From the Palais Royal to Saint-Germain, from the Bastille to Pantin, around a hundred events are planned in 70 places in Paris on the occasion of the D'Days which will take place from May 30 to June 5, 2016. This unmissable festival in the world of design this year will question the future with a single watchword: r / evolution!
The 16th edition of D'Days will put the spotlight on the various players in design, vectors of cultural, economic and social development. At the crossroads of art, technique and society, design was born with the industrial revolution as a response to the new production system. Faced with the third industrial revolution and the generalization of digital technologies, the designer has a role to play in putting technology at the service of man in ever more numerous and varied fields. The D'Days invite us to imagine new ideas, to share an upcoming story, to discover all the possibilities of tomorrow alongside researchers, industrialists, entrepreneurs and designers who will express their own vision of a discipline in full swing "r / evolution".
