Maison&Objet, the big French design trade show which is held in Paris, specializes in home goods and furniture and is motioning the city of lights since Friday for the second time this year. If you could not be present at the event yet, we give you little review about what we found here.
At the autumn edition of the chanting event the main theme is “Essential”, what organizers describe as “minimalist luxury” or “beauty in its most elementary sobriety”. The inspirations itinerary of this edition presents the tendencies in a series of three spaces as the part of the highlights:
MINIMUM – curated by Elizabeth Leriche, is under the motto “choosing the best by privileging less”. The pieces in this section are the ones which have simple geometry, transparent materials and lighter forms. Leriche is a style consultant that has been working with Maison&Objet for over a decade as a trend spotter. Minimum is taking place in Hall 2.
Moving on to the next section which is ELEMENTS – curated by François Bernard, is showing the new standarts of living well, richemotions and sensations. The section brings pieces with referential elements in today’s design such as water, earth, fire and air. Bernard is a Parisian home furnishing expert who has also showcased collections at Maison&Objet. This section can be found at the Hall 1.
Then, following to the third and the last section, which is called YES FUTURE! – curated by Vincent Gregoire. Yes future has the designs which are influenced by emerging technologies. The selections in this part is sketching the future and bonding senses and sensuality. Gregoire is currently working for Nelly Rodi agency in Paris. Yes Future can be found at Hall 3.
These two and a half days were amazing and if we have to describe Maison&Objet, so far would be overwhelming, exciting and, for the most part, pretty inspirational.
