Parsons Presents Quotidian product Paris / New York

Thu Nov 18, 2010 00:00 - Wed Nov 17, 2010


The School of Constructed Environments at Parsons The New School for Design presents Quotidian Product: Paris / New York, a dialogue between two significant product design studios in Paris and two in New York: Jean-Francois Dingjian and Eloi Chafai of Normal Studio, and Francois Azambourg of Francois Azambourg Works in Paris; and Sigi Moeslinger and Masamichi Udagawa of Antenna Design, and Jeff Miller of Jeff Miller Design in New York.

Paris and New York share histories of liberty, luxury, poverty, immigration, and national identity. Through the lens of their respective metropolises, the designers will explore the cultural similarities and differences in their work. The conversation will address themes such as the modernist promise, the disappearing middle class, future thinking and daily practice. Rama Chorpash, director of Product Design at Parsons, will moderate the dialogue with Laetitia Wolff, a New York-based French design curator and strategist.

Quotidian Product: Paris / New York will take place November 18th at 6:00 pm at Wollman Hall, The New School, 66 West 12th Street, Fifth Floor (entrance is through the ground floor courtyard). The event is free and open to the public. Seating is limited. For more information, visit
