Partnership Project: Creation & Skilled Trades

Philippe Nigro & les Compagnons du Devoir / Intersection Divan
For this first Partnership Project, VIA and the Compagnons du Devoir – with the expertise of their Institute of Flexible Materials – have chosen to produce a lounge suite programme designed by Philippe Nigro. Young upholsterers and leather-workers training with the Compagnons du Devoir accepted the challenge to make the prototype. The experience is a fine example of the mobilization of human resources and materials and will be repeated in coming years.

Partnership project : VIA has added to its annual programme of support for creation and innovation a new and imaginative action, which brings together professionals as partners in developing an innovative project. The aim is to conserve and valorize skilled trades, encourage transfers of technologies and skills, and experiment with new materials or processes.
