PARIS DESIGN WEEK is fast becoming the definitive cultural counterpoint that is raising the bar for design weeks across the world. Overlapping the M&O PARIS September show and uniting the French and an increasingly international design community, the PDW city becomes immersed in promenades, cocktails, exhibitions… culminating into the celebration of emerging talents at LE OFF.
But Paris Design Week is also a great opportunity to meet experienced masters of design!
Steiner, a family business founded by Charles Steiner, manufactured its first chairs in the Faubourg Saint Antoine workshop in 1926. Since then the brand has been accompanied by top designers to continually revolutionize the art of seating.During Paris Design Week, Steiner will launch its new visual identity and retrace its flawless history of modernity. A cutting-edge, innovative and avant-garde brand during the time of Charles Steiner, the company has chosen to bring its past back to life during Paris Design Week, targeting a younger audience who enjoys historical – vintage and iconic – designs. For instance, Kwok Hoi Chan’s Zen chair and Michel Mortier’s velvet SF 103, which was a regular staple in offices of high-profile corporate executives all through the 60s.
A similar approach was taken by the Disderot showroom in Passage Saint-Paul. Disderot perpetuate the timeless spirit of French creation from the 50s to the 70s with this made in France collection, respecting the tradition and quality. Gathering wall light, lamps, ceiling lamps and desk lamps. Each edited model is numbered and accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.The Paris Design Week exhibition will honor the brand’s models, including some never shown before, from the postwar years. A time that today’s generations have not experienced, but that still sparks a lot of interest from antique lovers. (Re)discover the works of Abraham & Rol, René-Jean Caillette, Pierre Disderot, Roger Fatus, Michel Mortier, Joseph-André Motte, Pierre Paulin, Alain Richard, Olivier Mourgue and Pierre Guariche, that continue to be produced today with the greatest respect for the originals and the savoir-faire of Ateliers Pierre Disderot.
Those of you who have not yet seen RBC’s Paris showroom in Rue Violet (Paris 15) will find a touching tribute to architect, sculptor, and designer Angelo Mangiarotti. With the help of Italian manufacturer AgapeCasa, RBC offers a chance to rediscover his invaluable marbles and other fine pieces sculpted from solid wood. A controlled approach of matter and materials, presented in an exhibition curated by Camilla Benedini. (Re)discover the Asolo table (1981), the Eros table with its very distinctive conical legs, Inca, cantilever Eccentrico, More with its four legs simply planted into the marble top. A Mies Van Der Rohe with an engineer’s mindset, a creative Prouvé, a technical Brancusi… Each product develops its own magical dynamic.
