French designers to exhibit iconic products at Singapore’s first Art de Vivre à la Française [fr]
From 8th to 10th March, more than 15 brands representing French cultural heritage, decoration and art of living, will be showcasing iconic and high-end products at Singapore’s first Art de Vivre à la Française design event.
The country’s inaugural ART DE VIVRE à la Française design event, showcasing French cultural heritage and the concept of French Living Art through luxury furniture, décor and lighting, will be held from 8-10 March 2017. Signaling growing interest in French design, the event is organised by Business France, the national agency that supports the international development of the French economy, and is responsible for fostering export growth by French businesses, as well as promoting and facilitating international investment in France.
ART DE VIVRE à la Française will showcase French cultural heritage and the concept of French Living Art through a unique scenography created by French-born, Singapore-based designer, Isabelle Miaja. Spread over two floors of the historic Inverturret House on Gallop Road – significantly, the former residence of the French ambassadors between 1939 to 1999 – Miaja seamlessly incorporates the work of the designers to highlight the individuality of each brand while maintaining a harmonious flow throughout the space.
The luxury brands represented at ART DE VIVRE à la Française are a mix of heritage and contemporary brands, including eight with the Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant (Living Heritage Company, or EPV) label; the EPV is a mark of recognition of the French State, put in place to reward French firms for the excellence of their traditional and industrial skills.
