22 Eki Classics from yesterday and tomorrow now together
Every year, along with the Maison et Objet exhibition, the Paris Design Week invites design lovers to a series of discoveries and events in the heart of the capital. The 2018 edition will go through the new Monolithe showroom in Saint Germain des Prés.
Monolithe is settling in Saint Germain des Prés
Monolithe will receive amateurs and professionals in its new premises, 4 rue Madame. A beautiful address in a typically Parisian street of the district with a unique character. There, you will find the Monolithe édition collection in an inspiring presentation : the Klec bookcase, the L88 lamp, the Eora chair, the Hansel and Gretel tables, the Charles & Elie bookends.
To « dialogue » with the contemporary edition, some rare furniture from the 1950s and 1960s, selected by Emmanuelle Vidal, antique dealer and decorator, and the soul of Monolithe vintage, complement the decor.
Among the most beautiful pieces, a desk by Pierre Guariche, a set with lounge chairs and a coffee table or a dining table by Gérard Guermonprez. The opportunity to verify once more that refined shapes and materials, created and designed as close as possible to the item’s funtion, complement each other perfectly, regardless of their age.
New mirrors with round or oval shapes, manufactured in materials already used in the collection – marble, brushed brass, stained oak – the creations signed by Pierre Dubourg are not only used as image reflectors but they also are part of the decor like a painting. The tinted glass and Silestone that adorn the mirrors’ surface are forming a kaleidoscope reflecting textured light effects, sometimes smooth, sometimes velvety. Designed as abstract art works, the mirrors can be hanged in any position, following the decorator’s instructions.
