CONFIDENCE THE ART OF THE SENSES. DS DESIGN STUDIO PARIS REVEALS
- For the first time, DS DESIGN STUDIO PARIS is leaving its usual work space and setting up over the three floors of DS WORLD PARIS at 33 Rue Francois 1er, Paris.
- The men and women of DS Automobiles design under the direction of Thierry Metroz, DS Design director, will be revealing the innovative projects they’re working on and sharing their secrets through ‘CONFIDENCE - The art of the senses’.
- More than an exhibition, this is a residency of artists, brought to life by DS Automobiles designers who are on hand to explain their jobs, present their work and talk with visitors.
- As at the DS DESIGN STUDIO PARIS, workshops for art and craftsmanship will merge with 3D modelling.
From the first sketches of cars that are already well known to completely new work, DS DESIGN STUDIO PARIS is relocating to DS WORLD PARIS. During a unique exhibition called ‘CONFIDENCE The art of the senses’, DS Automobiles is celebrating the passion and creativity of the men and women from DS design.
A young car brand whose designs for DS 7 CROSSBACK and DS 3 CROSSBACK are already a benchmark, DS Automobiles has made a mark with its boldness. DS DIVINE, DS E-TENSE and DS X E-TENSE Concept and Dream cars are the results of a creative process that came about within DS DESIGN STUDIO PARIS.
The DS Automobiles design team is opening up to the public by revealing its secrets to the outside world. Over the three floors of DS WORLD PARIS, DS is offering an exploratory journey to the heart of its values, expertise and inspiration. Designers, expert upholsterers and craftsmen share their feelings about their work, for the most part completely spontaneously.
Some confidentiality restrictions have been lifted so they can reveal additional secrets. The work of the 60 people who make up the DS DESIGN STUDIO PARIS is presented by the different teams: exterior design, interior, ProLab, VLab, modellers, colour and material workshops and upholsterers.
The men and women of DS DESIGN STUDIO PARIS are on hand throughout the event to explain their work and answer visitors’ questions. The brand wants them to share their inspiration and most recent work to cast a new light on the design and build of a car.
“DS design is the perfect alchemy between avant-garde technology and the world of hand-made, incredible materials and the expertise of French luxury craftsmanship. It’s a design that is pure and sculptural, for cars with perfect proportions that stand out on the road from the first glance. DS design is also something extra that you feel and discover gradually; a presence that asserts itself forcefully and spreads. This something extra is made up of details painstakingly sculpted, worked, fashioned. We wanted to share our dreams with the people they exist for: our customers. CONFIDENCE The art of the senses epitomises this desire to show how we work completely transparently, between high technology and more traditional craftsmanship. We’ve chosen to lift some confidentiality restrictions for a unique concept. CONFIDENCE The art of the senses isn’t really an exhibition, it’s more an act of sharing and opening up in order to exchange ideas with visitors!”
Thierry Metroz, DS DESIGN STUDIO PARIS Director
‘CONFIDENCE - The art of the senses’ is open from 22 March to 23 April 2019 at DS WORLD PARIS, Paris.
