The Saint-Etienne International Design Biennial is a unique event in the world of design, in terms of both the exhibitions that if offers and the diversity of the visitors that it attracts. For its 7th edition, the International Biennial 2010 focuses on ‘teleportation’, a theme that addresses the real issues of mobility and ubiquity which govern our lifestyles today.
Founding partner of the Cité du Design in Saint-Etienne since 2006, EDF will of course be present at the Biennial to introduce several concepts based on the theme ‘Design and energy’ within Claire Fayolle’s exhibition entitled Demain, c'est aujourd'hui #3 (Tomorrow is today - Part 3). EDF is also partnering the workshop for children called ‘Kids Candela’ which aims to allow youngsters to discover how light can be used as a material..
Demain, c'est aujourd'hui #3 is the third in a series of exhibitions devoted to futuristic design that Claire Fayolle initiated in 2006 within the framework of the Biennial.
