Maison & Objet returned to Paris’ Parc Des Expositions for their January edition, with an interior focus on reworking natural textures and natural materials. If in September the salon leaned towards nature, this time nature was harnessed, focussed and applied.

The Cypriot designer Michael Anastassiades was chosen as Designer of the Year, which was fitting as his eponymous lighting brand launched in 2007 at the salon. He showed a poetic selection of pendant lights, that evoked the mobile sculptures of Alexander Calder, turning softly on hydraulics for the presentation.

As our world addresses the urgency of looking towards its own future, people take to the streets and the outdoor comes indoor. It’s time to welcome the wild into your domestic paradise and celebrate the beauty of the natural world.
