Paris Design Week 2020 Highlights Feature | Yellowtrace

 

Hand up if you’re sick of all the digital events these days? Argh! Me three. Alas, our new reality is here to stay and event formats are all doing their best by experimenting and learning how to adapt.

Paris Design Week 2020 took place across the French capital as a combination of real and virtual events between 3rd to 12th September. Maison & Objet fair was presented in an entirely digital format, while the showrooms and galleries around the city took the old-school physical approach, with the addition of compulsory face masks and social distancing measures in place. It feels like this is the way we will be operating across the globe for quite some time.

Without further ado, and in no particular order, below is a quick recap of five things that caught my digitally-fatigued eye this year.

Haute Couture by Servomuto, curated by Margherita Ratti.

Italian Institute of Culture in Paris hosted the launch of Haute Couture installation by Servomuto, curated by Margherita Ratti. Hôtel de Galliffet was transformed into a hall of art with seven oversized floor lamps paying homage to the visionary spirit of Parisian Haute Couture – the synthesis of different cultures and subcultures that acts as a bridge between tradition and innovation.

Humbert & Poyet’s Metamorphosis Collection for Maison Pouenat.

Comprising unique pieces and collectibles such as lights, sofas, armchairs, and tables, Metamorphosis features pure, clean lines and a resolutely contemporary spirit, brought to life with bespoke craftsmanship both the historic iron maker Maison Pouenat and interior architects Humbert & Poyet are renowned for.

Inspired by the Art Deco movement and the designs of the 1950s and 1970s, the collection pays tribute to a number of Humbert & Poyet’s favourite artists including Jean Royère, Paavo Tynell and Josef Hoffmann. These inspirations are apparent in not only the design, but choice of shapes, assorted textures and exquisite attention to detail. The bold choices of materials – lacquered wood, stone, plaster and brass, note a striking contrast from the raw to the ornate.

The collection was unveiled as a scenography that was a tribute to Christo & Jeanne Claude. Statement by statement, wrapped and unwrapped.
