This year, the organisers of Art Élysées are part of the International Organization "2015 Year of Light" which aims to tell a wider audience about the use of light in art. Upon entry to Art Élysées, visitors are welcomed into the light of the fair hall by light work The invisible are limits ... by artist Yves Charnay.

The exhibition "Art Elysées-Light Project" parallels the work of Eric Michel and Pierre Marie Lejeune, both with very different approaches to using light as a medium.

In addition to the presentation of these three artists, each exhibiting gallery at Art Elysées - Art & Design is invited to focus on the theme of light.

Art Elysées - Art & Design: Design Section

Art Elysées - Art & Design offers, in collaboration with Alexandre Guillemain gallery, an exhibition of rare seats designed by Pierre Guariche which date between 1951 and 1965.

Collected over a decade, some models presented are the only known versions of the pieces by the famous French designer.

Art Élysées has fifteen galleries dedicated to design at the event, all focusing on lighting and natural materials such as clay, fiber, wood.
