ZOLLANVARI HEADS TO MAISON ET OBJET WITH LARGEST-EVER NUMBER OF NEW DESIGNS
Zollanvari will introduce Flower Meadow from the Gabbehs Flora & Fauna collection at the upcoming Maison et Objet in Paris.
PARIS -- Zollanvari International returns to the September edition of Maison et Objet in a new location, Stand A87 in Hall 7 FOREVER, the largest space they have taken at the show for several years.
Maison et Objet is held at the Parc des Expositions, Paris Nord Villepinte and runs from Sept. 7-11, 2018.
The upcoming edition of the show will see the unveiling of an entirely new concept with the separation of Maison and Objet and with distinct themed areas. The Maison themed sections will be Crafts (Hall 5a), Unique & Eclectic (Halls 5a/6), Today (Hall 6) and Forever (Halls 7 & 8) where the Zollanvari International island stand is located. This division heralds a new era for the fair and promises a much-improved visitor experience.
To celebrate these developments Zollanvari International is presenting the largest number of new designs shown to date at any previous Maison et Objet. New creations on show from the company's extensive Gabbehs collections include: Autumnal Woodland, depicting a woodland bereft of leaves against a field of autumnal and wintery colors and full of mystery; Flower Meadow, bursting with the joys of summer meadows filled with dancing daisies; Garlands & Cypresses, a formal arrangement linking East and West - floral sprays and multi-colored cypress trees in which Suzani meets Victorian embroidery.
Stippled Brushstrokes 2 Gabbehs Abstract & Plainis new from Zollanvari at Maison et Objet.
Also from the Gabbehs collection is Marmo Pettinato, drawing on Venetian marbled paper (carta marmorizzata) with patterns that mimic the natural veining in stone or marble, and Inverted Snakeskin, using tiny irregular elements that are either filled-in or outlined in a seemingly random manner that create a real sense of movement in this design like a slithering snake.
Finally, Brushstrokes is something entirely new to the market: a traditional Zigorat weaving (high or shaggy pile) that was usually made using undyed wool (black/brown and cream) has been reinvented with the addition of color and modernist painterly designs.
Garlands & Cypresses 2 from Gabbehs Flora & Fauna will be on show at Zollanvari's Maison et Objet stand.
On show for the first time in Paris will be the full Anar Collection, launched in January 2018, that takes inspiration from childhood memories of pomegranate (anar) trees, as well as those from numerous travels to Iran over the years - memories that have informed the designers' (NOV24, Vienna) thought process in the creation of this contemporary carpet collection with pomegranate motifs - carpets with soul, history, innovative spirit and design virtuosity.

Other highlights will include expanded design in new colorways from stellar and award-winning collections such as Kyoto (meisen kimono-inspired designs), Chimera (Gabbehs meet rothko'esque minimalism), Tiles (traditional Gabbeh squares and stripes reinterpreted) and Graffiti (archaic Gabbeh motifs with a twist in cool pastel and vibrant colors). In addition to their traditional tribal and city designs, various Designer Isfahan carpets (made of wool and silk) in on-trend colors, the new multi-purpose shaggy Zigorat stools from their Home Décor collection and Sumi-brushstrokes-inspired Baneh kelims will be premiered at the September 2018 edition of Maison et Objet.
Sumi Brushstrokes 2 is new to the Baneh Kelim Flatweaves Minimalist collection by Zollanvari.
