International city of the French language

A historical treasure

In 1539, François I signed a historic decree at the Château de Villers-Cotterêts in Picardy, imposing the French language on administrative and legal documents. 

Forgotten and neglected for many years, this beautiful edifice has regained its strength and vigor to become La Cité internationale de la langue française. 1600m2 of permanent exhibition space, a 250-seat auditorium, 12 residency workshops for artists, researchers and entrepreneurs, a varied program of shows, events, conferences and exhibitions, educational activities, training and language learning, and a research and innovation laboratory on linguistic issues. 

Crea Diffusion, in partnership with Atelier Projectiles, is immensely proud to have participated in this project by producing, shaping and installing no less than 1,769m2 of Corian: various exhibition elements, mobile or fixed, with a very elegant finish of brass edging and a very specific moulding. Each piece is unique, singular, perfectly adapted to the object it displays. In this respect, Corian is a formidable material for its versatility.
