This year celebrated the 20th year anniversary of Le Salon at Maison et Objet. And once again creativity, innovation, and inspiration were found. Some of our favorites:
As our palates evolve to include more diversity in our everyday dining, the table is becoming a junction of the world. The collection aspires to celebrate the dining habits of the world. The result is fresh, eclectic, and diverse.
Eleven countries were curated and analyzed for the collection: China, Egypt, England, Finland, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Morocco, and Scotland. An engraved symbol marks each object in the collection, indicating its country’s origins.
Although still in production phase… prices and ship dates still pending… these beautiful modular pieces are bound to bring people together!
These food-safe and waterproof resin bowls are the brainchild of mischer’traxler – the Vienna design studio. The pieces not only capture the imprint of a fruit/vegetable but hint at the color you find inside that said fruit/vegetable. As a collection the colors are muted pastels as many palettes du jour. We especially loved the high contrast between the extreme imprint texture side by side with the smooth and uniform exterior.
The larger platters incorporate three different leaf species (diffenbachia, ficus elastica, monstera).
Combining traditional craft with a sleek, contemporary design, this carafe was inspired by the Mate, a cup specially made to drink yerba mate infusion in South America. Made of dried calabash, a fruit capable of storing liquids, the simple self-standing structure and handle is generated by shaping natural leather around the rounded contour of the calabash. Then it’s reinforced by stitching using cotton yarn, previously dyed with the distinctive green pigment of yerba mate leaves.
