FRANKFURT, Germany-France will be a partner country for the Ambiente trade fair next February.

Each year show owner and organizer Messe Frankfurt selects a partner country to showcase design ideas. The motto of the program this year will be "La France un art de vivre." French designer Olivia Putnam will act as ambassador for the project and, in a special show area in the foyer of Hall 4.1, will illustrate the French art of living.

Ambiente is scheduled to take place Feb. 15-19, 2013.
