  MAISON&OBJET PARIS to explore the theme of Comfort  
The September 2017 edition of MAISON&OBJET PARIS will be exploring the theme of Comfort and its creative expression in the lifestyle sector. This theme was the product of year-round collective work by the members of the MAISON&OBJET Observatory.

In the upcoming edition, designer François Bernard will take over the Inspirations Space to present a selection of objects by exhibiting brands, and the Bookshop-Café with a variety of sources illustrating the theme.

In addition, the Inspirations Book will shed light on the theme from various forward-looking perspectives, while the Conference Space will provide an opportunity to further explore the notion of Comfort with a five-day programme of debates on current related trends.

Marie-Jo Malait, Coordinator for the MAISON&OBJET Observatory and Editor-in-Chief of the Inspirations Book, tells about the theme: “Join us on this journey away from the discomfort zones of an unstable and insecure world. It is about time we shifted to a new paradigm of well-being at home. So, do we achieve that? By soothing both body and soul. To satisfy our yearning for rest and quiet, shapes become rounder, more enveloping. They wrap us up in a protective and comforting cocoon. Funny-looking cushions on legs replace chairs and provide the perfect place to sit and relax. Soft materials are everywhere and contribute to our well-being. References to bubbles, balloons, nests, clouds, even pods and husks, feed the creative imagination behind this new-generation cocoonection. Greyish pastels and faded pinks wash tensions away. The new vision of home chic highlights the refined aesthetic of our interiors. Greenhouse homes and passive houses are just waiting to be filled with a glorious Eden, while workplace architects and designers are also attempting to bring serenity into our daily professional lives. Innovative technology is being used to foster well-being. Both warm and casual, contemporary comfort meets comforting design. 100% feel good lifestyle.”
