As per the previous editions of Maison et Objet, the rising talents selection will also happen on the 2018 edition. As usual, Maison et Objet highlights the works of 6 young talents, all of whom have been sponsored by powerful mentors.
This time, the selected are young Italian talents. Talent scouts all over the world, in addition to everybody with a keen eye for upcoming trends, are rubbing their hands in glee as they impatiently wait for January to come around once more. Every year, the Rising Talents Awards keep their promises and reveal some real gems. This session pays tribute to Italy with the invaluable assistance of the Italian Trade Agency.
The 6 talents made in Italy were carefully selected by the same number of renowned figures, who accepted to become their mentors: Andrea Branzi, Giulio Cappellini, Rosita Missoni, Piero Lissoni, Luca Nichetto and Rossana Orlandi. Simply by following their hearts these mentors have come up with an exciting palette of designers.
