Lille Métropole 2020 World Design Capital

This exhibition unveils a careful selection of objects to the public, judiciously presented and, in some cases, created especially for the event, as part of a close dialogue between the exceptional Villa Cavrois and the world of the designer duo.

For Muller Van Severen, the discovery of Villa Cavrois was a true revelation, such was the way in which the countless materials, colours, volumes and reflections of Mallet-Stevens’ masterpiece resonated with the world of the designer duo. This exhibition unveils a judiciously presented selection of objects to the public, some of them created especially for the event.

The exhibition will show visitors how the modernist setting of Villa Cavrois works just as well for the couple : a careful selection of objects, judiciously presented and, in some cases, created especially for the event, will form a close dialogue with the modern château, further asserting its dazzlingly contemporary nature.
