Maison et Objet 2020: Minimalist design in the spotlight

Maison et Objet brings together, as it does every year, an impressive number of brands, from all universes, and whether they are joyfully emerging or proudly established, all came to present their novelties and the products that set them apart. Among them, our preference went towards minimal and well-made pieces, which naturally stood out thanks to a clean, efficient and very contemporary design. Here is our selection of products among 12 brands and designers to follow very closely.

 

 

101 Copenhagen 

 

The young Danish brand 101 Copenhagen founded in 2017, is the first to have drawn our attention to Maison et Objet, with a stand offering timeless pieces and novelties in beautiful materials. Indeed, 101 CPH is committed to offering objects and furniture in perfect harmony with the know-how and the Scandinavian tradition. The collection presented is all about natural shades, close to the earth and nature, with pieces made by craftsmen and whose inspiration also comes from Japanese technique and lifestyle.

 

In this sense, the vase series Cobra appeared to us to be a beautiful representation of the aesthetic aspirations of the brand, as well as the very massive Brutus Chair, the very mystical collection of Dawn Lamps and the rug and marble stool Neo set. Singular and symbol-filled pieces that are perfect ambassadors of minimalist design.

Asaf Weinbroom

 

Asaf Weinbroom is an industrial designer, whose studio has focused on the development of luminaires since 2009. Using mainly wood and simple and functional mechanical principles, his entire collection is handcrafted with a real concern for creating minimal environmental impact. The Israeli designer, in his creative process, has the desire to create high-performance luminaires thanks to a high-end craftsmanship that he himself has learnt being confronted with a country with a small industry compared to the rest of the world.

 

But it is precisely free from all the constraints related to mass production that Asaf Weinbroom has been able to experiment and create by putting forward his passion for moving objects and the art of articulating things that allow his lighting fixtures to transform themselves. Bringing together art, design, and technology, we are particularly passionate about the Sam Lighting presented at Maison et Objet representing a face, in-wall and hanging versions.

BEEM

 

Co-created by the renowned designer Samuel Wilkinson and lighting specialists Chris Stimson and Bujar Shkodra, the brand BEEM offers a collection of LED lights designed in a cheerful, graphic and highly contemporary aesthetic. The objective of BEEM is to offer lamps at the cutting edge of LED light source technology, with simple but bold shapes, capable of adapting to all types of environments.

 

The manufacturing process includes a strong commitment to creating luminaires that are designed to last, and to further maximize their performance, by relying on the highest quality components available today as well as hand-crafted manufacturing.

cc-tapis

 

The brand of high-end rugs cc-tapis took advantage of the Maison et Objet trade fair to present new products, including Plissé, designed by Cristina Celestino, Super Fake "Hot" by Bethan Laura Wood, and Bliss Natural by Mae Engelgeer, three of the most emblematic female designers who took part in the current collection. In addition to the product, the staging designed by Studio MILO was also very pleasant and allowed to truly immerse oneself in the dreamlike and retro-futuristic universe offered.

 

Already seen during the presentation of the catalogue Spectrum of cc-tapis, the stand integrates chromatic gradations with a clever visual impact, plunging us into an atmosphere borrowed from the past as from fiction ...

Cruso

 

Cruso is a young Belgian brand whose philosophy and concept will inspire many. Indeed, while offering warm and minimalist design furniture, the company has adopted an environmentally friendly production process by, for instance, using only local and sustainable raw materials. Each piece is made in Europe and has been imagined by renowned designers such as Keiji Takeuchi, Julien Renault, Jean-François D'Or, Big Game and Benoît Deneufbourg.

 

Pure lines, noble materials, quality at the service of work environments as well as residential projects. Refined details that make us believe in this brand and its strong potential for the future. Would we not have here something worthy of a Muuto in its early days?

Darkroom

 

Darkroom is one of the good surprises of this edition of Maison et Objet 2020. Although having an in-store presence since 2009 at London, it was a true discovery for us. We particularly loved the new collection of furniture, simple, geometric and so colorful, with a particular affection for its big thickness, so singular.

 

Among the novelties, the brand that tends to make design accessible by moving ever more towards bold colors and patterns, presented a series of abstract wall prints in perfect harmony with the furniture series. Darkroom is a brand that does not leave indifferent, everyone will inevitably see his curiosity piqued by a beautiful object of the booth...

ENOstudio

 

The French publisher ENOstudio also presented its new products, including an interesting wall light, Beluga. Indeed, this piece stands out from the others by its innovative design and unexpected shapes, and although at first designed for a Parisian environment, it is totally easy to imagine it in the most beautiful apartments in London, Milan or even New York.

 

Moreover, the brand's objective is to position itself as an ambassador of the French design, by bringing up to date details and styles that have made France a great nation in the decorative world.

Mathieu Peyroulet

 

Within the selection Rising Talents highlighting this year several French designers, we has a crush on the refined work of Mathieu Peyroulet. The designer, after graduating from Ensci Les Ateliers, was selected to take part in numerous residencies and design and art festivals, including the Villa Noailles, the Cité de la Céramique and Villa Kujoyama, in Japan.

 

From these events were born delicate pieces, made of glass, ceramics, for which the process of research seems to hold the designer firmly to heart, always more inventive when it comes to a material he loves and is fascinating about...

Pierre de Valck

 

The young designer Pierre de Valck has exhibited a series of furniture with a minimalist design, in the selection Maison et Objet stand Belgium Design booth. The will of the Belgian designer is here to highlight the raw and exceptional aspect of several million years old mineral stones, as precious objects containing the collective memory of time. Both functional and decorative, the collection highlights different materials such as Jasper stone, Lapis Lazuli and petrified wood.

 

With a desire for real sustainability, the work of Pierre de Valck is undeniably part of a translation, but also an insertion of the symbolism in everyday life, with the aim of creating attachment to an object that has become precious, for each individual, but also for the collective.

 

"A stone is a stone, but when offsetted onto an aluminum backdrop, it suddenly becomes a jewel with a story to tell."

Techxture

 

Techxture merges technology and textures to generate unconventional design objects, and was founded after the association of the interior design studio As Duas por Três and Digitalab, using the technological know-how Pear Panel. With the firm intention of blurring the lines between art, design and technology, the collective explores materials such as marble, engineered stone, ceramics and recycled glass by reinventing them, giving them new assets and new forms, thanks to the modern technology and digital manufacturing.

 

Thus, Techxture has appropriated the principle of morphing, which consists in merging forms, objects, materials, in order to metamorphose them into a new and third state. The collective, exploring new forms, also seeks to detect new functions...

Toni Grilo

 

Designer Toni Grilo was also in the spotlight at Maison et Objetwith a presentation of his recent work for several brands, including INOT, Marm and BlackCork. Many of these pieces have marble as a common raw material, including the extraordinary chair Arco, and a new lighting series called Satelite, for Marm.

 

A new and elegant way of conceiving the design of marble objects, including roundness and therefore a certain delicacy in the forms, whether it be the luminaires or the chair. In any case, here are beautiful and promising pieces for the evolution of these brands.
