    Maison et Objet is an international platform for the latest trends in decor, interior design, and architecture. Held bi-annually, it has been described as "among the three most important European events for interior design - a huge collection of innovation and talent all in one place.

    This year WonderGlass stole the show with their ‘Cabinet of Curiosities,’ an installation full of whimsy and surprise showcasing some of their finest works by design luminaries Claesson Koivisto Rune, Nao Tamura, Marcel Wanders, Dan Yeffet and Hideki Yoshimoto. The imaginative brand develops and manufactures beautifully crafted lighting sculptures, bespoke installations and chandeliers. Their installation, divided into quadrants, showcased delicate creations framed against large backlit photographs created in the Italian Dolomites.

    Under the creative direction of WonderGlass, the display showcased a contrast of nature and human creation and featured brilliant smoke clouds of hot pink and azure blue. From Dan Yeffet’s experimental floor sculpture ‘Hollow’ (2016) to Claesson Koivisto Rune’s elegant chandelier ‘Grappa’ (2014), the objects on show have been carefully selected from WonderGlass’s catalogue of work over the last five years, with the addition of ‘Hollow’ presented for the first time in blue.

    Lasvit arrived ready to inspire visitors with a complex presentation of glassware introducing pieces to be seen for the first time as well as additions within their most successful lighting collections. To bring these collections alive, Lasvit cooperated with well recognized designers such as Yabu Pushelberg, Kengo Kuma, Jan Plechac and Henry Wielgus. Among many authors of glassware collections, Maxim Velcovsky, Art Director of Lasvit, presented two brand new collections of glasses.

    One of Lasvit’s most admired lighting collections Neverending Glory has a new variety called Neverending Glory small which is exactly half size compared to the original one. The Yakisugi glassware collection follows its older sister, the lighting collection introduced at Salone del Mobile 2017, and is inspired by the ancient Japanese technique for preserving construction timber by charring its surface. 

    Vitra showcased the latest additions to their Accessories Collection. The range exudes a springtime vibe in a series of fresh colours. Jasper Morrison has designed two new companions for his popular Rotary Tray. The diverse organisers come in a range of colours and tidy up any space throughout the house – even the garden table – with an inspirational decorative touch. Also adding to the collection, Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec have created a new version of their Nuage vase, which now comes in ceramic with an appealing handcrafted look. With the addition of new Wall Reliefs, Table- cloths and an Embroidered Pillow, all by Alexander Girard, the classic range of accessories has also been revamped.

    La Chance, representing the best in French design, hosted a secret bar at Maison in which they showcased the classic Tembo Stool. A new take on a classic design, Emile Lagoni and Werner Valbak used iconic patterns of Parisian fabrics and mixed them with precious marbles to create six numbered limited edition versions of the Ronin Chair. New designs were also on display, the Sunday Dining and coffee tables are made of marble legs and a wooden top; while Bump is a new collection of cabinets in galvanized steel and marble. A Bump prototype was first presented at Spazio Roanna Orlandi in Milan 2016 by Czech Designers Jan Plechac & Henry Wielgus. This piece was the base concept for 2 years of work between La Chance and the designers to develop the Bump collection of credenza and cabinets.

    This was Maison et Objet's biggest year to date. Promoting new contacts and emerging talents, twice a year designers present the latest sources of inspiration by shedding insight into current and future trends. As a result, the event has become an effective catalyst for brand development and business growth.
