The famous NFT marketplace dedicated to art, SuperRare, announced these days the launch of a new project entitled D3SIGN CAPSULE, created in partnership with ELLE Décoration France magazine.
Specifically, it will be a collection of 16 NFTs created by as many architects and designers who were selected by the ELLE Décoration France team to collaborate with different digital artists who then created the NFTs.
These works will be put on display during the upcoming Paris Design Week to be held in the French capital from 10 to 18 September at the Hotel de Soubise at the National Archives at 60 rue des Francs-Bourgeois. A nice opportunity for crypto and NFT fans, who will probably already be in town for Binance Week, which is also being held in Paris from 14 to 16 September.
The exhibition will feature not only NFTs, but also the respective physical works from which the corresponding Non-Fungible Token was later created.
On SuperRare these NFTs will be offered for sale in the form of an auction in the SuperRare Space, i.e., one of the marketplace’s independent galleries, created in this case in collaboration precisely with ELLE, the famous magazine that celebrates its 35th anniversary this year.

SuperRare’s latest initiatives
Since SuperRare launched its Spaces, which are independent galleries created with brands and companies, the marketplace has often announced new projects, and this one with ELLE is just the latest in the list.
In June, SuperRare had also collaborated with Gucci to put on an exhibition titled “The Next 100 Years of Gucci,” featuring 29 different artists.
Meanwhile, these very days, SuperRare also collaborated with Tales of Us, a music group that launched its own NFT project called Anyma. One of their latest concerts was held in collaboration with SuperRare itself in New York City, where, by the way, in Soho, the marketplace has its own gallery where it organizes NFT events and exhibitions.
Publishing enters the NFT world
ELLE is not the first newspaper that has decided to enter the Non-Fungible Token sector. Before them there were Rolling Stones and the collaboration with the Bored Apes, Vanity Fair and the tokenized covers, both in Italy and in the US foreign version, Corriere della Sera, Gazzetta dello Sport, Vogue and many others.
In addition, TIME was perhaps the first to sell some articles in NFT format, selling for millions of dollars.
