As geopolitical isolation gives way to international rapprochement for Iran, all eyes are on how this highly educated, culturally rich, as well as commodity rich, nation is going to develop. While certain sectors have undoubtedly been affected by decades of sanctions, the Iranian architecture scene – bereft of Western starchitectural interventions – has managed to flourish.

 

Our ‘Architecture Iran’ series looks at a range of projects completed recently in the Islamic Republic from a number of angles, with its second installment focusing on how the old Persian concerns of geometry and light are enjoying a renaissance in contemporary architectural praxis.

Specification is the name of the game at this January’s edition of MAISON&OBJET in Paris.

 

With interior architects and designers Philippe Boisselier and Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance tasked with delivering an engaging scenography, the fair – held once again at the city’s Parc des Expositions in Paris Nord Villepinte – has been given an overhaul in terms of organisational logic. Visitors will be invited to get up close and personal with high-end products and materials across three new hubs – Maison, Objet and Luxury, Design and Interior Decoration.

 

Of particular interest to architects, interior architects, designers and planners will be Luxury, Design and Interior Decoration, and the ACTUEL Contract exhibition, which brings together textile producers, materials experts, as well as specialists in bespoke furniture, coverings and lighting. Also of interest: the DESIGNERS’ STUDIO in Hall 8, which, open to specifiers and labelled SpecialArchiDesigners exhibitors only, offers a comfortable and practical workspace and hospitality area in which you can get down to business.
