Italian Design Day

The French edition of Italian Design Day has chosen Maison Ozenfant, Tecno’s Paris headquarters, as the venue for the event, which is based around the theme “Design and material: new challenges for the sustainable relaunch of Italian goods”.

This year’s edition will be held in Le Corbusier’s first work of architecture, a residence designed for his friend, the artist Amédée Ozenfant. The space became Tecno's Paris headquarters in 2017 and is now a TClub.
