Ilse Crawford has designed this welcoming haven amidst the trade show’s “visual noise” to create a place where visitors can shut out the hustle and bustle, reflect on what they have seen and recharge their batteries. A reusable wooden frame sets the stage in a space that features furniture and lighting to meet all your needs, as well as a profusion of plants. Take a deep breath … Life feels good at the DESIGNERS’ STUDIO.

Each president introduces his associations and then meets each other to exchange, share information and plan some international cooperation.
This year, the International Associations Meeting welcomed : ADP (Spain), UFDI (France) Stylink (Netherlands), IIDA (USA), SIDS (Singapore), IDCS (Singapore), DIA (Australia), Hong Kong Design Center (Hong Kong), ZUCDER (Turkey), DARA (Argentina), SBID (UK), IIID (India), Shenzhen Furniture Association- Shenzhen International Design Union (China), Shenzhen CDA (China) et la BDIA (Germany).
We would like to thank all the members of these associations for their participation and hope to see you in January, with more associations.

Delphine Denis-Pidoux et Nadine Rapp
“We were delighted to participate in this exchange with other associations of interior designers from several countries.
It was very rewarding to hear their careers, their projects. As we are a recent association (4 years), it inspires us and motivates us a lot.
After the official presentation, we talked with every participant, and we hope that may lead to collaborations.”

“ Attending the Associations meeting at M&O gave me insight to the developments of the international organizations supporting design professionals. It was a great chance to network with these associations on an individual level and create future business opportunities for our membership. ”

Philippe Deroy
“I am delighted to have been a part of the International Associations Meeting during the last edition of Maison & Objet Paris. It is a major initiative from the organizers to create that specific environment for business community leaders. I enjoyed being in contact with colleagues and hear their presentations that allowed me to understand how the associations in other countries work. I would like, in the future, to create a debate among associations on specific issues, such as promoting design or interaction between business and industry.”

Philippe Deroy, Member of the board of DArA (Decoradores Argentinos Asociados)
