AUTUMN 2020 AT SAINT SAUVEUR
09 SEPTEMBER > 08 NOVEMBER 2020

Autumn at Saint Sauveur is a second exhibition as part of Lille Metropole 2020, World Design Capital hosted by lille3000. And still a series of weekends for the whole family in partnership with Ville de Lille and many associations of the Lille metropolis: concerts, shows, birthday parties, cinema for young people, Urban Farm, Bistrot de St So...

With 1,500 designers involved, more than 500 design projects (many of which are supported by the City), 20 exhibitions and 50 major events, the Lille Metropole 2020, World Design Capital project is based on experimentation and the transformation of the region through design. The programme will be divided into four seasons and will be stepped up throughout the year. Winter will be the time to raise awareness of design, and will give way to "revelation" in spring, "fulfilment" in summer and "achievement" in autumn.

EXHIBITION
"LA MANUFACTURE: A LABOUR OF LOVE"
09 SEPTEMBER > 08 NOVEMBER 2020
An original production of Lille Metropole 2020, World Design Capital.
Curators: Lidewij Edelkoort and Philippe Fimmano

This exhibition by Lidewij Edelkoort, a world-renowned trend forecaster, explores the experiments of a new generation of designers with materials and manufacturing processes.

Design is turning to the human hand to give shape to a profound disarray that can no longer conceive of the often superfluous industrial design of previous decades. But after a period of arts & crafts, we see that the hand wants to adorn itself once again with the machine, the computer, the laboratory and the loom. Suddenly hand and machine join hands and produce astonishing objects and materials that prepare us for a future to be invented together. 

Thus designers buy or found real factories, develop collectives to share places and machines, work in an open source way and recycle the materials piled up in our lands and seas. They want to make something beautiful out of something ugly, by transforming data. The joy of manufacturing is palpable.

This birth of magical manufactures shows us the way to the nobility of ploughing, a nobility that can give meaning to man's integrity, the first fruits of what can save humanity from itself.
