Join us for the exhibition of French design, which takes place at the museum of applied arts and design. Already hosted in several European and Asian countries, it will allow you to discover five works by the legendary designer Philippe Starck, amongst many others.

In addition to French design, you will be able to enjoy exceptional concerts; meet famous writers, French and Estonian, but also discover an original movie program, with fictions and documentaries screening at Kumu and Artis. 

To cap it all, the festival will end with Pierre Boulez concert, winner of 26 Grammy awards, in a former power plant in Kultuurikatel.
