D’Days: Origins of A Work

Parsons Paris, in collaboration with Domaine de Boisbuchet, presents “L’origine de l’original”, a satellite of the summer exhibition at Domaine de Boisbuchet. The exhibition explores the notions of creativity and originality through design, and questions the value and the very existence of originality. The Parsons Paris Gallery exhibition shows objects that have revolutionized design history and practice. The objects on display have recast the foundations of modern design and contribute to the 2016 D’Days design festival theme of “r/evolution”.

Under the supervision of Domaine de Boisbuchet’s Director Mathias Schwartz-Clauss, MA History of Design & Curatorial Studies graduate student Oliver Graney [top image] selected iconic works by Charles Eames, Ingo Maurer, Gerrit Rietveld, Gaetano Pesce, Jerszy Seymour, Vogt und Weizenegger, and Tokujin Yoshioka from the collection of design curator and museum director Alexander von Vegesack.

The exhibition will be open to the public May 19th to June 3rd. The Parsons Paris Gallery is open Monday through Friday noon to 6pm at 45 Rue Saint Roch 75001.
