New exhibitors have joined the tenors of these specialties and are perfectly illustrating the eclecticism and ambitions of PAD Paris, among them: Demachy Sinceux Gallery, Mahaux, Missakian, Portuondo, Damien Tison and WA Design Gallery in 20th century decorative arts, Gallery Italienne, Veta Stefanidou Tsoukala, Mougin Gallery and Maison Pouenat in contemporary design, Ming’ k-i Gallery in Asian art, Hélène Bailly in modern art and Louiselio and Thomas Fritsch in glass and ceramic.

This year, Studio PAD Paris is entrusted to the architect-curator Charles Zana. PAD Prize 2018, chaired by Marie-Laure Jousset, gathers a jury of collectors, critics, curators, architects and interior architects specialised in Design and 20th century Decorative Arts. The jury will designate the prize for the Best Stand, the prize of the 20th Century Decorative Art, and the prize of Contemporary Design.
