Founded and led by Jean-Pierre Blanc and presided by Pascale Mussard, Design Parade 2021 aims to show the most contemporary creations in interior design and design and takes place across two cities in the south of France: in Hyères for design and Toulon for contemporary interior design.

The 15th edition of Design Parade 2021 Hyères held at the Villa Noailles, from June 24 to 27, 2021, offering a program of exhibitions, talks, and workshops focusing on contemporary design. The festival brings together professionals and the public promoting and supporting, since 2006, international emergent designers.

Each year the festival of Hyères presents 10 young designers by offering them visibility and the chance to win mentoring opportunities.

This 5th edition of the festival at Toulon Provence Méditerranée, held from June 24 to 27, 2021, showcased works from interior designers. In addition, the event presented the design collection of the Centre Pompidou and an exhibition curated by Marie-Ange Brayer with scenography by Jean-Baptiste Frastrez.

This annual Design Parade 2021 has awarded several young designers with its prestigious Grand Prix. For the Grand Prix at Hyères, the jury led by French designer Constance Guisset, who was one of the first laureates of the competition, has selected Cécile Canel and Jacques Averna.

The two winners received the Sammode award, which includes technical support and research and a creative grant around the lighting of 5000 euros from Sammode, with the result being presented during the 16th edition of Design Parade Hyères in 2022.

Instead, Edgar Jayet and Victor Fleury are the winners of the Grand Prix Van Cleef & Arpels at Toulon, selected by a jury led by architects Karl Fournier and Oliver Marty from Studio KO.
