Design Parade Toulon - 6th international festival of interior designfrom 23 June to 30 October 2022
Ten years after its predecessor, Design Parade Toulon, launched in 2016, has the same objectives. Focusing on interior architecture, it is the first competition and festival of its kind in France. In 2019, the Centre Pompidou and the Toulon Provence Méditerranée Metropolis will sign a multi-year agreement to exhibit the national design collections in Toulon each summer.
Every summer, the Villa Noailles organises Design Parade in two parts: in Toulon for interior architecture, in Hyères for design.
The festival is also an opportunity to explore the heritage of the two neighbouring towns, each of which offers an expression of the architectural and decorative wealth of the Metropolis and the Var. Through this proposal, Design Parade makes it possible to approach, over the course of an extended weekend, all aspects of the decorative arts in contemporary creation.
