Material ConneXion Italia, the leading international network of research and consultation on innovative and sustainable materials, presents at Maison & Objet the first Paris edition of Materials Village, a village structured into “houses” each dedicated to a project related to the world of materials and production processes.
After becoming one of the landmarks of Milan Design Week and the London Design Festival, Materials Village arrives in Paris to present a project that wants to propose a proper relationship between space dedicated to innovation and space available for materials manufacturers to present their products. The hub of Material ConneXion Italia will be in the Hall 8, the pavilion dedicated to design solutions for architects and interior designers. In this context, therefore, the materials will take centre stage thanks also to the presence of a “materials library” with a selection of the most innovative materials.
Within this Parisian edition will also be presented the installation, curated by Studio Marco Piva, “Atelier Italien”, which will give an Italian interpretation of companies’ materials enhancing their technical, decorative and functional features. In the end, another important set up will be Abet Laminati, which is presented within Materials Village with a booth designed by Paola Navone, dedicated to Polaris, the surface that is warm and soft to the touch, anti-imprint, durable scratches and heat.
