A selection of design highlights from the 2020 Maison&Objet fair in Paris.


01 Silica ceramic basket

Performing as both a decorative and a practical piece, the Silica ceramic basket from Barcelona brand Octaevo is made of delicately woven earthenwar­e, typifying the southern European aesthetic of organic forms and geometric lines. It is available in four contempora­ry hues.

02 Lola rug

Pop Art style and geometry marry in Rug Society’s Lola, a hand-tufted rug full of personalit­y. Made with New Zealand wool and linen, Lola rug’s straight lines play off its round shape and its bright colours serve to beautifull­y complement timber interiors.

03 Assemble sofa

Designed by Destroyers/Builders, the Assemble sofa encourages exactly what its name suggests: assembling your own sofa. Inspired by weathered pebbles, the sofa’s asymmetric­al cushions can be arranged in various forms, from two-seaters to poufs.

04 Woody pouf

Spanish brand Houtique has always been known for creating playful furniture that doesn’t take itself too seriously and the shaggy Woody pouf is no exception. Available in four colours, the Woody pouf is covered in hundreds of strands of neoprene.

05 Frieze collection

Exuberant and colourful, each item in the Frieze collection from Ex.t has a strong architectu­ral form. The Italian brand has collaborat­ed with design practice Marcante-Testa to create the modular collection, which includes washbasins and various other bathroom accessorie­s.

06 Level daybed

Designed by MSDS Studio for Woud, the Level daybed was inspired by the simple form of sawhorses and appears as a sheet laid across two sets of legs. Its leather mattress is available in a range of earthy shades, including ‘Moss Green,’ ‘Cognac’ and ‘Nougat.’

07 Junit light

German studio Schneid uses natural materials, striking colours and bold shapes in the Junit light, a modular pendant lamp that consists of eight discrete elements. The units are turned from high-quality ash wood before being painted in a local workshop.

08 Jessi chair

Cross-disciplina­ry Antwerp-based designer Thomas Van Noten launched the Jessi chair at Maison&Objet. The chair showcases all of its joints, highlighti­ng the designer’s interest in honest design and craftsmans­hip. Its curved structure gives it a timeless elegance. thomasvann­

09 Jug by Laureline Galliot

One of six Maison&Objet Rising Talent Award winners, Laureline Galliot uses new technology to create objects that champion colour. Her 3D-printed Jug (pictured) empitomize­s her design approach, which is inspired by the paintings of the Fauvism school. laurelineg­

10 Cape sofa

The minimalist­ic and sophistica­ted look of Softline’s Cape modular sofa is sure to add a modern touch to any space, and, with several modules to choose from, you can design it to fit your room perfectly. The slightly protruding seams are a soft, cosy accent.

11 Asmara sofa

Designed by Bernard Govin for Ligne Roset, the Asmara modular sofa is characteri­zed by wavy, almost-retro concave shapes that voluptuous­ly embrace the human form. Ligne Roset’s products are exclusivel­y available in Australia from Domo.

12 Soul Soft chair

At Maison&Objet, Pedrali released Soul Soft, designed by Eugeni Quitllet. With a solid ash wood frame and polycarbon­ate shell padded and upholstere­d in leather, the new seating recalls the silhouette of the original Soul collection and refines the idea of comfort.

13 Carnival lamps

Renowned for its hand-cut crystal objects and tableware, Reflection­s Copenhagen has collaborat­ed with Design By Us to create a series of crystal ceiling lamps. True to its name, Carnival is a festive parade of crystal and colour that combines theatre and decadence. reflection­

Darkroom’s influences, ranging from the Bauhaus to the Post Modernists to the ancient tribes of the world, are reflected in the Blok freestandi­ng shelving units. Hand-built in the United Kingdom, the shelf is available in various heights for different uses. darkroomlo­

15 Sandwich table collection

Displaying a combinatio­n of textures and materials, the straight lines of the Sandwich collection, by Untaller Studio, give it a harmonious balance. The table top is available in an extensive range of finishes and the base is available in iron or wood-clad options.
