“PRECIOUS” INSPIRATIONS SPACE
Artists, artisans and designers are revisiting the codes of luxury. There are many, wondrous paths to preciousness; they have the beauty of rarity and lead us to ponder the ultimate luxury. What is truly valuable?
The new theme unfolds at the heart of a new type of itinerary staged by Vasken Yeghiayan. He has brought the Inspirations space together in a larger form, with a pop-up bookstore for an inspirational break imagined by Vincent Grégoire/NellyRodi and conference space to deepen your knowledge. A precious 3-D experience for delving into today’s trends.
