Maison & Objet is one of the industry’s most notable interior design trade shows. This year’s shows are hosted in Paris, Asia and the Americas. The Paris show, which took place in January, was a grand success; one of the highlights was FontanaArte’s exhibition Lights to Live.
FontanaArte’s “Lights to Live” at Maison & Objet Paris
The Lights to Live exhibition featured some of FontanaArte’s most iconic fixtures, as well as star designs from their 2013 and 2014 collections. Some of the highlights from the exhibit included:
Igloo. This unique, modular lighting fixture(s) is an designer’s dream. A series of special connectors allows the white, igloo-shaped lamps to be connected in a variety of arrangements, up to 200 lights large.
Cheshire. The Cheshire collection was designed by the Italian-Danish duo GamFratesi. The polycarbonate dome, with a smile of light, is reminiscent of Lewis Carroll’s famous cat. Table, floor and suspended versions are available.
Yumi. Minimalists are enthusiastic about Yumi, the barely-there, adjustable and energy efficient floor lamp designed by Shigeru Ban. The Yumi has won several notable design awards, including the Good Design Award and the 2014 iF Design Award.
