The pieces displayed in “PRISUNIC AND DESIGN, a unique adventure” come from museums and private collections, while models no longer in existence have been meticulously reproduced especially for the show. There are also lithographs, numbered and signed by Alechinsky, Pierre Messagier… The exhibition, designed by architect and stage designer Yves Gradelet (VIA), evokes the crucial role played by this ingenious experiment, at a major turning-point in the history of household furnishing design. It also brings us up to the present day and current ways of seeing the democratization of furniture design.
In order to share this unique experience, VIA and the Maison&Objet salon will be presenting to professionals, from France and abroad, a temporary and specific exhibition. It will be held during the next session of the fair, from 5th to 9th September 2008, and installed at the entrance to Hall 6. The exhibit will include emblematic pieces taken from the Prisunic catalogue, all of them created by the great designers of the times. It is our hope that this exhibit will give our foreign guests a chance to gain deeper insights into an amazingly creative period which was so crucial for the history of French design.
