Le FRENCH DESIGN 100 celebrates the spirit and values of French design internationally by selecting 100 objects from hundreds of candidates opens on 20 January.  

ADC CEO and Artistic Director Lisa Cahill was invited to be part of the international jury to select winners across furniture, decorative and spatial design.

‘I am honoured to be invited as part of the jury for Le FRENCH DESIGN 100 and to see the phenomenal standard of work from French designers working internationally. The past 18 months have been challenging for everyone globally and who better to help us to find new ways to live in a post-covid world than our designers?’ said ADC CEO Lisa Cahill.

Due to Covid-19 challenges, the festival is digital for 2022 and will reveal the winners across social media in January.
We will share Lisa’s selected winners on on social media on 28 January.
