Best Design Projects: Most Amazing Stands From Maison Et Objet 2017 – Now that Maison et Objet 2017 has ended, it’s time to highlight the best moments and projects from the first big design event of the year. So, Best Design Projects gathered the most amazing stands from Maison et Objet 2017. During these type of events, the stand is one of the most important aspects and a true project for itself to consider when preparing for a fair. The stand is the perfect stage to present and highlight a brand’s products. So, it better be unique, distinguishing and, above all, according to the brand’s concept. Bearing this in mind, the truth is that there were a few brands that stood out from the crowd and deserve to be distinguished by Best Design Projects.
Every year Imperfetto Lab features one of the most incredible stands at Maison et Objet. This year was no different, with its Uno piece taking all the attentions to itself, an enormous and majestic piece that one can only dream of hanging in a royal home.
Myavie | Maison Koichiro Kimura
Japanese designer Koichiro Kimura was at Maison & Objet for the past five days to present his latest 100% recyclable furniture. Entirely made of polyethene fibres, these unique furniture items turn up to be very comfortable pieces. Below you can see how the fibres clearly look like and how they let the furniture breathe, as they can be very strong and malleable pieces.
Introducing their new Seletti wears Toilet paper rug collection at this year’s Maison et Objet – January edition – the Italian brand gained a free pass into our “most out of the box stands” selection. Throughout the five days, no one was indifferent with their stand. It’s refreshing to see something so different, bold and unique. See below a classic piece by Seletti: their little Mouse Lamps.
SWINE stands for Super Wide Interdisciplinary New Exploration and, above all, the Japanese architect Azusa Murakami and English artist Alexander Groves. Studio Swine was featured this year at M&O as part of the UK nominated rising talents. As unique as it gets, the design studio explores themes of regional identity and the future of resources in the context of globalisation. Studio Swine work manifests a deep research into materials and modern industrialisation.
“Silence” was M&O’s theme for the year. For that reason, in Hall 7 – next to the Conference area – you could find a stunning and embracing scenography by Elizabeth Leriche. The idea was to remind people that “like a remedy to the interminable racket of words and images, silence has a calming effect on the hyperactive, garrulous and loud times we live in. Home is a place where calm is restored and a growing desire for serenity can be expressed. Lifestyle and style give us the ‘silent treatment’.”
