MAISON&OBJET Paris occupies a unique place among Europe’s major trade fairs in that it takes place twice a year, in January and now in September. However, a closer look at this late-summer fireworks display of thematically related exhibitions, events and activities indicates that ʻtrade fairʼ is not really an adequate term to describe it.
From 5 to 9 September an exhibition area measuring a quarter of a million square metres will be bustling with life at the Parc des Expositions de Paris-Nord Villepinte. In addition to the established trade fair focal points in Halls 1 to 6, Halls 7 and 8 will – under the ʻLuxury & Designʼ label – feature scènes d’intérieur, M&O | projets | and now! design à vivre.
The fact that the Paris Design Week is intelligently timed to coincide with the fair means that at the beginning of September the French capital will become a single superlative design experience offering countless opportunities to get to know the very latest trends and visions, and not only an exciting creative scene, but also its main protagonists.
