Furniture exhibitions: from creativity to the old traditions
The design solution to the interior of the interior is no longer a surprise to anyone. Nevertheless, the exhibitions of furniture art taking place in the capitals of European countries amaze with their diversity and attract a lot of new ideas.
Design attractions in Paris
In January this year, the Paris Winter Exhibition Maison&Objet 2013 featured more than 3,000 exhibitors from around the world. Creative projects and incredible plans were presented at an extravaganza including the Salon éditeurs textile show, Talents à la Carte, the Scènes d’Intérieur creative workshop, including the sights of Paris and its environs.
A lot of extravagant installations, «live» paintings, incredible room decorations with spherical lamps and chairs — all this was available for review. The real attraction in Paris are the great designers of the day, so the presentation of the Nomade collection by the great Louis Vuitton was a real treat.
80,000 thousand visitors were able to visit the beautiful exhibition despite the snow-covered city and other sights of France . According to the director of Maison&Objet public relations Philip Schoma, the forum was a milestone in the stage of expanding the sales network, finding suppliers and partners for creative products.
Wooden know-how in New York
While the exhibition of contemporary furniture in New York has taken a new turn in improving the production of wooden furniture products. Young, stylish designers were planing chairs directly in front of an amazed public. This is how the International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF) was held at the Javits Center, where the main trend was handmade furniture.
It was a kind of protest to the faceless mass production, filling the exhibition with new and at the same time timeless vibes of true quality of the true art objects and attractions of New York. Understated, quality and beautiful, like all the sights of New York City, furniture from many manufacturers, particularly from Brian Folk-Zimmerman, has been called «forward to the past» by recreating traditional woodworking techniques.
