There are some fairs and events which are very important to feel the pulse of the design world. I think Maison & Objet is one of them. It is not only an industrial fair mainly for sourcing furniture and objects, it is a creative and artistic meeting point for professionals who are seeking for inspiration for their brands and/or designs.
Even though, I could not visit the fair this year, thanks to cyber world and friends, I have gathered some photos from Maison & Objet Paris 2012 and Design Sites which I found interesting. As far as I see, there is a boundless freedom in terms of using materials, textures, scales and shapes. To design a space is rather a game full of surprises and a transformation and not a result. After all, isn’ t it the challenge of creating?
