Joe Colombo - Inventing the future

The Musée des Arts décoratifs of Paris is hosting the first international retrospective of the work of one of the most brilliant creators of his time, italian designer Joe Colombo (1930-1971) , from 29 March - 19 August 2007.
So if you like futuristic ceiling televisions, pivoting walls with built-in minibar, underground ‘nuclear’ towns, come and see the show!
For more on the exhibition, see this page (french only, sorry) with some pictures.

    I am Cedric, discoverer of things that would go unnoticed in the streets of Paris, historic haven of fashionistas and city of lights ('lights' as in 'enlightenment', not street lights).
    But seriously: I'm an expat from Luxembourg (the country, not the garden), living in the center of Paris (hence 'Paris 2nd arrondissement'), and currenlty studying architectural history...
