TECH EDEN, This Edition’s Inspiration Theme: Adapting Your Projects to Tomorrow’s Challenges
Contemporary aesthetics have no choice but to adapt to the challenges of tomorrow, and new projects give a special place to nature. New technologies, essential to their implementation, are driving ever greater creativity and innovation. The Show’s Trend Forum, orchestrated by Peclers Paris, analyses, and interprets these developments, reflecting this season’s theme, TECH EDEN. Immerse in the hospitality of the future through three escape capsules, where iconic hospitality venues are hybridised to create new, more virtuous, and ever more desirable ones: wellness cafés, sports stations, spa rooms… Innovative, sensory experiences, like an invitation to travel and disconnect, only to find yourself again. The ultimate intimate escape, on the edge of reality. “A unique and fully experiential space, combining creativity, nature and technology to provide a warm welcome and comfort for customers,” says Mélanie Leroy.
Hospitality Lab X Studio REV, a Multidimensional Experience
“We also wanted to give carte blanche to studio REV, the firm that won the Paris Shop & Design 2023 prize, to provide us with another creative version of hospitality,” explains SAFI director Mélanie Leroy. A mix of light and materials, a friendly, gourmet reception area brimming with joy and good spirits: the Hospitality Lab in the heart of Hall 6 puts on an inspiring, innovative show. A multifunctional experience created by studio REV, halfway between the physical and the virtual, with a gigantic table combining wood and glass as its central element, conducive to socialising, whether at a table or just passing through, thanks to the on-sale and take-away offerings. Once again, Maison&Objet demonstrates its keen understanding of the expectations of hospitality market customers. More than a simple visit, it’s a genuine immersion in the heart of a place marked by a strong visual, functional, symbolic, and even poetic identity. A place where the worlds of avant-garde hospitality and retail come together, with a host of exceptional products.
Outonomy, Mathieu Lehanneur’s Outdoor Inspired Installation on a New Form of Autonomy
“An ecosystem for living, both minimal and optimal”. This is how Mathieu Lehanneur imagined his Outonomy project for Maison&Objet. With this outdoor-inspired installation in line with the TECH EDEN season theme, the Designer of the Year had no other ambition than to bring nature into our contemporary society.
The design of this scenography points to the future and reveals the need for freedom. Doing better with less, dealing with our surroundings while respecting the environment, getting back to basics but not on basics… “Far from nostalgia or an attempt to retrace our steps, Outonomy attempts to answer the question: what do I really need?” says the designer.
Baccarat, the Epitome of Iconic French Heritage
