There will also be a bistronomic restaurant by Vincent Favre-Félix a chef from Annecy, the first climbing center in the city center and a new experiential place designed by the collective of Japanese artists TeamLab.
An exhibition space animated by the Wondervision studio in partnership with the École Supérieure d'Art Annecy Alpes and the Haute École d'Art et de Design de Geneva will also be present at the “New Galeries.” Galeries Lafayetter wants to highlight the work of local artists and designers around the themes of the environment and upcycling.
