design : visions
Design as seen through the eyes of French designers and experts
English subtitles available for non-French speakers
For World Industrial Design Day 2018, The Design Spot unveils a video series featuring representatives of French design. They each offer their definition of a discipline that evolves constantly to reflect the changing world.
These professionals work for major industrial companies or large agencies, or run their own studio. They agreed to share their personal vision of design, of its role and place in society, and of its links with business, innovation and scientific research.
