Materials Village lands at Maison & Objet
Parc des Expositions de Paris Nord Villepinte
HALL 8 A98-B97
September 08-12 2017

Material ConneXion Italia, the leading international network of research and consultation on innovative and sustainable materials, presents at Maison & Objet fair the first Paris edition of Materials Village, a hub of events and initiatives dedicated to promoting materials, new technologies and sustainability.

After becoming a known landmark of Milan Design Week and the London Design Festival, Materials Village will now arrive in Paris at Maison Objet to present a project addressed to the Parisian architects and dedicated to the interior world. The hub of Material ConneXion Italia will be in the Hall 8, the pavilion dedicated to the inspiration and design solutions for architects and interior designers. In this context, therefore, the materials will take centre stage for visitors looking for answers tailored to their design requirements.

Within this Paris edition will also be presented the installation, curated by Studio Marco Piva, "L'Atelier Italien", which will give an Italian interpretation of companies who specialize in enhancing the technical, decorative and functional features of their materials. Marco Piva architect says: "research on the matter of architectural composition and interior is for me an almost manic activity, whether it is natural materials - marbles, stones - than artificial materials - glasses, ceramics, metals - up to the new composite materials and synthesis. In L’Atelier Italien - the strength of the project stems from the creative dialogue that has been established between my Studio and the companies: as in an atelier, the synergy between architect and company, creative outreach and maniacal tailoring, unique possibilities arise. The master is all Italian, the result is ready to face the World".
More, an important set up by Abet Laminati will take place at Materials Village in a booth designed by Paola Navone, dedicated to Polaris, the surface, warm and soft to the touch, anti-imprint and durable to scratches and heat.

The success of the Materials Village format consists in having a proper relationship between space dedicated to innovation / research and space available for materials manufacturers to present their products: a village structured into "houses" each dedicated to a project related to the world of materials and production processes. Additionally, Material ConneXion Italia will provide a significant presence of their materials library, with a selection of the most new and innovative materials.
