current American Design in Paris. Initiatives have 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 several young American designers.
American Design is presented by Jacques Barret and supported by Odile Hainaut and Claire Pijoulat (WantedDesign) , with AIGA/NY (aigany.org), the Museum of Art and Design (mad.org), The Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum (cooperhewitt.org) and Parsons Paris The New School (paris.parsons.edu).
