Every year for the last 13 years, the Agence pour la promotion de la création industrielle (APCI, Agency for the Promotion of Industrial Design) has organised the “Observeur du design” in order to reward innovative and inventive projects. In total, 29 projects were recognised, of which a dozen touched on the housing, urban planning and construction sectors.
An exhibition is currently being held at the Cité des Sciences et de l’Industrie in Paris, entitled “Design, where are you?” The exhibition presents a selection of 170 projects with the aim of providing a better understanding of design and its areas of application. Different sectors are represented, including transport, housing, fashion, high-tech products, professional equipment and furniture. It will also be possible to discover the stars of the Observeur du design here.
