Project Title

Maison et Objet 2019

A celebration of British design & Japanese manufacturing

The Sebastian Conran Gifu Collection launched to great acclaim at Maison et Objet in Paris. The 2019 stand was designed by SCA to showcase over 100 products produced by 18 makers spanning across lighting, furniture, ceramics stationery and kitchen tools, all crafted using diverse skills and exceptional craftsmanship of the Gifu region in Japan. The design of the stand reflected the project’s core aesthetic, mixing traditional Japanese products and architecture with contemporary European influences.

Gifu Collection Showcase

A selection of prototypes and materials were shown as part of the trade stand, named the Collection Showcase, which highlighted the manufacturing techniques and quality of raw materials produced in the Prefecture. These prototypes told the story of the collaboration between Sebastian Conran and the 18 different makers showing the design process and detail that went into each product.
