There is a Futurist sub-trend going on at the Maison & Objet trade fair in Paris, France. It is manifesting itself in both materials and forms.
One of the items that fits with this trend stopped me in my tracks today. It comes from Cinna, which part of Ligne Roset. This is a portable light called Paranoid that is made of nylon mesh. I loved the tactile texture and the way it diffuses light—not to mention how much flexibility the mesh provides in designing a piece. I thought others might like it as much as I do, so I have included a picture of it here.
I’ll have much more to say about the Futurist trend in our Trend Album™ Maison & Objet January 2007. We expect to release this CD-ROM trend report by the middle of February. To pre-order, just drop Janice an email or call her at 800.531.6614.
