Designer Piergil Fourquié (with the help of Pierre Dubourg and Elise Fauveau with the Federation Française de Design) decided to gather a group of young designers he met over the past seven years with the goal of creating a collective "where everyone has freedom of self-expression without any hierarchical bond" says the designer.

Aura by Jacopo Ferrari

"Thus no design 'stars', no unintelligible text, an accessible design, simple typologies, a genuine spirit reminding everyone that design is a part of everyday life and that every object surrounding us (from the most ordinary to the fanciest), has been thought and designed."

Each team developed a series of wooden objects labeled with the team's color, by either adding another material and/ or by painting. The goal was to encourage each team's creativity and to help new talents emerge.

Coupes by Charles Seuleusian

"As in a true sport contest, the pieces will confront each other on a ring, in a thrilling head-to-head beneath Louvre's pyramid. It will be up to visitors to decide which team will be the winner by voting on the website: federationfrancaisededesign.com."
