Exhibition — Design: please do so
10th October 2020 — 10th January 2021
The exhibition Design : please do so aims to offer a multi-sensory experience to the visitor while breathing new life into the connection the individual has with the object. The aim of the exhibition is to arouse the viewer’s curiosity so that they get a better idea of the range and scope of the applications of design: object, product, industrial, space, graphic, textile, UX/UI, etc.

Exhibition — Past Present: industrial memory
15th October 2020 — 3rd January 2020
The exhibition looks at our region as a region of opportunities, taking into account its history and its expertise, from the contemporary point of view. 5 iconic businesses, which are part of the identity of the Hauts-de-France region, are associated with 5 designers. This has yielded new products, which take pride of place at exhibitions, as well as the production of short-format testimonial films, which are more effective at describing the object being made.
Exhibition — Dépliages
22th February — 19th March 2021
By selecting products and services under study or recently marketed by regional companies in France, the exhibition invites you to discover design as a mediation tool from the technical world to the user. Design emerges as a creator of common ground, making the invisible visible and demystifying the technique aspects.

lille—design paper no. 4
The lille—design paper magazine continues its editorial line on a theme with a 360° perspective: let's take the time to understand it better, let's stop for a moment on the "being and doing" aspects of the designer. Nearly 40 contributors have worked in this way. Designers, teachers, researchers have analysed their current practices, or those to come.
