Paris (Slanted 25)


Loved and hated, hated and loved—it's likely no other European nation has a similarly ambivalent relationship to their capital as the French. In February 2015, Slanted's editorial team went on a weeklong trip to Paris to take a look at contemporary Parisian design work and the people who love to hate the French capital.

The team met with eighteen design studios and quickly learned about the exposed wounds and contradictions of a rapidly changing society as well as how the French use their spirit and humor as a subversive tools. The resulting extensive studio portraits paint a vivid image of the contemporary design scene in Paris. This issue's theme is complemented by works from illustration, photography and art at the interface of contemporary cultural production.
