For the first time in France after a world tour, "Tables Tables" takes place at the Grand Palais during Révélations. The Tableaux Tables exhibition - Les arts de la table, design et savoir-faire traditionnel (Tableware, design and traditional skill) will therefore be offering an opportunity to highlight some remarkable collaborative partnerships between French designers and tableware manufacturing houses. Major names in French crockery, cutlery and crystal (such as Baccarat, Bernardaud, Christofle, Forge de Laguiole, Ligne Roset, Sentou...) have called upon renowned designers and young artists (Philippe Starck, Jean-Charles de Castelbajac, Olivier Gagnère, Matali Crasset, Tsé & Tsé...) to work on modernising their product ranges. The exhibition will reunite ten 60 x 120cm tables, which will be presented like paintings, each one depicting a different meal.

After Macau and Buenos Aires, the exhibiton "LuxInside", photographic journey into the heart of luxury, invests the Grand Palais. The LuxInside exhibition, the product of a collective artistic network, presents fifteen photographs of iconical luxury objects, which have been imaged by a scanner. These photographic representations unveil, for example, the interior of a Cadolle corset, of a Hermès saddle or a Louboutin court shoe, a Leica camera or a Gibson guitar, hence revealing the secrets of their production. It took the LuxInside team two years of experimentation before perfecting a protocol that would literally plunge the spectator into the heart of these luxury objects.
