SEPTEM­BER MAI­SON & OB­JET, PARIS

ELLE Decoration (UK) - - The Trends -

At the bian­nual Mai­son & Ob­jet trade show in Paris-nord, a mix of fringe events comes un­der the um­brella of ‘Paris De­sign Week’. Visit emerg­ing de­sign­ers on one of six themed city walks as part of Now! Le Off, which aims to be a spring­board for young tal­ent. Evening events are a high­light – over the eight days, each of the par­tic­i­pat­ing neigh­bour­hoods will hold a party, dur­ing which its gal­leries, stu­dios and shops – in­clud­ing the con­tem­po­rary cre­ative space Ga­lerie Room ( 2) – will throw open their doors (8–16 Septem­ber; mai­son-ob­jet.com).

Over 2,500 cre­atives will be con­tribut­ing to this ex­trav­a­ganza, with phil­an­thropic ex­per­i­ments and de­bates held at the Peo­ple’s Pav­il­ion, a pop-up con­fer­ence cen­tre built by Eind­hoven in­hab­i­tants us­ing bor­rowed ma­te­ri­als and plas­tic by-prod­ucts. Make a bee­line for Dutch min­i­mal­ist in­te­ri­ors brand Vij5 ( 3), which opens its beau­ti­ful work­shop to the pub­lic ev­ery year. As 2017 is the 100-year an­niver­sary of De Stijl, the avant-garde art move­ment spear­headed by Dutch ab­stract artist Piet Mon­drian, there will be tributes to the style’s black lines and pri­mary colours (21–29 Oc­to­ber; ddw.nl).
