Interview of Cyril Aouizérate, an alchemist + founder + CEO of the MOB Hotel.

The MOB HOTEL is a concrete utopia that is totally porous to its environment, anchored in places that are constantly changing and bringers of hope. Design and Art are fully embedded within the hotel and a key part of the Mob movement.

Interview of Christophe Hoffmann, founder of 25 Hours Hotel, located Gare du Nord.

- Who are you?

- A modern nomad, passionate storyteller and hotel romantic longing for the analogue


- How would you define your way of working?

- I love to work in an environment of flexibility, trust and freedom. I like to interact with other people and strongly believe that best things happen when you are amongst inspiring people. For creating interesting and sustainable concepts it is important for me to create a network of like-minded people.


- What does Made in France/ French design mean to you?

- When it comes to French design I always connect in my mind with the beautiful antique markets such as in Saint Quen and L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue; this for me represents the tradition and art de vivre of the French.


- Why did you decide to open a 25 hours in Paris North

- It is the perfect 25hours neighborhood because it is melting pot, offers inspiration through people all over the world and sets itself apart from the typical exclusive Parisian arrondissements.


- How would you describe yourself in 1 word ?

- Curious


- you're German, what is your country's most emblematic design object ? 

- Porsche 911


-If you would be a (design or other) object what would you be?

- A motobecane racing bike…

Grandi Livia Agence 14 Septembre
› Grandi Livia



I was born in a family of design fanatics and I grew up in an amazing house just outside Florence. And I have always loved magazines. Paris 1983, my first trip alone. I fell in love with the city and still am. I really, really like (randomly): its everchanging sky, pain aux raisins, neighborhood flower shops, the fact that you can actually walk to everywhere (provided you have the time), passages, museums, early 20th century buildings.

At first, I didn't even know the northern arrondissements. Then, as I got a bit more experienced, I started to explore them. And I found many reasons to love them: for their down-to-earth atmosphere, for the unpretentious and delicious cafés, for the people, for the unexpected finds in places were tourist rarely - if ever - go. How daring! And how Paris.

My favourite addresses :

* Eglise Saint-Jean-de-Montmartre, the first church in reinforced concrete, still Art Nouveau but already longing for Rationalism. And I love the ceramic round tiles in the façade.

* Place Saint-Georges. I love to sit at the café sipping something and pretending I own the fabulous hôtel Thiers, that sits just on the opposite side (27, place Saint-Georges - the one at number 28, owned by the legendary Marquise de Païva, is a tad too brash for me).

* Musée Gustave Moreau for the spectacular staircase linking the two floors of the atelier. For the drawers full of drawings. And of course "L'apparition", a painting that never fails to impress.

* La Recyclerie, restaurant-plus-activities center in a former train station, for the atmosphere, the food and the light. And because it's the perfect pit stop to recharge before or after going to the Marché aux Puces.

* Le Centquatre, where I saw a Keith Haring exhibit that's still my mind, for the crew of kids practicing urban dance moves.

* Parc des Buttes-Chaumont for the totally dramatic Temple de la Sybille, perfect pavilion for the afternoon tea of a lifetime (one day or another I'll bring thermos and cups). And for Rosa Bonheur, such a funny place with its bal musette/Oktoberfest vibe.

* The Butte-Bergeyre, micro-neighborhood perched up on a small hill hidden behind a curtain of tall buildings. You take the stairs at 17 rue Manin and it's like entering, step by step, a different time. Once on top you will find cobbled streets, tiny gardens, and one of the few Parisian wineyards. Plus a spectacular view on the Sacré-Coeur.

* 72 rue de Belleville: birthplace of Edith Piaf. Enough said.

* Entrepots Macdonald: the longest (617 metres!) building in Paris, an array of very eclectic contemporary architectures built on a masterplan coordinated by OMA. It's still Paris, but it feels like another world.

