Because in today’s context online reputation has gained so much weight, companies need to protect their virtue. A young company, Solide, founded in 2017, offers solutions to develop products or innovation systems. Solutions that tap into everyone’s common sense and best judgment.
Solide’s sole ambition is to share its solutions with as many people as possible. After just one year of existence, the company decided to share their work with the public in a gallery in Cité du Petit-Thouars, with an exhibition entitled ‘Au mur!’, featuring partitions manufactured from felt, a ‘virtuous’ material produced from recycled wool.
The partitions are the company’s first step toward offering products with the potential to be produced industrially.
For many brands, Paris Design Week is also a unique opportunity to engage with the public, to present an original concept, prototypes of products currently in development. With an approach inspired by the way we shed our clothes, Solide has devised an installation that forces visitors to shift their perspective from body to interior through an original interpretation, in order to ensure the understanding of their research.
The BHV Marais got a new lease of life when it added the word ‘Marais’ to its name. One of the city’s major department stores, a place where people enjoy passing time, trying new things, finding inspiration, from the DIY section downstairs to its rooftop terrace, Parisians know they will always find what they are looking for there.
For Paris Design Week, the BHV Marais showcases its Absolument Maison brand, created by the store’s in-house design team. A complete range of products to create an interior that feels like home, to make home improvements or fix things and to get acquainted with the basic principles of upcycling.
