à la française
21.10.2022 - 23.10.2022

As part of the GRASSIMESSE from 21 to 23 October 2022 in Leipzig, the craft2eu agency will be presenting craft artists and designers from France whose work is currently enjoying great recognition in their home country.

The current trends that overshadow everything else in the lifestyle of the modern French are closeness to nature and decorativeness, a great appreciation for high-quality natural materials and refined processing techniques. While maintaining traditional craftsmanship as an important source of innovation and appeal, the Arts decoratifs - the decorative arts - are at the centre of interest in France. Here, ingenious craftsmanship and creativity care less about functionality and more about effective form around form as well as conceptual narratives. This attitude sets a distinctly different focus than the usual view of the applied arts in Germany.
