Architonic Photo Tours: Maison&Objet Paris and Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair 2014
Maison&Objet Paris January 2014
'April in Paris' goes the the old Broadway song. But for a number of years now, the smart crowd head to the French capital in January for the spring edition of the now firmly established Maison&Objet design fair. With visitor numbers high, and creative and business conversation in full flow, this January's installment of the twice-yearly Paris design trade fair Maison&Objet didn't disappoint. If you didn't manage to be there, now's your chance to make your way through the fairground halls virtually, thanks to our extensive photo tours. Bon voyage!
Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair 2014
Last year's edition of the always highly polished and well-organised Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair, SFF, saw in excess of 35,000 visitors pass through its doors. This year's equally well-attended event presented across its various halls over 500 confident exhibitors – ranging from the best Scandi brands, through leading manufacturers internationally, to a raft of eager young designers, all keen to engage with their fair-going public and all sharing a deep-seated passion for good design.
The relatively compact size of the Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair means that chance (and scheduled, of course) encounters with other visitors are common, allowing for meaningful creative and business conversations to develop over the course of the fair. The young design talent on show, meanwhile, had a less experimental, more production-oriented feel to it this time round.
Didn't manage to make it to Swedish capital week before last? Fear not. Architonic brings you the best from the fair in the form of our detailed photo tours.
For the very first time Architonic also hosted an Architonic Disco at the renowned Berns Gallery, where an astonishing crowd made up of the who is who of the Nordic and international design scenes celebrated on the first night of SFF. Varsågod!
