In 2019, as in 1955, a DS will be on exhibit under the Nave of the Grand Palais, in Paris, like a work of art. Over 60 years after the original DS was unveiled, the DS brand is returning to this iconic space with the DS X E-TENSE for the Révélations event. Révélations, the international fine craft and contemporary creation biennial, will host 450 creators from 33 countries—and an automotive brand will figure among exhibitors for the first time in event history. From 22 to 26 May, the expected 40,000 visitors will have the chance to discover the DS X E-TENSE, the dream car created by DS Design Studio, a unique model demonstrating the exceptional savoir-faire of French craftsmanship brands. Master upholsterers from DS will be on site to share their expertise and passion for artisanry and fine materials with visitors. DS Automobiles will also participate in the Hors les Murs programme, presenting the art exhibit entitled ‘IN CONFIDENCE - Aesthetics of the senses’ at DS World Paris. Visitors can extend their experience at 33 Rue François 1er, which will exceptionally be open on Sunday, 26 May. The official transport company for the event, DS Automobiles has provided organizers with DS 3 CROSSBACKS, the brand’s latest creation and Icon of high-tech style. The public will also be able to try out the vehicle at DS World Paris.


With the new edition of Révélations, Paris will be the epicentre of fine craft and creation from 22 to 26 May. During those five days, the Grand Palais will bring together craftspeople, manufacturers, galleries, high-end brands, foundations, institutions, artisans, influencers, collectors, and professionals. The event will also be open to the general public.

Four hundred fifty creators from 33 countries will present unique and bold pieces that upend tradition. DS, the first car brand to participate, will take its place among them with the DS X E-TENSE, its vision of what automotive luxury will resemble in 2035. This dream car has been created with exceptional savoir-faire, leading to fully unique creations, including braided leather and elaborate feather inlay from Maison Lemarié studios.

The master upholsterers from the DS Design Studio will be on site to share their expertise and inimitable talent, on display in every single DS Automobile vehicle.

Refinement, extreme attention to detail, noble materials, elegance, and the savoir-faire of French luxury—these terms only begin to illustrate the path on which the DS brand has embarked, with the goal of embodying French luxury and high-tech expertise in the automotive industry.

DS Automobiles invites visitors to experience even more at DS World Paris, just a short walk from the Grand Palais. This home to the DS brand, at 33 Rue François 1er, is participating in the Hors les Murs programme, hosting the ‘IN CONFIDENCE: Aesthetics of the senses’ show. This exhibition offers a journey to initiate visitors in the values, savoir-faire, and inspiration behind DS Automobiles. It celebrates the passion and creativity of the men and women of the DS Design Studio, who will welcome visitors all weekend long.
