Let’s Party: Kids only, with Liu Bolin and Studio GGSV

You might regret not being 10 years old anymore... One of the most iconic contemporary art museums in the world, the Centre Pompidou, A.K.A. Beaubourg, is celebrating its 40th birthday. Acclaimed designers Gaëlle Gabillet and Stéphane Villard (Studio GGSV) have been invited, on this occasion, to imagine an entirely new kind of event for the Children's Gallery. « Galerie Party », a story in three acts, takes place in a fantasy garden, where a strange house has been erected. The second act has just been unveiled. Brace yourselves (and get your kids ready): from September 9, 2017 to January 8, 2018, Chinese artist Liu Bolin, « The Invisible Man » himself, will hide – wearing his hand-panted costume matching the background, as usual- in the disruptive decor created by Studio GGSV at the crossroads of architecture and design. On the inaugural night, Liu Bolin will perform in front of the public one of his emblematic photographs-performances which allows him to camouflage himself by mimicry within the environment, thanks to his hand-painted outfit that will become the starting point of games, fancy dressing- the highlight of this very special birthday party. Children will chose among an array of costumes whether enabling them to hide in Liu Bolin's photographs collection or stand out by wearing the garden-inspired prints. « Our work ranges from concrete proposals to manifestos. We are looking for forms that offer different interpretations. Matter is at the heart of our concerns. Our production tackles a contradiction . . . We imagine more objects to make less objects. »

Kara Mann for Baker / Milling Road launch, Paris

American furnishings company Baker have decided to hand the reins of their casual, more accessible Milling Road brand to designer Kara Mann for a complete relaunch. The Chicago and NY-based designer has devised 54 pieces of furniture for the line, available for purchase this month. With crisp and bold lines, mixing metallic accents and earthy stone, the collection palette is dominated by black, white, and dusty purples and grays—colors that "have a bit of dirt thrown in," explains the designer. After its December debut in High Point (North Carolina), the Kara Mann collection for Baker / Milling Road has just been launched in Paris at the Baker showroom (66 rue du Faubourg Saint Honoré, 75008 Paris).
