The Fondation d’entreprise Martell becomes patron of France Design Week

Press Release

The Fondation d’entreprise Martell is pleased to announce its new commitment to support French design professionals. Its will to partner with this nationwide event bringing together French design professionals demonstrates the Fondation’s desire to promote their expertise on a local, national and international scale.

For five years, the Fondation has been committed to supporting contemporary creators, with particular attention paid to vernacular know-how. Aware of the urgent challenges related to climate transition and convinced of the transformative power of creation, it has defined a new strategy to become a lever of transformation and will now mobilize all of its resources to support residents working on these issues.

Its original model integrates production and experimentation studios, enabling it to support residents pitching “futureproof” projects and imagining new paths to build the future. The Fondation has set itself the challenge of promoting local resources in close dialogue with its territory but also in collaboration with invited experts.

France Design Week 2022 will take place from September 7 to 28, 2022 and will showcase all fields of French design to both general public and professional audiences throughout the territory, thanks to a variety of events including exhibitions, conferences and talks, design studio visits workshops or design studios, school open days, workshops and networking initiatives, etc.
