Design Trend: Wild

Design tends MO16 WILD 1

For this January edition, Maison&Objet presented its inspirations spaces around the theme « Wild » with a scenography designed by François Bernard.

Design tends MO16 WILD 2

Between threat of disappearance and hope for revival, nature takes over, expressing itself in all its first states, from the wild to the sacred. Confronted with a world formatted by technology, urbanization and excessive domestication, the imaginary gets wilder off the beaten tracks, and finds refuge in the innocence of an essential, preserved landscape, untouched. Contemporary creation convenes wild spirits. We return to the forest to reset. Forms and materials reconnect with elements to be in line with Mother Earth. The wild poetic gleans the elementary, the raw, the misshapen, the corroded, the burnt, the scarified. We reinject some nature into the urban space, in search of new wastelands. As shamans, designers call upon the magic of spirits and supernatural forces.

The inspirations spaces was completed by a Bookstore in partnership with the 107 Rivoli and a coffee shop that offered some hot drinks devised by Marc Brétillot like a delicious coffee with cardamom, angelica roots and coal . All of this part was presented in a scenography by Elizabeth Leriche.

The ways of precious are numerous and wonderful. They have the beauty of the rare and wonder us about the ultimate luxury. What is really precious?

it immediately evokes the cut stones, the mysterious crimped, sublimation of materials by the genius of man. In art, the precious presents a character of great delicacy, gloss or wealth. It is often associated to gold, mirrors and ornaments. But even if all that is valuable is precious, precious is not the same for all.

Vincent Grégoire for Nelly Rodi’s Trends Space on Maison & Objet January 2015 put forward the technology in the making…

The hand, the tool of a new luxury, touches and transforms. From the alphabet of materials and the grammar of technique, the savoir-faire of neo-craftspersons writes sensitive and rare objects. These works demonstrate radical singularity beyond their function. The art of making is freeing the object itself from the mundane, thus giving it the possibility to leave its mark upon time.

Techno Made Vincent Grégoire Nelly Rodi Maison et Objet 3
The metamorphoses that separate the raw material from the finished piece illustrate a vast and fascinating range of savoir-faire. The hand plays the leading role in the theatre of technique. A tool of the mind, we assign it its own intelligence, with knowledge shared and enriched from one generation to the next. The world of luxury gives new life to its value by bearing witness to the steps required to realise exceptional products. Similarly, designers overwhelmingly endorse the sensuality and singularity to which such objects give rise, as a counterpoint to globalisation.

Origine Atelier

Life scientists, artists and designers summon the spirit of Mother Nature and dabble in her laws with rather sorcerer-like rituals. Letting chance, experiments and mutations made by these bio-magicians catalyse wondrous things. Thus are born fascinating creations that herald a new generation of objects.

Nature Made 5 Maison et objet François Bernard

Observing natural phenomena sustains the quest for knowledge and beauty. It leads scientists and designers towards a common experimentation platform. Their work anticipates approaches to manufacturing that mimic or utilise the ways living things develop, to recreate their fascinating magic and spontaneous mutations.

Alongside these empirical approaches are appearing new families of objects. They use organic properties and compose with time, to satisfy our need for contemplation and enchantment.

Fashion K.O.

After yoga and surfing, boxing has become the new fashionable sport. Whether on the catwalk, in gyms or Instagram, it seduces for its many benefits and modern philosophy. It seems to be an appropriate response to well being issues of the urban assets in an increasingly demanding society. Gym clubs multiply versions like Adi-Boxing or Body Combat to fit both female and male expectations. Sculpting the body, forging the mind, this sport has already conquered numerous celebrities like Adriana Lima and Alexandra Rosenfeld. Cara Delavingne and Karlie Kloss appear with gloves on social networks. Boxing also invites itself on the catwalks like in the collection Alexander Wang X H&M or the Chanel campaign for Fall/ Winter 2014/15. Karl Lagerfeld is inspired by it for his collaboration with Louis Vuitton. Moncler Gamme Bleue has made its theme about it for its spring/summer 2015 fashion show . To fetch some inspiration, I’ve prepared a mood board on pinterest.

Nu Disco

Nu Disco Music

A trend is growing in clubs all over the world and becomes unavoidable. This emerging new music scene is called Nu Disco. But what is ??? My friend Tsunami defined it as a smart music for smart people. For me, it’s mostly the return of melodies and « groovy » sounds in the techno as the good old House Music from the 90’s. The scene Nu Disco reinvents the sometimes dusty Disco of the 70’s and gives pride of place for vinyl with Re-Edit. This music with sexy and languiorous sounds is reminiscent of a sunset at the waterfront in the summer. No more blues ! We listen Nu Disco !!!
