Maison & Objet 2024: a world-class successful event

This year’s fair once again proved to be one of the most successful international design events in the world. In terms of numbers, there was a 9% increase in the total number of exhibitors compared to January 2023, with 2,516 brands, of which more than 60% were international. Also the number of visitors was up by 5%: 58% from France, 42% from abroad. In particular, visitors from the United States increased by 8% and those from Asia by 83%, driven by Japan, up by 52%, India, up by 18% and China. By contrast, visitors from Europe dropped by 9%, probably because of the continent’s complex economic situation.

Interior designers (+8%), hospitality professionals (+2%) and retailers (+1%) went to the fair in search of new solutions and inspiration for 2024. Their strong participation underlines the fair’s commitment to offering the best in furniture, design and lifestyle through vibrant and eco-friendly product innovations.

The highlights

Conceived as a dedicated showcase for upscale decor, Maison & Objet’s Hall 7 welcomed visitors with two dramatic and immersive installations. The first, titled “Alchemy”, was designed by Baccarat, the well-known French crystal Maison, while the second, “Outonomy”, was designed by Mathieu Lehanneur, Maison&Objet’s 2024 Designer of the Year.

This edition’s theme, “Tech Eden”, reinterpreted the fair spaces through green and ultra-tech installations while offering strictly sustainable high-tech solutions.

Among the scheduled events, Rising Talent Awards and Future On Stage gave ample space to brands committed to ethical production approaches.

On the other hand, the retail space, besides showcasing new products, hosted a series of workshops and lectures focused on the three main trends: sustainable minimalism, responsible brutalism (reuse and recycling of materials) and organic fluidity.

Lastly, at the “Hospitality Lab”, trend forecasting agency Peclers Paris offered three Trends Forums: awakening, active and regenerative. Each of these embodied one of the facets of a hospitality sector that is constantly evolving: from cafés blending into well-being spaces to luxury spas in hotel rooms offering multi-sensory experiences.

Also the Talks with Martyn Lawrence Bullard, Ramdane Touhami, Martin Brudnizki, Charles de Vilmorin, Andrea Trimarchi (Formafantasma), and Nelly Rodi, just to mention a few names, enjoyed great success.

Maison&Objet will be back from September 5-9, 2024.
