7th June to 25th August 2017
THE VIA DESIGN INCUBATOR is the birth and development of innovative designer/manufacturer or designer/design house collaborations around a joint project.
A new assistance tool which replaces VIA’s “aides à projets” and “carte blanche” grants, with the primary objective of bringing the projects to market.
The exposition will exclusively present the fruit of the first year of the incubator’s furniture and accessories projects: a neo-industrial kitchen, an ultra-graphic chair, a high-end clock, a ‘musical experience’ seat and many more. A ‘work in progress’ exposition that highlights the different phases of project development.
It was in June 2016, following VIA’s Speed Dating event, that the Incubator was set up, in partnership with Ameublement Français, CODIFAB and the FCBA. This pooling of expertise offers a platform for incubation devoted to design and furniture.
The aim of the incubator ? To encourage the emergence and development of innovative collaborations between French furniture businesses and designers.
