With every new edition, Maison Et Objet elects a Designer of the Year. The winner of the 2019 edition is Sebastian Herkner. Ready to find out everything that was said in one of the most expected conferences?
Sebastian Herkner is a 37-year-old designer from Germany. ‘’My aim is to find a way to balance craftsmanship with new technologies’’. For Sebastian, nothing is more important than changing the way we consume goods, we should always invest in quality materials and craftspeople, as it becomes harder and harder to create waste.
“I wish in the next 10 years the crafts still matters. The materials are also in the right way. We just really need to change our consume patters. I don’t have a plan for the next 10. I think I have some great companies I’d like to work with. Some new challenges’’.
- MAISON ET OBJET TALKS: “PORTUGAL – ELDORADO ARCHI, DESIGN AND CRAFT”.
This conference counted with the knowledge of interior architects from Oitoemponto, Artur Miranda and Jacques Bec as well as Joana Astolfi designer from Astolfi Studio and Amândio Pereira, founder of Covet Foundation.
Founder & CEO of Covet Group, an international creative company that holds and manages 11 luxury design brands, he started the journey in the design world in 2005 when he founded the renowned Boca do Lobo.
“Craftsmanship has been passed on from generation to generation. People are getting more curious and passionate about it.”
Oitoemponto* emerged in 1993 from the perfect alchemy between two strikingly different but terribly complementary personalities. It is almost the ideal success story.
“The marble is a part of our country, you can see it in all houses, and monuments. The marble idea started already in the 12th Century – keeping on with the DNA of the country”
Joana Astolfi is an artist, architect, and designer who draws visual inspiration from a broad universe of found objects.
“Most of my projects have a story, are concepts with a narrative, a full experience.”
From animal prints to pastel colors, these are the design trends to keep on your radar in 2019:
- DECORATIVE PLANTS
Plants are one of the trends that you can go a little overboard within 2019. Unique natural elements bring a sweet touch to your home interior decor.
- MID-CENTURY MODERN STYLE
The truth is that mid-century modern design has never really gone out of fashion, and it’s no wonder since it’s easy to live with and it’s a look that can be combined carefully with other styles.
- PASTEL COLORS – COLOR OF THE YEAR
As we all know, Pantone’s 2019 Color of the Year is living coral, a beautiful orange with a pink glow that’s already making an impact in interior decoration, but instead of using coral, you can use a warmer or softer coral.
- CULTURAL ECLECTIC
Cultural eclectic is basically a style of decoration which intends to enjoy the freedom of collective different ideas, variety, culture, crafts etc. under one roof.
