The M&O fair always chooses an actual topic:META SENSIBLE
For the september 2022 edition, Following two years surrounded by our own four walls, Maison&Objet Paris is inviting visitors to step indisde the new kind of world we’ve all been dreaming of, echoing a deep-rooted need for meaning and emotion.
It’s a fact, the times in which we are living have sparked a yearning for interiors that strike a subtle balance between being anchored in the real world, surrounded by artisan pieces, craftsmanship and tactile materials, and, the other end of the spectrum, an appetite for digital living, free of all physical ties.
Better still, the two worlds are mutually influential, cross-fertilising and even merging to become a brand-new media for creation, communication and distribution. création.
In a didactic, artistic and sensitive way, based on the latest technologies, the exhibition shows what lighting
design can bring to the different categories of spaces through 4 corners and an educational area.
In each of them you are greeted by a virtual host, powered by a solar-panel garment and avatars of Akari-Lisa
Ishii. They provide objectives and advices for each type of space. You can then look, touch and interact with the real staff at all areas.
For more information and help, the reception is located in the center of the stand. It is decorated by a new designers luminaire.

The RETAIL corner is an ingenious double wall system. Its integrated shelves make it possible to visualize how to light, for example in a show window, in a shop etc. Track lighting system comprising different luminaires is installed behind the first wall. We can see the effect of linear, more or less intensive spots in different angles and beam openings with extremely compact latest technology devices. The opening on the side is useful to find out which device produces which effect.
The WORKSPACE corner presents, in tune with the actual needs, mobile work cabins, in single or double version (meeting or co-working). These partitions are easily manipulated and moved. Their manufacturer regularly improves their design. They are decorated with tables and chairs in the same vein.
Above them, the lighting for work is provided by suspensions not only well-designed but also eco-responsable. They contain few materials and are completely discomposable for suitable recycling of each components and easy maintenance. Their visual comfort is significant for working and could be made of acoustic material for a cocooning effect. Even their appearance can be stylized. They are presented in warm white and cold white light, in order to be able to alternate them for Human Centric Lighting, an important complmentary for working days.
This space also enjoys the beautiful light diffused by a floor lamp of original design by our two designers. This light art object has several functions: indirect lighting for the space, aesthetic shadows effects on the floor and also virus sterilizing compartiment thanks to uv-c.râce à l’uv-c.
The HOSPITALITY corner recreates a hotel room with an ecological cardboard bed, equipped with a hygienic and extremely ergonomic mattress (used in the Tokyo Olympics athletes’ village). Colored light variations through the mattress and a projection at the headboard personalize the corner. It is Metamo-room 2.0, a luminous, visual and sound artwork, which recalls the concept of 2017. Two pretty bedside tables complete the room, their particularity is to be created on site, on demand in 3D printing, a good reduction in the carbon footprint.
The ARTY corner, with two composition of sculpture and dyptique paintings, shows tlarge possibilities of lighting techniques to illuminate art works, whether two-dimensional or three-dimensional. We observe the comfort or the difficulty in appreciation of a painting (reflections for example) and the tips to highlight a work. Beautiful alabaster clouds, signed by a renowned Parisian sculptor, are the illustration of these interesting variety, thanks to museographic lighting techniques.
