Each year the MAISON&OBJET Observatory offers a deep reflection on inspirational themes for the upcoming months. We decided to pick some recent stories published on ArchiPanic that anticipated the 2015/2016 design trend: MAKE.

At the fair, the MAISON&OBJET Observatory will share its reflections with an exhibition and publication divided in three parts. ‘NATURE MADE’, ‘HUMAN MADE’ and ‘TECHNO MADE’ are curated by François Bernard of Croisements, Elizabeth Leriche and Vincent Grégoire from NellyRodi, respectively.


NATURE MADE by François Bernard– Life scientists, artists and designers summon the spirit of Mother Nature and dabble in her laws with rather sorcerer-like rituals. Letting chance, experiments and mutations made by these bio-magicians catalyse wondrous things. Thus are born fascinating creations that herald a new generation of objects.

RELATED STORIES – ArchiPanic has always had a Nature driven approach… From the mineral orchestra of vibrating quartz chrystals using forgotten physics laws to the alive and colour-changing micro-algae textile for fashion and design, from unexpected underground crops in London abandoned metro stops to the sustainable (and smart) fishing net to reduce the deadly volume of ocean floating plastic waste and to encourage a more sustinable fishing industry…

HUMAN MADE by Elizabeth Leriche– The hand, the tool of a new luxury, touches and transforms. From the alphabet of materials to the grammar of technique, the savoir-faire of neo-craftspeople gives shape sensitive and rare objects. These works demonstrate radical singularity beyond their function.

TECHNO-MADE by Vincent Grégoire – Is tomorrow’s designer hiding behind an engineer’s white coat? By designing benevolent machines connected to a digital environment, the new algorithms of contemporary comfort invent an enhanced rapport with the world. And foretell of brand new life experiments that strengthen our well-being and autonomy.

Whether it is made by Nature, by humans or techno-Made, design has become more and more focused on the act of creating responsibly, skillfully and integrating objects with digital knowledge. (Enrico Zilli – ArchiPanic Editor in Chief)
