Best of Maison & Objet 2015

Paris in the autumn...the word might spark visions of whipped cream topped pastries, walks along the seine, and a sparkling Tour Eiffel. Not if you're there for design. Paris's bi-annual design trade show, Maison & Objet, that is. But M&O is so much more than just a design show. It is a collective celebration of the art of living in all shapes and forms. It is an intersection between creatives and the entrepreneurs of the creative world. And the diversity of the creations is matched by the trade show's collective of designers and studios from around the world showcasing everything from motion controlled lighting, an installation of floating flowers, new materials like concrete lace, to design inspired by nature and just about every unique combination in between.

Every year, Maison & Objet and the members of its Observatoire de la Maison choose a theme in keeping with the influences of the season. This year's theme is Precious. Set within the bounds of five major fields; the designers, artists, craftsman and creatives of M&0 are reinventing the codes of luxury and rarity.

Plane tickets are expensive, and trade shows are quite honestly, exhausting, which is why we've done the hard work for you and rounded up the best of Maison & Objet 2015 for you to enjoy on your own terms.

Pauline Betin La Fabrique du Verre

French Sculptor and artist Pauline Betin rediscovers bucolic images reimagined as miniature glass houses which explore the delineation between the landscape of city and countryside, and the intermediary space between man and nature, between glass and photograph, and man and nature.
 

"Looking for loopholes, my glass-paste sculptures are between urban and rural, inspired by landscape settings like the allotment."–Pauline Betin

Martine Mikaeloff Ceramique

French born and Belgium-based sculptor Martine Mikaeloff's craft reaches back to one of the oldest forms of design. Her ceramic plates and bowls are formed from clay by the artist's hands. Simple and refined, what sets her harmoniously connected creations apart is her particular use of enamel, the result of years of research. Otherworldly colours express Mikaeloff's connection with nature, the ultimate inspiration.

Wonderwall Studios

Wooden walls are no longer just a structural necessity. Wonderwall Studios are transforming wooden panelling into works of art that embrace the original form and grains of the exclusively salvaged wood they use to construct their 3-dimensional walls. By salvaged, they mean literally rescuing wood from abandoned houses, old floors and naturally fallen trees. This studio is all about reclamation and respect for trees and the communities and people they work with. Walls with morals.

Barbara Billoud

Ceramist Barbara Billoud moulds illusions out of clay. What you may think is an elegant birch tree encased mirror or vase, is in fact a ceramic sculpture painted to impersonate another material. And in keeping with her naturalist aesthetic, Billoud has collaborated with vegetal sculptor Genevieve Mathieu to create L'Arbre Feerique (The Fairy Tree). The poetic installation merges Billoud's delicate porcelain leaves with Mathieu's raw cut wood sculpting to create an interior garden that invert the materials assigned to natural elements.

Ibride

Carine Janin and Rachel and Benoît Convers founded the design publishing house of Ibride and ever since, have sought to break the archetypes and pursue an eclectic freedom of creation that operates on the fringe of the design world. The design house is exporting their quirky creations to more than forty five countries, and their style is recognisable at a glance. With references to the animal kingdom and destroyed archetypal shapes and concepts such as "Made in France" and classical museum like quality, they truly inhabit a unique breed of design.
 

"Because it is so special, the Ibride design is to be tamed."–Carine Jannin

Jimmie Marten

Mapper and Maison&Objet veteran Jimmie Martin is still putting his pop-art baroque meets rockn'roll stamp on his celebrity-adored furniture, and this time, that stamp is bleeding butterflies. This is the designer that doesn't care about shock-factor (remember the spiked chair featured in the suite of our Femme Fatale Event at the Exhibitionist Hotel?), he's a mad-scientist of design bringing the "unthinkable" to life.
