“The Tom Dixon studio is at the very heart of everything we do. Working internationally, with bases in London, New York, LA and Tokyo, every aspect of our creative output originates in one studio from one highly collaborative team.”
“Today, Fendi Casa offers a glamorous and cosmopolitan lifestyle, with a collection that ranges from contemporary to modern to classic. An interior project that anticipates new living concepts, strongly characterized by a refined aesthetic, and an atmosphere born of harmonious fusion between design and fashion.”
“Zaha Hadid Design creates a wide variety of pieces for living and for the home, from architecturally inspired homeware, and sculptural jewelry, to limited edition furniture, and innovative installations and interiors.”
“Trade shows have always been a way for brands to unveil their latest collections, the design trade comes together in hopes of finding the next best thing, products are sold and contacts exchanged but relationships and connections get lost in time and business.”
“Sempre is not just your regular wholesale company or your everyday production house. We want to share what really matters to us: joyful experiences created by our Sempre family. By spreading our philosophy we encourage a stress-free and happier lifestyle.”
DESIGNER OF THE YEAR PIERRE CHARPIN IS HERE
Maison et Objet’s chosen designer of the year will be showcasing his creations in hall 7 for the whole five days.
Plastic artist, scenographer and interior designer Pierre Charpin was at M&O for the whole 1st day, with all the attention drawn to the designer during an exciting conference dedicated to praise his incredible work.
During the conference “Pierre Charpin, a Design Open to Experiences”, the designer explained the importance of the sketching phase before the conception of the actual pieces. While sketching, Charpin makes sure to draw every idea, in order to “put aside all the ideas that don’t fit in”. The materials that are going to be used in his pieces are also chosen during the sketching process, as it helps the artist conceptualize and see his ideas more clearly. As Pierre Charpin said, “it is the starting point of the project”. Through his original and happy drawings he is able to soften the coldness of raw materials like marble.
Finally, when questioned about the process of working in partnerships and with clients, Charpin made it simple: “Design doesn’t exist if you work alone, it only happens through dialogue. Dialogue is everything.”
