When major retailers tell the story of design… Prisunic is back in Paris with an exhibition about the “history of design for all”, at the MAD Paris - Musée des Arts Décoratifs, from December 2, 2021, to May 15, 2022. Called “Le design pour tous : de Prisunic à Monoprix, une aventure française” [Design for all: From Prisunic to Monoprix, a French adventure], it gives pride of place to two brands – Prisunic and Monoprix – that democratized design and returns on this “creative and committed adventure” that Prisunic was within the permanent collections.
In all, 500 pieces – including furniture, items and posters - expect curious people, retracing the greatest successes of the store and collaborations with major designers such as Terence Conran, Marc Held, India Mahdavi, Constance Guisset and Ionna Vautrin. Collaborations that extended to graphic designers, photographers, and artists such as Roman Cieslewicz, Friedemann Hauss, as well as stylist such as Alexis Mabille.
A themed and chronological exhibition revolving around two parts: the first one focusing on Prisunic, shines a light on major collaborations of the brand between 1968 and 1976. The second part focuses on the major creations of creators invited by Monoprix, “covering a theme dear to the retailer – the daily life item – through tableware, chairs and clothing”.
A wonderful exhibition on the universe of major retailing to discover as soon as possible. And to extend the experience, run to the Prisunic store on the Champs-Elysées in lieu of the Monoprix, as a nod to the story of the big chain!
