Maison et Objet 2014 September Edition | Sept. 5-9 2014



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.


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.

“The Campana brothers have eco-design in their veins. Born 250km from São Paulo in a region with abundant natural resources, from their childhood they were immersed in a culture of craftsmanship and now offer «alternative», iconoclastic, joyful design, which opens new vistas for everyday life. The path they have taken from the day Humberto created a little studio for handmade objects 30 years ago through the twentieth anniversary of the Estudio Campana, celebrated in 2009 at the Vitra Design Museum in Germany, is a testament to a shared spirit of passion and everlasting brotherhood.”
