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…

For PDW19, the famous fashion designer Margaret Howell is hosting in her confidential boutique an exhibition around one English icon: the Brown Betty teapot.

The re-engineered Brown Betty teapot is the result of a three-year research and development project led by British ceramic designer Ian McIntyre. The exhibition shows the process of designing and developing one of the most manufactured teapots in British history.

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!

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.

TREND: Au poil !

Winter will be hygge (again).

Scandinavian trend that has been booming in deco magazines for more than ten years and finally, slowing a bit... but still "slow life" is not dead. And how can it be better incarnated than in fur? It is actually everywhere: soft, colorful and long, on cushions, blankets and even furniture. No need to think twice this winter, program is simple... a good book, a coffee coiled in your Alpaga blanket, right next to the fireplace! (Hall 7 — Stand G187) (Hall 7 — Stand E165 / E173) (Hall 6 — Stand L26) (Hall 6 — Stand K22 / L21)

If concrete was Le Corbusier's favorite material, it also pleases very much the public, still very appealed by the roughest materials. 

You will thus find multiple Maison & Object pieces made from it but the one not to be missed is LCDA concrete stand. You will be thrilled to touch the wonderful wall panel co-creation with Sebastian Heckner and Rodolphe Parent, filled with surprising sensuality.

Pierre Alexis Delaplace, Kerzon founder (with his brother Etienne) loves his neighborhood. He shared with us his tips but also his tops for PDW19.


J'aime beaucoup

- la collection Mezcalienne de Maison Marcoux dans les vitrines de l'Institut culturel du Mexique qui propose une version ultra moderne et douce des poteries fabriquées en argile noire dans la région de Oaxaca.

- Le Jardin vertical de Antoine Lesur à la bibliothèque de Paris rue pavée . L'idée est belle, la réalisation parfaite et j'aimerais imaginer en installer à tous les coins de rue. 

- J'ai aussi découvert les luminaires de Boutures à Grand Control, dont je trouve les jeux de transparences hyper poétique.

Mes bons plans dans le quartier?

- Le stand (Marché des enfants rouges) qui proposent tous les jours deux super bowls vegan nommés avec beaucoup d'humour et des patisseries parfois un peu folles mais toujours délicieuses.

- La Maison Plisson parce qu'on y trouve tout ce qu'il faut pour bien manger, boire et se régaler dans la bonne humeur.

- Et la boutique Papier Tigre, liftée pendant l'été, pour découvrir leur nouvelle offre de carnets ultra personnalisés, pour rassembler toutes nos bonnes trouvailles.
