How Paris supports the emergence of contemporary women's design

These days, we've seen many contemporary design exhibitions taking place in Paris, as if the French capital were finally measuring its ability to exhibit and promote contemporary design. In a word, several young women designers, French or European, have done us the honor of presenting their latest work. Some promising projects that surely deserve to be under the spotlight...

It is for the Parisian gallery Amélie Maison d'Art that Italian designer Ilaria Bianchi recently designed the collection Alcova. It is in an interior carefully composed by the founder of the place, Amélie du Chalard, that each piece is enhanced, giving it a domestic and accessible scale. Alcova may claim a Neolithic aesthetic and almost tribal Despite sophisticated details, the collection is able to evolve perfectly in a common, contemporary, modern or artistic interior, as at Amélie's.

In terms of femininity, the contemporary furniture of the collection uses a vocabulary close to it: curved structures, the softness of materials, the delicacy of design when adding certain details. Lightened by contemporary treatments, the industrial profiles of the chair, the side and coffee tables are treated with care, and seem to have been designed to complete a kind of ritual. The entire collection is based on the balance between nature's inspiration and the pure vocation of Man to create, and to surround himself with a welcoming contemporary design, which arouses admiration.

It was during an artist's residency at the Yzeure glass centre that the designer Sophia Taillet imagined the early stages of her collection Curve. Each element presents both the technique that surrounds this material for ages, and all the poetry that its use allows to spread. Recently exhibited in Paris at the French Design by via, the designer has taken care to preserve the function of each furniture or object, while proposing a new reflection on them: that of incorporating industrial materials into the world of contemporary design.

Deeply inspired by the color and transparency of glass, but also its disturbing resemblance to water, French designer has shaped his research in the Curve collection. As a familiar and mystical material, glass and its effects are multiplied tenfold when exposed to light. Sophia Taillet has exploited these properties as it should, using both clear and coloured glass. The textures are also part of the mix, allowing the protagonists of this collection to stand out from each other. In turn hammered to the plan, the glass has mutated and adapted to our times, with the complicity of the craftsmen of the glass centre.
