Estonian Design Exhibition in Paris

Estonian Design Exhibition in Paris

Our aim is to introduce Estonia and various aspects of Estonian culture through design-related topics in particular.

In 2018, Estonia celebrates its 100th birthday. An international exhibition presents a suitable context to celebrate this important event as well as to introduce our wonderful little country in the heart of Europe – Paris.

From 07.12.2017 to 22.01.2018, an exhibition dedicated to Estonian design and culture will take place in the Cité de la Mode et du Design design centre in Paris. The program includes various events, such as Estonian design pop-up store and exhibition Size Doesn’t Matter, architectural installation by Salto architects; Estonian-themed photo exhibition and Jaan Kaplinsky’s poetry evening by French photographer Raphael Gianelli-Merian, presentation by environment concerned designer Reet Aus, as well as music events and Estonian animations for both big and small ones, etc.

Our aim is to introduce Estonia and various aspects of Estonian culture through design-related topics in particular. The core of the event is the design exhibition Size Doesn’t Matter, which contrasts the small size of the country, the high number of designers, and the abundance of achievements. The concept of the exhibition has been developed by The Estonian Association of Designers (EDL).

Dialogue between France and Estonia will be encouraged by including French artists. As foreigners, they can provide us with the so-called observer’s eye, which adds an interesting nuance to the entire project.

At the same time and as part of Estonia 100 celebrations, the street art project Restart Reality: Digital Street Art will take place in Paris. We are connecting these two projects, and as a result, Estonian stencil artist Edward von Lõngus will create his work on the wall of Cite de la mode et du Design.

* The program will be updated continuously, the final program will be released in September.
