Philia & Kids is the gallery’s philanthropic arm. Once a year the not-for-profit initiative works in collaboration with international designers with the aim to inspire, connect and engage children worldwide with design, from reflection to conception and eventually creation.
The inaugural edition Design Brut | Philia & Kids unveiled new furniture designs imagined by from Breil-sur-Roya primary school in France.
Philia organized the “Chantier Partagés” (shared workshops) project with the Société du Grand Paris. The idea behind the project is to invite Frédéric Saulou to work with a regional stone excavated from the new train worksites and create collectible design works in collaboration with local children of Palaiseau. Philia donated to their school the bench that they co-created. It will be shown permanently there.
