Back to the LABELS VIA 2015 Exhibition
The exhibition Labels VIA 2015 includes a selection of French designs showing the collaboration between industry and the expanding creative scene.
The 34 presented products and initiatives are devoted to the necessary collaboration that must exist between creatives (designers, architects, interior designers, decorators, etc.) and industrial producers, manufacturers, artisans, editors and/or distributors.
All these actors share their skills and vision to innovate and to offer different responses that would be in harmony with our times in terms of usage, new materials, new technologies or business strategies.
