Nathan Young was the special guest of last year’s exhibition “NO TASTE FOR BAD TASTE” presented by Le French Design at National Design Centre as part of Voilah! France Singapore Festival 2019. The exhibition curated by Jean-Charles de Castelbajac shared the very best of French Design: the forty pieces exhibited have been carefully selected to represent the last ten years of French design production, and showcase works by Philippe Starck, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Ronan et Erwan Bouroullec, matali crasset, Mathieu Lehanneur, Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance, Christian Liaigre and Jean Nouvel, in a poetic scenography.
