Paris: Maison et Objet
Maison & Objet, the leading interior trade show in Paris, has just closed but of course PIET moodshop has already spotted all the must-have interior tips for 2016. So here are the best in show, just for you!
HIGHLIGHTS MAISON ET OBJET
- Tom Dixon
Ochre gold was named the trend colour of 2016 by Colour Futures and it is easy to see why. Think intensely warm, a little nostalgic but, above all, drop-dead glamorous. This yellow can easily compete with a lot of bling and gold, something that Tom Dixon was quick to pick up on. Plenty of reasons, in other words, why this colour should be featured in your interior.
Tom Dixon's Oil Collection, which features scented candles, incense sticks and vases, is also amazing. The glassware, a combination of copper and gold, with crisp blues and greens, is really a match made in heaven.
Soon you will also be able to find Tom Dixon's MELT light fixtures in the PIET moodshop showroom!
- Recycle! Upclycle! By DD Trans
Subtle yet visible imperfections and a rough finish: perfect has definitely gone out of fashion! Did you know that a nonchalant twist is "in" in 2016? The designer DD Trans turns old lids and paint cans into mirrors! Perfectly imperfect!
- HiBi 10 minutes aroma
Outdoor is definitely in vogue this year and adds an instant touch of "Mother Nature". Scents from Awaji-shima Island and matches from Harima (Hyogo, Japan) will infuse your home with delicious Japanese fragrances. 10 minutes aroma by HiBi is a completely new approach to enjoying a fragrance. This unique aesthetic style makes it possible to enjoy an aromatic scent at any time of the day, even without a flame!
- FCK - collection by Frédérick Gautier
Concrete jungle fever! Anyone who knows something about architecture is familiar with the name of Le Corbusier. The man of the gigantic concrete structures who had dreams about vertical cities. Le Corbusier had a strong influence on twentieth-century architecture. The French designer Frédérick Gautier, who is a great admirer of Le Corbusier's modernism and brutalism, accepted a rather interesting challenge. He spent three months living in Le Corbusier's "floating home", a 70-metre long floating building made of reinforced concrete.
Frédérick was inspired by his passion for pure form to design his "T"tea pot. An excellent example of how a location can influence a design. Frédérick thinks that there is much more to ceramics than merely designing an object with a function and a simple, good shape. That is why he decided to have a limited edition of 100 teapots cast in ceramic concrete. He was inspired by the immense, concrete surroundings of his floating home, which led him to design these concrete tea pots.
