So, Paris Design Week is not only a design experience, but it could be also a very complete food experience! Check it out!
1. Buy a Paris Design Week Coffee Cup at Galerie Joseph Turenne
The first thing you assiate with Paris might not be the take-away coffee cup, but the ones offered at Paris Design Week aren’t going to be your run-of-the-mill cardboard experience! Among the various exhibitions and events it presents for the 3rd Paris Design Week, Galerie Joseph Turenne has also invited its designers to create an originally designed coffee cup. The cups will be available for the duration of Design Week in all of the galleries.
2. Taste a Luxurious Pastry by Ladurée
Paris Design Week could hardly without an appearance from Ladurée, a Parisian institution and one of the best-known makers of macarons in the world? On the occasion of the 3rd Paris Design Week, this luxury bakery and patisserie has created a specially imagined pastry: Cocotte. It is two pink meringue shells, rose-flavoured millefeuille cream, and poached pear with rose and raspberry. This delicacy will be available exclusively at Bar Ladurée, in Rue Lincoln.

3. Walk in the Organic Garden on the Rooftop of Galerie Lafayette
Sous Les Fraises is not an artistic project so much as a company specialising in organic food production in an urban area. Installed in March on the rooftop of Galeries Lafayette, this urban garden offers a new way to design nature back into our cities – in a chic way!
4. Enjoy Some Pastoral Patterned Cake at La Maison Lenôtre
To celebrate the bicentannary of the death of Christophe-Philippe Oberkampf, the pioneer in the manufacture of Toile de Jouy, pastry house La Maison Lenôtre teamed up with the designer Hervé Matejewski to produce a three kinds of pastries decorated with pastoral motifs typical of Toile de Jouy. Wafer-thin discs of white chocolate are decorated with shepherdesses and cows, painted by Matejewski in his signature fluorescent colors. These limited edition pastries will be available in different flavors – pistachio/raspberry, vanilla/berries, praline/apricot and passionfruit – and sold from September 4 in all the Lenôtre shops.
5. Think About Food Design at Galerie Joseph Braque
Thinking Food Design started as an online platform to hold discussions about food culture, society and industry, and the future of eating. Initiated by Food Non Food, the new department at the Design Academy Eindhoven, this exhibition will bring together food designers and the artistic community.
