This year's Paris Design Week explores desirable lifestyles

Dezeen promotion: Parisian galleries, showrooms and boutiques will open their doors for Paris Design Week from 9-18 September.

The 10-day event will host exhibitions, workshops and discussions surrounding a range of design disciplines, including fashion, homeware and interiors.

This year the event has adopted the same theme as the biannual Parisian interior design show Maison & Objet – “desirable development”.

The show will aim to explore objects that represent designers’ visions of what makes a desirable lifestyle in light of the changes the coronavirus pandemic has brought.

The Frugal exhibition showcases designs from over 40 designers including this bamboo lamp by Samy Rio

Although Maison & Objet was a digital event in 2020, it will return physically this year from 9-13 September, and like Paris Design Week which was an in-person event in 2020, it will exhibit previously unseen collections from across the globe.

Ross Gardam, Breeze Collection

Over a 12-month design process, Ross Gardam developed the ‘Breeze’ table as a flatpack marble structure with only three fasteners. The top is Emperador marble sourced from a quarry located in North Queensland, and the base is black marble.

Johnny Nargoodah and Trent Jansen, Ngumu Janka Warnti Collection

A collaboration between Nyikina man and saddler Johnny Nargoodah and furniture/object designer Trent Jansen sees salvaged scrap metal bent into structural forms and covered with beaten leather. The pair created the designs remotely, developing a collaborative ‘sketch exchange’ system to ferry prototype designs between Johnny’s home in Fitzroy Crossing and Trent’s on the south-east coast of NSW.
