Paris Special Issue

Dear Readers,

Summer ending means only the beginning of a new year for art, design and architecture. We take you to Paris on a full excursion around the city and inside the celebrated fair Maison & Objet. Work and school days might get you sleepy, so we focus on finding you some of the best fabrics for the bedroom by exhibitors seen at the fair. We talk to Italian designer Roberto Sironi about his work curating the exhibition for online platform Maison & Objet and More (MOM)—we also highlight several new products exhibited by MOM. Catch more on Ramy Fischler—M&O’s designer of the year—, a renown interior designer who is also involved in the development of Nu!, a zero -waste corporate catering service based on local and direct produce sourcing. Through the many design districts and architectural jewels of Paris, this issue has much to offer.
