PDW is back from the 7th – 13th of Sep

It typically occurs in September and coincides with the larger Paris Design Festival and the Maison et Objet trade fair. The famed event features a diverse program of exhibitions, talks, workshops, and events highlighting the latest design trends, innovations, and concepts.
