DS Automobiles shows off its expertise at RÉVÉLATIONS

Comunicato Stampa disponibile solo in lingua originale. 

•    From 9th to 12th June 2022, the Grand Palais Éphémère on the Champs de Mars in Paris will host the biennial RÉVÉLATIONS.
•    This gathering, established in 2013, is a unique chance for professional artists to meet their audience and come up with new ideas.
•    DS Automobiles will show the DS AERO SPORT LOUNGE concept and the results of its DS x METIERS D’ART design competition.

Every other year, Révélations is the major gathering that showcases French and international design. Conceived and established by Ateliers d’Art de France, the trade association representing 281 French artists, the biennial is the sector’s main commercial gathering. A place for lively debate, Révélations brings together the creative market’s professionals with amateur art and craft lovers surrounded by previously unreleased work and remarkable expertise. 

Excellence, the avant-garde and versatility are the values supported by the biennial Révélations. It’s a time for unique discussion and unearthing tomorrow’s trends in a remarkable location, the Grand Palais Éphémère.

The first automotive brand to take part in the event since 2019, DS Automobiles will show the DS AERO SPORT LOUNGE concept car. Honoured with the prize for the most beautiful concept car by the Festival Automobile International, DS AERO SPORT LOUNGE brings a refreshing take on the car, driven by French expertise. This concept unveils a new shape designed to increase the value of aerodynamic efficiency as a medium for the avant-garde and desirability. Beyond the imposing presence with its very large wheels and sculpted silhouette, DS AERO SPORT LOUNGE introduces a high fashion interior, made of sustainable materials – as high quality as they are long lasting – with satin cotton, straw marquetry and silk. Screens have been removed from the dashboard to leave generously wide surfaces onto which information is projected. The driver controls the interface with gestures picked up by ultrasound. The result of winning championships in Formula E, the electric technology gives an output of 500kW (680 horsepower), for an increased range of 650 kilometres. And as with every concept made by DS Automobiles, DS AERO SPORT LOUNGE has put in the testing kilometres on open roads.

DS Automobiles will also display work from the entrants in the DS x METIERS D’ART competition. Started last year, this project brought together several dozen professional artists with a common goal: to introduce new techniques, new materials and new solutions into a unique DS 9 and nurture creativity within DS Automobiles.

Involved since it was created to be the embodiment of French luxury savoir-faire, the DS Automobiles brand continues to build bridges between the best French artists and craftspeople and its own designs. From working with leather, dress making, unexpected materials such as feather or straw marquetry, DS Automobiles has specialised in including unique expertise in its production and concept cars.

Ten candidates were selected and accompanied by the DS Automobiles design teams to produce one or two samples representing their expertise and their aims. The work done by Anne Leroux - Maison Pavane, Anne Lopez – General creative, Studio Laura Leblanc – Textile design, Studio Martin Berger – Movement-Light-Emotions, Charlotte Kaufmann – Textile design, Dimitri Hlinka and Nicolas Pinon, Jean-Baptiste Saint-Criq - Cercus marquetry, Line et Raphaël – Print me a sheep, Paulina Okurowska – Contemporary mosaics and Stéphanie Lacoste – Curiosity textile, are being exhibited.
The jury made up of Pascal Morand, Executive President of the Fédération de la Haute Couture et de la Mode, Lison de Caunes, Master of Art in straw marquetry, Hubert Barrère, Artistic director of Maison Lesage and corset maker, Anna Le Corno, cabinet maker and designer from Atelier Farouche Paris, Béatrice Foucher, DS Automobiles CEO, Thierry Metroz, DS Automobiles Design Director and Jean-Philippe Vanhulle, Head of the DS Automobiles upholstery studio, named Anne Lopez the winner of the first DS x METIERS D’ART. A second competition will be launched soon.
