The Rising Talents Conference
The six awarded Rising Talents of the September edition of Maison & Objet came together at L’Espace Conférences in Hall 7 to talk about their path through the world of design across the years.
All the way from Lebanon, these six promising designers were gathered at Hall 7 on Saturday, the 8th of September at 11.30AM and we got the amazing chance to hear them. The six designers talked about how, for them, it has been more difficult to create within their reality, simple because Lebanon doesn’t have such a strong design and architectural heritage as Italy, for example. The find themselves having to get their references and inspiration elsewhere, which, in a way, makes them absolutely free to do whatever they want.
As the Rising Talent awarded designers were talking, their intention of having at least a small impact, or change something to be different and create something unique was clear and it resonated with everyone in the audience.
However, not everything comes easy for the young designers, who actually told the audience that one of the struggles they go through in Beirut is having to deal with production expenses, which can come quite pricey in the capital of Lebanon. The designers entrusted us that most of the time, they have to encourage their own production in order to get their designs finished and out in the market.
Nevertheless, in the end, and taking into account the ongoing political issues they have to keep facing in their country, they do believe they are all “sailing in the same direction, that they are designers that work together with a common goal.”
“Inspired by what we see around us, each one of us is different from each other…”
The Best of Hall 6
As for Hall 6, one of the biggest halls at Paris Nord Villepinte, a lot was happening over the weekend. One of the most visited stands at Hall 6 was, of course, Seletti. The Italian design brand naturally keeps on wowing everyone that passes by Hall 6, and it is extremely hard to stay indifferent to their creations, so make sure to pass by their stand and snap a few pictures.
Aside from Seletti, Hall 6 was packed with design professionals, lovers and even PR’s who were looking for the freshest looks and latest designs by some of the biggest and most-renowned brands in the home decor world. Our favorite of the bunch? Essential Home, of course…
