’10 springs in the fall’ galerie kreo, paris september 12th to october 31st, 2009



this exhibition is a celebration of galerie kreo‘s ten years of existence, research, experimentation of over 500 pieces and 60 exhibitions. it is first a gallery, but also a lab dedicated to design research, with the intention of producing new pieces. as a way of looking back at this precise moment in which they remember the last ten years, galerie kreo has selected twenty designers, some of which have already exhibited and had their work produced by kreo, and others who are newcomers just beginning their adventure to showcase their projects. starting in1999, it is through the eyes of kamel mennour that galerie kreo has become a place in which artistic and design intervention takes place. the show includes work by konstantin grcic, the bouroullec brothers, hella jongerius, wieki somers and an exclusive project by naoto fukasawa.
