Maison&Objet showcases seven new talents

 

Since 1995, Maison&Objet (SAFI Organization, a subsidiary of Ateliers d’Art de France and RX France) has been animating and bringing together the international community of decoration, design, and art of living. What defines its identity is the ability to provoke productive international connections, to accelerate the visibility of the brands that join its shows or its digital platform, but also a singular instinct to promote the trends that make the heart of the decoration planet beat. With two annual trade shows for professionals and Paris Design Week, Maison&Objet reveals talents, offers opportunities for online and offline exchanges and inspiration, and facilitates the development of companies.

Maison&Objet elevates the Rising Talent Awards France 2023 to showcase the talent of seven new creators and studios deploying the panorama of French design committed to facing the challenges of this century. Placed under the Presidency of the creator Philippe Starck, the jury of this edition is composed of Stéphane Galerneau, President of Ateliers d’Art de France; Isabelle Dubern, Co-Founder of The Invisible Collection; Lauriane Duriez, Head of the Office of Design, Fashion and Crafts and Director of Ateliers de Paris; Alexis Georgacopoulos, Director of the École cantonale d’art de Lausanne (ECAL); Hervé Lemoine, President of the Mobilier national; Constance Rubini, Director of the madd-Bordeaux and Design Curator; and Emmanuel Tibloux, Director of the École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs (EnsAD).

The special jury distinguishes Athime de Crécy (ADC studio); Hugo Drubay; Tim Leclabart; Passage (Arthur Fosse & Samuel Perhirin); SCMP Design Office (Sébastien Cluzel & Morgane Pluchon) ; and Nicolas Verschaeve. In this edition, Ateliers d’Art de France, a professional union for fine crafts, salutes the work of a young craftsman professional to ensure the selection of The Rising Talent Awards a balance in the representation of practices and mediums. Its President, Stéphane Galerneau, thus appointed the ceramist Jeanne Andrieu ‘Rising Talent Craft.’

Appointed by Philippe Starck and Alexis Georgacopoulos, Athime de Crécy touches on the globalization of imagination. Born in France in 1996, the designer devotes himself entirely to the research and development of his pieces. For Maison&Objet, the reveals two prototypes. The first is an extendable table named ‘Here Jack’, allowing, by a simple sliding, to pass from eight to fourteen seats. The second is ‘CEB’, an electric motorbike concept which, even if it may seem far from the theme of this edition of the show, seems very relevant in the approach of a French design of tomorrow.

 

‘It is essential for imagining the design of a future world where everything is in motion, starting with people,’ says Athime about the future directions of his work.

Rising Talent Hugo Drubay was appointed by Isabelle Dubern. Born in 1991, the interior architect, designer and sculptor is inspired by nature and morphogenesis, translating it through the use of techniques that range from traditional craftsmanship to 3D printing. Oriented towards decorative art, drawing inspiration from artists of the 17th and 18th centuries, the artist presents the ‘Spire’ desk and expresses his vision of the future through biomimicry.

 

‘It is imperative to propose solutions that promote the creation of ethical habitats, respecting both nature and people,’ says Hugo.

Tim Leclabart (1988) presents objects designed to be souvenirs of travels, special events or important moments in his life. The first piece, ‘Curved’ coffee table, is the translation of the artist’s affection for the work of Oscar Niemeyer while evoking his stay in Rio de Janeiro. The free form of the set recalls the roof of the famed Brazilian architect’s family home, the Casa das Canoas. The product is characterized by its midnight blue lacquered CNC machined glass, some linking it to the puddle tables of Jean Royère. 

 

‘If there were to be a “French Design Touch”, I think it lies in this mixture of heritage from the past and audacity, which Philippe Starck understood in the 1980s and which still resonates powerfully today,’ expresses Tim.

Artur Fosse (1997) & Samuel Perhirin (1996) of studio Passage are at the crossroads of fashion and design. The designers, appointed by Constance Rubini, win their first award and present their work at Maison&Objet. The duo considers the durability and industrialization of the product, which influenced their approach to textile creation. With French fashion being based on quality, excellence, and the ability to transmit exceptional know- how, Passage observes this same desire to highlight local techniques and to put French craftsmanship and industry back at the center of the practice of the young French design scene. 

 

‘The new French design must combine creativity and responsibility. This involves considering the materials, origin, use, and production method,’ exlaims Samuel Perhirin.

SCMP Design Office, founded by Sébastien Cluzel & Morgane Pluchon, was appointed by Lauriane Duriez. Born in 1988, the designers approach everyday objects with a  balance between hyper functionality, the economy of material, and the beauty of detail. Despite living abroad, they are imbued with the French culture and its dynamism. Their mission is to go for responsible uses of materials to create valuable and unadorned objects, but also timeless designs that can be transmitted from generation to generation.

 

‘A suitable object would be an object that is transmitted from generation to generation, that can be repaired, or that can be resold easily,’ reveals SCMP.

Nicolas Verschaeve, born in 1995, was appointed by Emmanuel Tibloux. For Maison&Objet 2023, the artist unravels transformations. Whether it be places of production, the capture of resources, or spaces of thought, Nicolas envisions his practice as close as possible to where the world is changing. According to him, the strength of the design is to be versatile to adapt its methods to new purposes; it is not a question of thinking about objects in isolation but of considering everything that contributes to their emergence and what goes beyond it, their environmental, social, economic, cultural, or political impacts.

 

‘In 2016, I set up a system in which and through which I can engage in projects that support my convictions: an itinerant design office that still leads me today to live in a territory and to follow the laws of the material, the gestures of those who transform it and the artisanal or industrial processes involved,’ adds Nicolas.

Jeanne Andrieu (1995) was appointed by Stéphane Galerneau and is the winner of the Rising Talent Craft prize. The sculptor and artist found inspiration from her scuba diving endeavors that with it brought sensorial forces, visual richness and fantasy-like landscapes. Shaped into works of art, Jeanne’s objects represents fragments of memories and transfigure a world that she recreates from her observations of fauna and flora as well as from the legends and mysterious creatures of Miyazaki’s films and the literature of Lewis Caroll and Tolkien.

 

‘My clay forms, therefore, try to question what disappears, what remains, what we try to reconstitute or even what can exist elsewhere. My sculptures could thus be likened to fossils of a world frozen between dream and reality,’ concludes Jeanne Andrieu.
