From 27 October 2016 to 12 February 2017, the Musée des Arts Décoratifs will be showing an exhibition of furniture and objects designed by Jean Nouvel, one of the rare contemporary architects to have had more than a hundred of these creations published since 1987. Jean Nouvel has treated this unique invitation not merely as a retrospective but as an opportunity to create a dialogue with the museum, its history an d its collections. The Jean Nouvel, mes meubles d’architecte exhibition reveals itself with the museum, from the Middle Ages and Renaissance galleries to the 17th and 18th century collections, but also in the graphic design an d advertising spaces that Jean Nouvel designed in 1998, creating novel situations and interferences.
