Design and Sport have always interacted and fed into one another. Design plays a key role in the history of sport and increases athletic capacities. Designers draw on materials, sports ergonomics and esthetics to support athletes in their quest for increasingly outstanding sporting performances.
To mark the Paris 2024 Olympic Games, the Musée du Luxembourg is organizing an exhibition on the future of design and sport. Part of the Olympiade Culturelle program, Match explores the role of design in the progress of sport and the ties forged between these two fields, as well as potential developments. The exhibition also looks at how the sporting world has continued to inspire top designers – and vice-versa – in sectors including the automotive and ready-to-wear industries.
