Maison & Objet 2013


Maison & Objet, the international decoration and design fair held twice a year in Paris, has returned to the city of light. This new edition, with more than 3,200 exhibitors in 130,000 m2, 2.5% more than the one held in January, has on this occasion welcomed 47% of foreign visitors, most of them from Belgium, Italy, Germany, Great Britain and Switzerland. Spain, together with South Korea, Japan, Australia and Great Britain, was one of the countries with the highest growth in visitor numbers.

Beyond the 3 Inspirations spaces proposed by the ‘Maison & Objet Observatory' under the motto of ‘Energies’, the fair offered a varied programme, with the presentation of the work of the architect Odile DECQ as 'Creator Maison & Objet 2013', the discovery of six emerging French creators in the ‘Talents à la Carte’ section, and the immersion space dedicated to the latest lighting technologies, among others, as well as the different themed cafeterias and restaurants and the animations proposed in the corridors between pavilions. The 'Maison & Objet |projets|' show, transformed in the fair’s excellence zone, provided interior design solutions for architects, designers and planners looking for elements to differentiate their projects.

Initiatives such as 'my Maison & Objet', an unusual orientation space where visitors, with the help of a team of experts, could outline a personalised route was one of the novelties at this edition, which incorporated expanded contents and services through the greater legibility of the offering, more proficient visitor routes, fostering networking, etc. The fair, whose next edition in the French capital is due to take place in early 2014, will in that same year launch its Maison & Objet Asia and in 2015 will be presenting the first Maison & Objet America, which will be hosted by the Miami Beach Convention Center.
