maison et objetdanish brand menu has released a new line of interior design products at the spring 2017 maison et objet fair in paris. the range, collectively entitled ‘modernism reimagined’, uses the work of the late modernists as a point of reference and is defined by clean and minimalistic forms shaped by simplicity and functionality.

the range is defined by clean and minimalistic forms

 

 

‘modernism reimagined draws inspiration from the late modernists of our time, extracting elements from architecture and design, to create beautifully designed products and clever solutions for modern living’, explains menu. ‘this modernist style has infused every form of design, from architecture and product design to graphics and illustration, as well as being an important influence on the work of many designers.’ 

 

the collection includes also the ‘godot sofa’ by ikos-berlin design, presented alongside its accompanying ‘godot coffee table’ and functions as an expansion of the brand’s current range, originally shown at the september 2016 edition of maison et objet
