Exhibition — Past Present: industrial memory

Public opening : 10th October 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.
