For MAISON&OBJET PARIS, each of these two Designers must fit within the profile of each of the Paris shows, that is, a more product design-oriented profile in January and a designer more closely related to the world of interior architecture or decor for September.
In its next edition, MAISON&OBJET PARIS will pay tribute to creativity made in the UK with a brand new venture made possible thanks to the invaluable assistance of Sir John Sorrell, founder of the London Design Festival and the London Design Biennale. 6 star British designers from the worlds of architecture, fashion and design - Tom Dixon, Nigel Coates, Ilse Crawford, Paul Smith, Jay Osgerby and Ross Lovegrove - will sponsor a young artist whose work they wish to support.
Sponsor: Tom Dixon, Designer of the Year MAISON&OBJET 2014
This distinction which rewards the most impressive new products of the show is discerned by a jury which is completely composed of bloggers and web columnists. These new experts of «home fashion», whom are the link between the professionals and the general public will sift through the different sectors of the whole show, covering every alley in order to find the best. The new discoveries will be distinctly identifiable during the show by a new, fresh signage.
