Exhibition - Playground, design meets sport

From June 13 to September 27

Designers from the Ateliers de Paris network present their creations linked to sport. This exhibition is part of the Cultural Olympiad.

To coincide with the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games, the City of Paris' Bureau du Design, de la Mode et des Métiers d'Art presents the exhibition Terrain de jeux, la création rencontre le sport.
Sport is about practice and competition, but also about shapes, colors and movement, all of which are sources of inspiration for craftspeople, fashion designers and designers. Numerous objects, garments, accessories and installations are conceived, designed and produced to promote, enhance, divert or transcend the practice of sport. The projects presented in this exhibition tell the story of how design, fashion and crafts interact with and draw inspiration from the world of sport, creating ever fruitful encounters. The fields of experimentation include awards, games, street furniture, performance and movement.

The scenography, designed by Mathilde Gullaud, invites the public to enter the field of creation, to take part in the game in an area dedicated to basketball, and to join in the creative process with customization and upcylcing workshops.

With: 5.5, Anicet, Bina Baitel, Juliette Berthonneau x Victor Guerithault, Cluzel / Pluchon, Sophie Cure x Clémentine Fort, Pauline Deltour, Céleste Durry x Julien Colombier x Trajectoire Studio, Dimitry Hlinka, Marianna Ladreyt, Steven Leprizé, Martial Marquet, Alexandre Moronnoz, Noir Vif, Sandrine Nugue, Slau Design, Inga Sempé, Unqui Designers and Ionna Vautrin.

Dimitry Hlinka - 1

With a dual background in crafts and design at the École Boulle, first in cabinetmaking and marquetry, then in event design, he has developed an acute sensitivity to issues linking craft and innovation.
Backed by his technical and conceptual skills, his creative practice is based on the exploration of the mechanical, aesthetic and functional properties of materials.
The projects he leads, most often in collaboration, are the fruit of a vision that favors unprecedented creative approaches, between expertise and experimentation. 

Sophie Cure x Clémentine Fort - 2

Sophie Cure has been developing a transdisciplinary graphic design practice since 2012. Nurtured by the performing arts, she conducts artistic research into language and play alongside her commissioned work, which she develops through exhibitions, performances and publications.

Clémentine Fort is an associate artist at Le Bel Ordinaire. Since 2005, she has been developing a body of work involving sculpture, photography and writing. She is currently creating objects that mobilize and recompose the graphic vocabularies of modes of circulation and routes in specific areas.


Founded in 2015, the CLUZEL / PLUCHON office was created by Sébastien Cluzel and Morgane Pluchon. Their approach is to create everyday objects by questioning their use, their perception in space as well as their mode of production. To design functional, durable and elegant products, their creations are guided by an aesthetic of economy and use. Understanding the industrial and artisanal tools at our disposal is always the first step in the development process.

5.5 - 4

5-5 is a global design studio founded in 2003 by Vincent Baranger, Jean-Sébastien Blanc, Anthony Lebossé and Claire Renard. Today, Studio 5-5 brings together multidisciplinary creative talents in a sustainable design approach. They help companies and local authorities to reinvent themselves and face up to the challenges of ecological transition.

Bina Baitel - 5

Bina Baitel, Architecte DPLG graduate of the École National Supérieure d'Architecture de Paris La Villette, founded her design and architecture studio in Paris in 2006.

Ionna Vautrin - 7

Ionna Vautrin is a French designer whose creations combine softness and precision of line in the service of public and private spaces. Her work is an encounter between poetry and industry, where each creation is part of a common style.
The success of the Binic lamp published by Foscarini in 2010 drew attention to her work. At the request of the SNCF, she designed the TGV lamp installed in French high-speed trains. The Diocese of Paris entrusts her with the design of the 1,500 chairs that will welcome the faithful to Notre-Dame de Paris when it reopens at the end of 2024.

Pauline Deltour - 8

Pauline Deltour was born in 1983. After studying object design at the Arts Décoratifs de Paris, she worked with German designer Konstantin Grcic before opening her own studio in Paris in 2010.

Since then, she has multiplied her collaborations, always with a design, whatever the product, of apparent simplicity and controlled elegance, but not devoid of ingenuity. 

The artistic facet, which is so dear to him, is joined by a more practical dimension, resolutely focused on the user. The precision and sharpness of a line that is both strong and delicate, the search for the right line, the choice of colors and materials, assemblies and compositions all contribute to the identity of his work.

Pauline Deltour is often cited as a major figure in contemporary French design. The untimely death in September 2021 of the shooting star of design provoked a great deal of reaction. Since then, her studio has continued to bring projects to life, celebrating her talent and perpetuating her legacy.

His first urban seating projects won him several awards: Étoile du design, Grand Prix de la Création de la Ville de Paris.

Urban design, which he is particularly fond of, is a rich and complex field, a marvel for a surveyor's profession. The PODIUM project is a fine iteration of this.


Founded in 2015, MARTIAL MARQUET STUDIO, is an architectural SASU that crosses architecture, scenography and design.

For several years now, many of the studio's creations have been geared towards the design of convivial and welcoming spaces. Produced as part of urban and landscape developments, public or cultural facilities, perennial or ephemeral, hybrid and evolving, the studio's constructions advocate efficiency of form and use, placing the user's experience at the heart of the project.

Juliette Berthonneau x Victor Guerithault - 16

Using three-dimensional weaves and pleated surfaces, she creates self-supporting, sculptural textiles. Keen to improve textile production methods, she explores both industrial technologies and artisanal know-how.

Victor Guerithault, a designer specializing in kites and aerial structures, is a graduate of EESAB Rennes. Fascinated by light structures, architecture and kites, he has found a way to dust off aerodynamic systems in a playful way. Here, the aim is not simply to fly your kite, but to build it from A to Z, and transform it in just a few minutes. Based on 3D parts specially created for these kites, over 300 different shapes can be built.
