Vert le Nord!
The exposition ‘Vert le Nord! Un panorama du design durable des Pays-Bas’ will be open to visitors on the banks of the Seine (Berges de Seine) from June 2nd till June 7th. Yksi Ontwerp curated this exposition for the Dutch Embassy in Paris, as a part of the design festival Paris D’Days.
The exposition, with design by more than 40 Dutch designers, is installed in four containers at Les Berges, an event location on the banks of the Seine. A bag and a bracelet made from bicycle tires and tabourets made from second-hand furniture; such surprising designs are a response to today’s mass production and consumer society, but they also challenge the visitor to look and experience reality in a fresh new way.
Vert le Nord! shows how the Netherlands are at the forefront of innovative and sustainable design and takes a look at the Dutch contribution to the international climate conference COP21, that will take place in Paris, late 2015.
