In this digital age, the image culture is widely spread, even tho our screen is an moving window,
cliches are steady. French culture is one with many icons, historical references and defined manners.
Those symbols are as many inspirations, images to play with or reasons to create. In their own way,
young French creatives come together to share a new vision of the French Culture.
French Cliché is also an invitation to share, exchange, taste, cross ideas and help grow our minds
from experimenting.Croissants are turned into tea pots, stools are made out of haussmanian apartment moldings,paintings play on typical French sayings. Those objects are tools to enjoy this new art de vivre!
