Pavillon France - Expo Dubaï 2020 (UAE)

Due to the health crisis and the postponement of Expo 2020 Dubai, the lille3000 “Textidream” exhibition, initially programmed for autumn 2020, will now run from 1 October 2021 to 31 March 2022.

At the invitation of the French Pavilion, lille3000 has designed a new edition of the Futurotextiles exhibition for the World Expo in Dubai, which will open its doors on 1 October 2021.

The Textidream exhibition, curated by Caroline David, will feature an original scenography in which micro-architecture capsules showcase the latest textile innovations inspired by French excellence, in particular from the Hauts?de?France Region and the Lille Eurodistrict.

The microcapsules will evoke the aesthetics of automated figures and snow globes, each one functioning as a poetic and futuristic animated theatre in its own right.

Luminous lace, fibre optic hangings and trimmings, perfumed and microencapsulated organza, a compressed-air vehicle with a flax body, a motorised exoskeleton and customised prostheses made of basalt fibre composite and bio-sourced resin, a feather dress fluttering to the rhythm of a wind turbine... will all be created by visionary companies and artists dedicated to research, development and innovation.

Textidream will be presented on the esplanade of the France Pavilion, a shaded, 2,000 m² space planted with trees, designed as a place for visitors to relax but also where their arrival will be transformed into a rich field of experience. Waiting times will become moments of sharing and emotions, a concert of sensations inviting visitors to dream and discover.

Textidream will be consistent with the programming of the France Pavilion, which will showcase the response of French expertise to the major challenges of sustainable development and the UN goals.
