Maison et Objet September 2016 will happen from 2-6 September in Paris. For this edition, the organization focused on the theme House of games. So we can expect playful ideas and collection to get inspired.
Enter the game, this realm rich of signs, shapes, colours and tales and reset creation. The playful spirit feeds from the board gaming aesthetic but also from gambling or balance game. Draughtboards, pawns, card games, dices, dominos, tarots … There is always a good reason to have fun. The rule of the game ? Dramatize the settings, betting on a joyful and elegant maximalism, we pick the Beautiful Bizarre card. The luxury of this new decorative art sees red. Sensual materials and precious know how beat the house. The game plays with conventions, time periods, styles and types.
The theme was chosen by Vincent Grégoire (Agence NellyRodi) as he wanted to pick a theme that related more closely to our living environments. The outline for HOUSE OF GAMES soon became obvious. It reflects a number of signals we’ve picked up in the fashion, contemporary art, luxury and design industries, and even in gastronomy. This HOUSE OF GAMES marks the return of a renewed baroque, dandy style, which leaves ample room for fantasy, eccentricity and appeal. More generally speaking, we are noticing an increasing interest in board games, as well as private clubs, which counterbalance the lonely life we lead behind screens and help us restructure our lives around rules we can easily apply.
