Past meets present for first-time Maison & Objet exhibitor House of Finn Juhl, which painstakingly crafts and manufactures its furnishings just as the late Danish architect and designer did. On view will be some of Juhl’s iconic pieces, including the sculptural 1949 Chieftain Chair and curvaceous 1940 Pelican Chair, in exclusive materials. The house will also unveil a revived design from the brand’s vast archive. Maison & Objet, Hall 7, Stand C115-D116.

Mathieu Lehanneur, Maison & Objet 2024 Designer of the Year, presents “Outonomy”

The year 2024 is shaping up to be a landmark year for AD100 designer Mathieu Lehanneur. Not only is the French designer turning 50, but he was also selected to design the Olympic torch for the Paris Summer Olympics. This January, he’s set to make a splash with his Outonomy installation at Maison & Objet, which named him the 2024 Designer of the Year. Relying on principles of nature and technology—his favored juxtaposition—the project will explore the notion of isolated homes, such as igloos or yurts. In the midst of fair week excitement, Lehanneur’s installation will surely transport you to a contemplative space, away from the hustle and bustle. Maison & Objet, Hall 7.

Paris-based architectural designer Marion Stora has always designed bespoke pieces for her clients, but this January, she will publicly launch her first furniture collection at Maison & Objet. Ensuring the pieces would be of the utmost quality, Stora collaborated with artisanal furniture makers and upholsterers from around France—Maisons Henri, Argile, Dedar, Jouffre and FJ Hakimian, to name a few—to realize her sculptural vision. Hand-woven fabrics and leathers invite distinctive textures and tones—particularly in dove blue and mulberry—to the furniture series, while craftsman techniques and joinery elevate the frames.
