In a contemporary creation where humour and dissent become legitimate, games have become a growing field of creation for a new generation of designers. Accustomed to fantastical themes, the Spanish creator Jaime Hayon has designed an entire range of furniture in this domain. Handling derision with subtlety, he has solemnised a storage unit by giving it the shape of an Olympic podium.

Barbie Foot by Chloé Ruchon evokes feminist assertions by hijacking a game that is usually very masculine, table football (“baby-foot” in French), to give it a subversive interpretation with large fuschia pink Barbie dolls. Yorgos Tloupas, has appropriated winter sports equipment by anchoring it in concerns specific to the fashion world, by re-evaluating the graphic design and style of skis made by the brand Black Crows.

The Design collections of the Musée des Arts Décoratifs will be closed from May 16 to June 22, 2022. We apologize for this.
