Inspirations 2016

Theme “WILD”

Each season, the MAISON&OBJET Observatoire de la Maison decodes our times and analyzes new consumption behaviors to define a theme explored in the Inspirations book and staged at the show. The MAISON&OBJET Observatoire de la Maison invites you to sink your teeth into the WILD theme, by discovering the new Inspirations forum.

The leopard can not change its spots... 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. ReWild Yourself.

The MAISON&OBJET Observatoire

The Missions

In 2002, MAISON&OBJET created an «Observatoire de la Maison» which catalogues new trends in consumption and emerging lifestyles ...
During their work meetings, the members of the Observatoire bring together their striking discoveries, their emotions and their intuitions about emerging lifestyles. This time of collegial brainstorming helps define a topic as the running theme of the season. Emotions, Desires, Secret, Luxuries, Use, Intensity … the themes refer to major, all-encompassing trends and not the whims of fashion.
The theme is developed in 3 modes: the Inspirations film, the Inspirations itinerary, the Inspirations book.

The Approach

Deciphering the show's offer by highlighting the important trends.
Picking up the micro-signs that herald changing influences.
Defining the direction styles are moving in for the two annual sessions.
Breathing in the current atmosphere.
Exploring and gathering clues that forecast the future.
Detecting and analyzing new attitudes.
Spying on our latest quirks.
Dissecting our wants.
That’s the daily of the MAISON&OBJET Obervatoire members... A tool for understanding.
