Home-grown talent on show in Paris Design week

By Alison Hird

Paris Design Week is running here in the capital in some 200 venues around the city. One of them, Le Grand Marché de Stalingrad, is brand new. We visit the 18th century listed building, formerly a post for collecting tax on goods shipped into Paris, and which has now reinvented itself as a hip space to discover design. It began by showcasing the work of a French collective producing made in France furniture and ceramics.
