Maison & Objet Paris Janvier 2016 : WILD

In a world where abound domestication, urbanization and technology, nature seeks to reassert itself by venturing off the beaten track. It is by this fact that members of the Observatoire de Maison & Objet have chosen for the next edition, taking place in Paris from January 22 26 2016 to the WILD theme.

Through an imaginary which ensauvage, designers get their ideas in the innocence of an intact landscape, the harmony of Mother Earth, the deep forest. This seasonal theme is declined in three modes: the film Inspirations, the course and the Inspirations Inspirations Book.

"Between the threat of disappearance and hope for a rebirth, nature takes over and is expressed in its first stages, the savage the sacred." Marie-Jo Malait, Editor of the Book Inspirations.

François Bernard, designer of Space Inspirations, the "wild" theme appeared as a synthesis of two current trends, the soft and raw, sophisticated and raw. The idea is to get out of our comfort zone to ask us about our place in the living, to find the broken link between man and nature through disciplines as diverse as the arts, gastronomy, the lifestyle, cosmetics and decorative arts.

Space Inspiration opens with the original idea of ​​the wild, with the evocation of the deep forest. It continues with the idea of ​​the savagery of the city in its interstices, but also in the architecture of residential and commercial landscapes. Finally, the last section of the exhibition deals with a more spiritual dimension of the theme around the sacred and the ritual. This Space Inspiration will be extended by the Wild Café and Bookstore, designed by Elizabeth Leriche. Finally, a conference space will open up the subject and return it in the broader context of current trends.

Maison & Objet Paris, from January 22 26 2016 to, Exhibition Centre Paris Nord Villepinte, from 9h30 to 19h except Tuesday January 26 up 18h.
