5 – 9 September 2014

This year;s theme is ‘Sharing’

The Observatoire de MAISON&OBJET has clicked on the “share” icon and is reflecting the latest influences in design and decoration. With the running theme “Sharing”, it explores the dynamics of “creative sharing” and foresees a benevolent future. Immerse yourself in the new Inspirations Trend Book and discover its perspectives in Hall 7, in the spaces designed by Vincent Grégoire for Nelly Rodi, François Bernard and Elizabeth Leriche.

Our era is clicking on the “Share” icon. Generation G for Generosity is bashing cynicism and liking “We”. New uses and values are reconfiguring ways of living together, exchanging information, goods, services and experiences. In the digital age, networking information is producing new tools with emerging practices in an economy of collaboration and cooperation. We are seeing a dynamic of creative sharing which is programming the future of a caring world.

 

Designer of the year is Tom Dixon

Tom Dixon, MAISON & OBJET’s 2014 Designer of the year, blows a whiff of London air into Paris. He creates an ephemeral workshop in partnership with the high echnology company Trumpf. This “instantaneous factory”
produces, in real time, a collection of diffusers and candles with a London fragrance. The packaging, products and boutique are like the event: unique.

Conference

Friday, September 5th from 11 am to 11.45 am
The conference space, Hall 7
The talented, hard-to-categorize Tom Dixon is always where you least expect him: an art director, interior designer, entrepreneur, designer, fashion designer, author… His collections are distributed throughout the design world; his spaces are glamorous and authentic. His is the success story of a self-made designer.

Foster + Partners Reveals Designs for United Arab Emirates Pavilion at 2015 Milan Expo

1

Designs have been revealed for the United Arab Emirates pavilion at the 2015 Milan Expo. Bringing the planning principles of the traditional desert city to Milan, the pavilion’s interior of self-shaded streets evokes the experience of the UAE’s ancient communities, while demonstrating the natural energy efficiency of their compact urban form.

The pavilion occupies a large site close to the centre of the Expo and is accessed via its main circulation axis, the decumanus. From here, visitors are drawn into the mouth of a canyon-like space, defined by two undulating 12-metre-high walls. Influenced by ancient planning principles, the paths through the pavilion evoke the narrow pedestrian streets and courtyards of the ancient desert city – and its contemporary reinterpretation in the sustainable Masdar City masterplan in Abu Dhabi.
