Intensity is the theme chosen this year by the MAISON&OBJET Observatory. It is a relevant description of this new and eventful edition. More than a business platform, MAISON&OBJET crystallises the energy of home-style that now lives at almost the same pace as fashion.
To grasp all the key points, the exhibition proposes its inspiration trends book and a range of events in the event through its trend areas. Times for thinking and projecting that give MAISON&OBJET all its intensity!

MAISON&OBJET did not wait for the French gastronomic meal to enter the world immaterial heritage list to celebrate culinary creativity. For the third time, the Paris des Chefs event pays tribute to gastronomic creation with an even more elaborate edition. In three days, twenty chefs from all over the world enter centre stage, dialogue with twenty personalities all from the creative environment. The originality of this cross-cutting insight invites us to think about creative processes that are mutually enriching and define the future of the domestic landscape. More than ever, we are what we eat!
With the Guzzini Food Design, exhibition, it is possible to add: what we eat influences everyday objects. For the past four years, the Italian brand offers designers from different countries the chance to imagine projects based on a list of meals.
After Italy, Germany, Japan, it is now the turn of French designers and architects to interpret a list of foods ranging from condiments to pastries in an object. With these two events, MAISON&OBJET helps to nourish the inspiration of visitors. Gastronomy is a good means of approaching conviviality, the return to local values and the breakthrough of concepts that introduce exceptional food products that may be found in the Histoire de Goûts sector into the world of décor through the guiding thread of the La Table sector.
Low tech VS High tech
From craft to now! design à vivre, MAISON&OBJET expresses the whole range of home design, which, from low tech to high tech, embodies the variety of the home today. Two exhibitions summarise this 360° vision. Artytube by the NellyRodi agency has, for several sessions, show us the best in arts and crafts and Tech now ! at now design à vivre! For the second edition of this event, it explores image in January after having proposed its insight on sound in September 2010.
