An exercise in structure, texture and material at the intersection of function and fiction. Rigorous and geometric frames are completed by soft or rounded covers, shells or inserts. The result is both familiar and otherworldly, yielding a family of pieces that are part furniture, part vessel. In addition of featuring a new collection of furniture by UM Project, the exhibition showcases Apparel, the newest knitted textile by Dutch brand FEBRIK.

Trend and Inspiration
Curated by Francois Bernard

L.U.M Lamp is featured in Maison and Objet's special exhibition in Paris
Now is the time for a simple timelessness that is nevertheless rich in emotions and sensations. Geometrical, archetypal, molecular or abstract forms are referencing elements like water, earth, fire and air. Design is drawing inspiration from meteorology and climatology to invent new expressions of today;s atmosphere. Between lightness and weightiness, power and transparency, force and fluidity, a new generation of objects is inviting us to dream.
