Paris, January 2023
The French contemporary design furniture SOLLEN is participating for the first time in the Maison&Objet fair from January 19 to 23 and unveiling the “NUAGE” collection in an unprecedented and poetic scenography created by sculptor and artist Junior Fritz Jacquet.
For this first participation at the Maison & Objet fair, an international reference for professionals in decoration and design, SOLLEN showcases its unique know-how through an unprecedented staging of the “NUAGE” collection complemented by new seating for the occasion (Hall 6 stand J41). Carrying values that are meaningful through the new theme “Take Care”, this new edition of the salon is in perfect resonance with the brand’s commitments: taking care of oneself, taking care of the planet, taking care of others and genuine know-how.
“This first participation in Maison&Objet is an important event for us that allows us to introduce the nobility of our materials, the quality of our design and our production to international professionals. It is the know-how of our designers and craftmen that is revealed for the enjoyment of those who appreciate a French art of living. As a young high-end furniture brand, we are proud to be the spokesperson for a return to 100% French and premium manufacturing,” explains Aurélien Hivonnet, co-founder and President of SOLLEN.
An elegant and poetic scenography by Junior Fritz Jacquet:
Located in Hall 6 TODAY, the SOLLEN stand (J41) is designed as an immersive and poetic bubble built around the “NUAGE” collection. The seating dances in the air, as if levitating between earth and sky, in a canopy of paper clouds. It is the Parisian sculptor and artist Junior Fritz Jacquet who has specially created for the occasion, out of love for the art of know-how carried by the brand, this exceptional scenography full of delicacy and poetry. Inspired by nature, each paper element is folded, crumpled and shaped by hand from a single sheet of paper to give it a unique and organic appearance. The lines of the whole are singular and airy. Designed as an invitation to replenishment, this scenography evokes emotions that touch the poetic imagination and inspire daily life.
The “NUAGE” collection, a combination of aesthetics and comfort, expands:
What could be more enveloping and voluptuous than a cloud? Light and airy, the “NUAGE” seating, designed by Didier and Arthur Garrigos, has an ergonomics designed for comfort. Their multiple tufting gives them this surprising shape with a generous and elegant appearance. The natural wood base brings a warm touch.
“In 2023, the NUAGE family is expanding and welcoming a new bench, a daybed and a sofa, allowing us to offer a complete range for the layout of cozy and welcoming relaxation areas to hotel and decoration professionals as well as to individuals. This collection is designed as a real invitation to relaxation and well-being. A strong collection with an impactful design that leaves no one indifferent…” emphasizes Jean-Vincent Vallette, co-founder and artistic director of SOLLEN.
