My favourite tradeshow is Maison & Objet in Paris let me tell you why.
1. inspiring street style
Maison & Objet means commuting a whole lot – each day I have an hour forth and an hour back the opportunity to study the excentric fashion choices of the Parisians – OUI!
Ohh, and there is an account that is exclusively interested in trash…
2. Flower Power
The tradeshow itself is massive, that’s why I never manage to get a real overview. But my eye was catched by the tropical gardens of @polspotten.
The London-based Marcin Rusak was awarded as a ‘rising talent’ – he found a method to keep flowers for eternity in his Bauhaus light objects.
3 Beauty everywhere
Instead of the Louvre I love the small artist museums in Paris, like Musée Rodin or Musée Picasso. The later hosts a Giacometti-Picasso exhibition at the moment. Both artists grew up in their fathers studio and where already exceptionally gifted artists by the age of 15.
I always have to pay visits in the Paris parks. This time I discovered a new one: Parc des Buttes Chaumont – you can’t imagine a more romantic scenery! The small pavilion with a view to Sacre Coeur can be reached over a swing bridge.
4 Our amazing neighbours in the BELOVED section
At our neighbouring stands I discovered a few things I would like to share.
Fisura not only does wonderful light boxes – no, cactus and ananas candles (don’t you dare to light them) are in their range as well.
A small cardboard samurai ready as DIY kit for you – that’s my absolute favourite! Unfortunately the origami samurai is not on Instagram yet 🙁 The producers told me they need 20 mins to built one of them – with a challenging smile on their face.
The beautiful italian brand Write&Sketch has a distinctive style for all of you who love shapes and colours!
While the young brand sweet & sour from the Netherlands takes up everything we love anyway: rainbow colors for example.
5 Art Festivals
I came across a small market hall that seemed to be the opposite of the Maison & Objet mega tradeshow, a small art festival with amazing music. I believe in the Paris variety.
