Last weekend I was in Paris for the internationally acclaimed Maison et Objet interior design trade fair. It is by far and away one of the world’s best interior design fairs covering an enormous area at the parc des expositions site to the north east of Paris.
The selection of lighting designers at Maison et Objet is absolutely second to none and we thought it would be helpful to share our highlights here on the blog.
This is the drape pendant light by SkLO – an American design studio that designs lighting made from Czech glass. SkLO is dedicated to working with the Czech glass tradition so they work with glassmasters in the Czech Republic to produce their designs.
Mullan Lighting was established by architect Mike Treanor in 2008 to bring his many influences from design in travel to life in the form of beautifully hand crafted luminaires for the world to enjoy. They export to all corners of the globe with Guinness, Google, Costa Coffee and the Royal Family amongst an extensive list of clients.
We’ve written about CTO Lighting before on the blog so it was really great to see them at Maison with their beautiful stand. CTO Lighting are based in London and supply contemporary lighting for some of the most prestigious interior design projects internationally and have been designing and manufacturing lighting for over 15 years.
ST OLED, an original variation of Thierry Gaulain’s celebrated I.Rain. This monumental work of art radiates a luminous shower of light, transforming an ordinary space into a real cathedral’s vault.
Danish company Ebb & Flow design and produce decorative lighting, using glass and metal. All their light shades are mouth-blown and hand-finished. The collection is made in warm colours with hints of greys.
All the models are made by their team of professionals in their workshops in the centre of Paris.
There were so many more amazing lighting companies at Maison – take a look at the website for the full list of exhbitors. The next show is in September 2016 so if you get the chance you must go – but be sure to wear flat shoes!
