MAISON&OBJET 6-10 SEPTEMBER
Maison&Objet Paris has been around since 1995 as the international trade fair for the lifestyle, decoration and design sector, and today more than ever it has become the not-to-be-missed event for industry professionals seeking clever design solutions to help attract and retain customers.
Nowadays, anyone who steps through the door of a café, hotel or restaurant is looking for so much more than tasty food or a comfortable place to stay. Today’s customers are demanding, ultra-connected and increasingly aware of how their surroundings look, even if they’re just there to grab a quick coffee! They’re keen to explore new vibes and discover ‘Instagrammable’ venues offering one-of-a-kind experiences that don’t just satisfy their tastebuds but stimulate every single sense.
Structured around key themes, the event showcases a myriad of brands that are absolute musts across the entire hospitality sector. The ‘Forever’ (timeless classics), ‘Unique & Eclectic’ (championing global creativity), and ‘Today’ (a distillation of the spirit of our times) zones notably attract café owners, hoteliers and restaurateurs, inviting them to cast their eye over a selection of the very latest furnishings and design solutions from international designers.
Besides the big-name manufacturers and makers that exhibit at every edition alongside a multitude of smaller scale craftsmen and artisans, numerous up-and-coming talents also emerge each year.
The upcoming edition of MAISON&OBJET PARIS is set to celebrate the art of hospitality, sharing and savouring. The perfect opportunity for industry professionals to explore new concepts, make new contacts and discover thousands of brands.
Who better to fly the flag for this edition than Designer of the Year, Laura Gonzalez, who’ll be staging a café area in Hall 7? This young architect with inexhaustible creative flair has already put her design stamp on a whole host of hotels and restaurants, including Le Relais Christine, 86 Champs, Manko, Noto and Lapérouse, making her one of the sector’s go-to names.
The conference sessions chaired by industry experts will offer a brand-new insight into the impact interior design is having on the hotel and restaurant trade. Triple Michelin-starred chef Frédéric Anton and the architect Aline Asmar D’Amman will take to the stage to chat about the design of the prestigious Eiffel Tower-based restaurant, the Jules Verne, whilst the Managers of the La Réserve group will offer an insight into the secrets behind their confidential hotels’ closely cherished identity.
