VIA / design schools 07

An exhibition that covers the entire spectrum of design for living: furnishings, lighting, tableware and even street furniture…Each year during the two months of high summer, after the diplomas have been won, VIA opens a showcase for students from schools of design, fine arts and applied arts. A selection of the best work done by diploma-year alumni presents the particularities of their training in creation.
The exhibition aims at revealing the enormous potential of young French designers in their creative experiments for the world of tomorrow.

The schools also make available their own presentation documents, to give young people interested in design training clear information on training programmes. In the pursuit of its mission to promote and valorize the work of creative designers, all along the school year VIA engages in close collaboration with some thirty schools for creation in France and abroad. VIA finances the prototype production of certain projects by diploma students, sits on end-of-year juries, organizes talks on prospective themes it has researched, and accompanies teaching programmes.

This year, 18 schools are taking part in the exhibition