2018 - During the launch party of our installation - Reviving Lord Cecil - the DJ played a song by UK Subs, a punk band that used to play in the pub, one of the guests told us that they were managing the band back at the time! A slide of local history revived, the feeling of having engaged with locals through design felt like fulfilment - pure happiness.

"I love Paris because it really is the most beautiful city in the world! It is completely timeless - the beauty of its architecture, its fashion, its style, it never fades. And there are always more secrets to discover, from charming cobbled streets, to hidden courtyards and historic tales... For me it's no surprise that Paris continues to enchant us all."

One of my favorite restaurants in Concorde! We go there for the authentic cuisine of Indochina and its unique flavors and also for the warm welcome of Barbara the boss and her team!

An institution of vintage fashion and couture in Paris. A unique place in the idyllic gardens of the Royal Palace.

A typical Parisian bistro as we like them!

Boutique offering everyday objects from Asia and Orient redesigned by designers. The restaurant adjacent to the shop, the "Yoko, is excellent.

A hotel bar with a warm and cozy atmosphere, close to the Tuileries Garden. The ideal place to meet the "Tout Paris" during Paris Fashion Week.

After doing the market, I love spending there to have a coffee with my daughter and buy some pastries for the weekend.

Cushion .... the latest fashion is CUSHION.

While browsing the aisles of Maison&Objet, you will surely notice the plethoric Lighting offer, there is something for everyone.  But the STAR of this 9th edition of M&0 is CUSHION! It is everywhere.

It comes in all shape, size, style and price. To be trendy, you have to accumulate them and make your sofa disappear under a beautiful mix and match.  You can change your interior in a second and create each season a new atmosphere. But don't forget if it is made of hemp, it's even better!

We spotted for you: (Hall 6 — Stand K22 / L21) (Hall 5A — Stand M24 / N23) (Hall 5A — Stand Q89) (Hall 5A — Stand O82) (Hall 5A — Stand O107) (Hall 6 — Stand C16 / D15) (Hall 5A — Stand N24 / O23)

Laëtitia Fortin's passion is leather.

She cuts and folds it in minute detail to create both sensitive and poetic pieces.

Her approach is quite close to architecture : creations are made of clear and pure lines, following an apparent simplicity.

At Maison & Objet, she presents a remarkable piece : a “cape” (almost an armour) sublime combination of china pieces and leather, meticulously assembled. Simply stunning.

1.Vous êtes plutôt M&0 ou plutôt OFF ?

Je suis plutôt les deux !

J’aime aller à la rencontre des professionnels sur Maison & objets ; y voir toutes les nouveautés internationales notamment, rencontrer des designers et des éditeurs que je n’ai pas vu depuis longtemps. Je retrouve mes copains ;)

Et sur Paris Design Week ; je me balade au grès des vernissages … Je découvre ce que le grand public peut voir et comme je parle au grand public dans l’émission Télématin, je suis particulièrement attentive à leurs envies !

Par ailleurs, je suis de très près l’actualité des jeunes designers et faire un tour sur le OFF est un incontournable.

2. Votre actualité de cette année ? 

Mon actualité est l’actualité du design, de l’architecture et des métiers d’art pour Télématin …

J’ai des projets de documentaires ; des portraits de grands noms du design français. Et enfin, j’ai un projet avec France Télévision sur les olympiades des métiers qui présentent le travail des jeunes apprentis.

3. Vos coups de coeur durant cette semaine PDW ?

Ohhh là là là … Difficile de choisir ! C’est tellement dense. Et puis… Je ne veux me fâcher avec personne !

4. Combien d'édition de PDW à votre actif ? c'est la 9eme (!)

Je suis cet événement depuis le début. J’’en ai parlé à Télématin dés sa création. Je trouve très intéressant de montrer au grand public des évènements auxquels ils peuvent participer eux aussi

5. On te voit où et à quelle heure à la TV, cette saison ? 

On me voit le matin … Tous les mercredis, deux samedis par mois et en fonction de l’actualité du moment dans l’émission Télématin, (Première matinale de France) sur France 2 !
