Design available for production

Promoting the new talents of tomorrow, VIA is exhibiting an offbeat selection of 43 prototypes for furniture and lighting designed for people looking for new solutions and innovative lines.

Prototypes seek makers
For the first time ever, these prototypes – which are usually reserved exclusively for the Paris and Milan fairs – are presented direct to the public. All were designed under a VIA annual creation assistance programme: 13 of them from the 2009 season were on show at the recent Paris furniture fair, while the 30 others are models not yet in production and designed over the last decade.
Whether it be the Pull over lamp developed as a new process for using optical fibre, the Particules stool designed to respect the environment at each stage of its fabrication, the universal base and Twin chairs, which respond to the constraints of limited space, or the Lamellé-décollé set, outstanding for its sophistication and masterly savoir-faire… All of these projects are still on the leading edge and are looking for makers and distributors. All are free for production.
The exhibition is open to one and all and demonstrates the vitality and diversity of French design schools, as well as the creativity of the design signatures of the future. Its also attests to the role of VIA as a promoter of creation and innovation over the past thirty years.
