Comments concerning the functioning of the VIA website may be addressed to the webmaster at :

VIA (Valorization of Innovation in Furnishing) actively valorizes and promotes French creation in furnishing (furniture, lighting, tableware, decoration accessories, rugs, furnishing textiles...) both in France and abroad. Its programme of action targets the entire profession: industrial groups (VIA labels), small and medium-sized firms, artisans, producers, distributors, creative trades and designers (creation grants: project assistance, carte blanche awards, design schools). The VIA gallery, at the above address, stages regular exhibitions. The Agora des créateurs - the VIA website and data base for designers - presents on-line the press books of over 900 creators.


No personal information is gathered by VIA without your knowledge.
No personal information is ever passed on by VIA to a third party.


The VIA website has been declared to the CNIL monitoring authority (Commission Nationale de l'Informatique et des Libertés).


Fair warning is given here to all persons involved in this project for diffusion of personal information by the Internet.
In the framework of operating its data base for creators working in design and the decorative arts, known as the 'Agora des créateurs', VIA (Valorization of Innovation in Furnishing) diffuses information concerning you on its Internet website. We wish to remind you that you have the right to access, modify, rectify and suppress all or part of the information concerning you. This information is comprised of:
· a curriculum vitae and presentation text,
· your particulars or those indicated by you for inclusion on the Agora des créateurs (address, phone, fax, portable, e-mail, website), all other information remaining confidential,
· a portrait photo and photographs of your works (products, interior layouts, stands…). These documents are forwarded to VIA copyright free. A copyright trademark may be shown if you expressly request this, but this will not imply payment of a copyright fee by VIA.
Given the characteristics of Internet diffusion, which entails the unrestricted transfer and reception of data, and the difficulty - if not impossibility - of controlling the use made of this data by third parties, we expressly inform Agora participants that they may refuse this diffusion. Failing which, VIA declines all responsibility incumbent on such diffusion and its consequences, including the diffusion of photographs of prototypes not owned by VIA, of furniture models already made, or of any other work.
Your refusal and reserves must be addressed directly to VIA.


You may at any time in the future modify your wishes concerning diffusion of data concerning you by the Internet or demand that it be ended. To do so, you must contact us at the following address:
