What is Design Exquis?

Design Exquis is an exhibition inspired by the collective method of creation, developed by the Surrealists, known as Exquisite Corpse (Cadavre Exquis).

The rules of the game are simple :

An object is chosen for its design qualities.
A designer is invited to react to it by producing a work.
This work is, in turn, answered to by a second designer.
The process is repeated.
None of the designers but the first one know what the first object is.
None of the designers know who the others are.
The only information they receive is the last object created.

For each edition, there are four group of designers in total. Each of them is given a short deadline to create their response, using the exhibition and the language of design to start a dialogue with each other and the audience about design, the design process and the interconnection of ideas.

The resulting objects and explanations about the process by which they were conceived are unveiled during an exhibition.
