Maison & Objet Paris – Cosmopolitan innovation with a vibrant aesthetic

The news was positive from the first Maison & Objet exhibition of the year in Paris. According to the organisers in their post-show review, “The global interior industry has grown by two per cent this year. This new-found momentum was confirmed during the January 2018 Maison & Objet. The fair registered an increase in visitor numbers, with figures for French and international buyers markedly on the rise, and inspired visitors with a high-end offering unlike any other, both comprehensive and carefully segmented.” The January 2018 edition confirmed the upturn that began the previous year. “With 89,495 visitors, the latest edition received four per cent more visitors than the January 2017 fair. French buyers, whose numbers have been growing steadily for the past four editions, thronged the halls with renewed interest. The fair is also seeing increasingly more visitors hailing
from outside the EU, with the highest growth rates for China, the USA and Russia.” As for the show’s main exhibition highlights, Maison & Objet’s “very special relationship with Italy” resulted in the country being honoured again at the January fair. “The Rising Talents Awards revealed six up-and-coming names on the Italian design scene, each sponsored by one of six famous figures of the creative industry. Additionally, the ICE Italian Trade Promotion Agency launched a ‘Made in Italy’ label, which identified 300 companies located all around the fair. Italy remains the second largest source of exhibitors after France. Referring to “a wave of novelty sweeping across the halls, Philippe Brocart, managing director of SAFI, the company that organises Maison & Objet, reported, “Nine out of 10 visitors are primarily looking for new products. Other motivations include the chance to discover tomorrow’s trends and meeting new suppliers.” Meanwhile, MOM (Maison & Objet & More), an online service launched one year ago to complement the physical event, has been gaining increasingly wide audience “due to its innovative concept and inspiring content. The digital platform is growing exponentially and keeping the community engaged all year round.” www.maison-objet.com
