Lille Métropole 2020 World Design Capital

In defiance of please don’t touch” signs in museums, Please do touch!” is a participative exhibition in which the visitor is the user.

Through an immersive and participative route, visitors are invited to touch, try, handle, and experiment with the products and services on display. By using and handling the objects presented, each user is given an idea of the extensive scope of design. Wherever possible, the museum’s permanent collections illustrate the themes of the exhibition, focusing on every field of design. The theme urban/​garden” is presented at the Maison Folie Hospice d’Havré like a route through the city, forming a link between the two cultural establishments.
