Maison Et Objet 2019 started today and we are so excited! The twice-yearly fair is still happening until 10th of September and it’s being held at Paris Nord Villepinte and it will be another opportunity to discover the unexpected and to explore the future of living. Today, My Design Agenda is going to show the highlight of day one! Take a look:
ROBERTO CAVALLI HOME TABLEWARE – Hall 7 — Stand F47
TALKS – “PLASTIC: A SECOND CHANCE” WITH ROSSANA ORLANDI
Bringing together designers, engineers and creatives, essential Milanese gallery owner Rossana Orlandi puts the spotlight on plastic: recycled, reworked, recovered, it shifts from the status of annoying waste to that of the material of the future. With Rossana Orlandi (Founder of Guiltless Plastic), Alexander Schul (Designer) and moderated by Clara Le Fort (Editor & Creative Director). Don’t miss the other great talks throughout the day!
LAURA GONZALEZ: DESIGNER OF THE YEAR
Laura Gonzalez is a top architect that is known for her amazing creations throughout the city of Paris, with classical style inspiration, on a set of restaurants, bars, hotels, and stores. Due to her amazing work, Maison Et Objet 2019 decided to recognize her for her masterwork and awarded her by naming her Designer of the Year.
During Maison Et Objet 2019, at the entrance of the Hall 7, you’re able to admire the Café Signature designed especially for the event. Inspire yourself in the world of Laura Gonzalez’s furniture in its luxurious and eccentric interior, while savoring a selection of dishes and pastries devised by Pierre Hermé. The expertise of Pierre Frey is showcased in a decor that features shapes, colors, and materials that only Laura Gonzalez could combine, a space defined by a mix of rounded shapes and bright colors.
Laura Gonzalez is currently busy working on a brand new project: renovating a mansion in the Vexin to create what she calls a “living showroom”. It’s a place where she’s inviting clients, craftsmen, chefs, journalists, in a space where she will display vintage finds. The pieces in the collection will sit alongside one-off creations designed hand-in-hand with craftsmen, such as an onyx backgammon table and an obsidian lamp.
