Leather stands out at Paris design exhibitions. Two major fair events are underway in the French capital city: Paris Déco Off (on the agenda on January 16-20) and Maison & Objet (scheduled on January 17-21). Printed and green leather prevail in both exhibitions. We have selected the most interesting works, two of them actually, presented by Bill Amberg Print, together with Moore & Giles, and Atelier Gaston.
Bill Amberg Print, an artisan from London, has been liaising with US Moore & Giles, a luxury retailer, to create their first exclusive collection. They have presented six digital-printed hides, whose tint and size options widely range. They have designed them for commercial and residential applications, which may well optimize their peculiar allure. Bill Amberg’s collection, created for Moore & Giles, takes inspiration from shapes and forms coming from nature and traditional artisan work. Bill Amberg Print usually makes use of the best European hides, printed through some graphic techniques: some of the most famous creative designers in the world have developed them. The final product will be useful not only for its traditional upholstery purposes, but also for manufacturing tailored furniture, alongside a wide range of design items and articles for interior décor.
Printed and green leather prevail
At Maison & Objet, visitors can see the works by Atelier Gaston, which is a French brand specialized in accessories for smartphones. The company makes use, to create them, of leather scraps coming from luxury fashion houses, based in the French capital city. Julie Le Calonnec, together with two partners, founded the brand in April 2019. One of them is Gaëlle, who has been processing leather, in the luxury sector, for twenty years. Atelier Gaston aim to replace plastic, which covers our smartphones, with nobler materials, such as leather.
