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…

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.

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.

As part of Paris Design Week we were lucky enough to interview Ian McIntyre.

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.
