Planète Renew at Galeries Lafayette Champs-Elysées

For the second year running, Galeries Lafayette Champs-Elysées is hosting an exhibition by upcycling artist
Kitesy Martin as part of Paris Design Week.

This artistic presentation can be seen from September 07 to 17 in the Boardroom on the second floor of Galeries Lafayette Champs-Elysées.

The installation unveils a world where the Earth is living its last hours, and where people are rushing to salvage a few objects before
taking refuge in another space-time. This immersive exhibition invites the public to find these last upcycled items,
remnants of the blue planet. All inhabitants have become craftsmen of rare or utilitarian objects from these terrestrial souvenirs, and everyone knows how to use their workshop to make
unique pieces for their daily lives.

Upcycling workshops are also on offer to discover how earthly objects are brought back to life.
