The Art of the Craftsman Journeys to Maison et Objet

This September, Design PH begins another chapter in its ever unfolding story and this time it’s Destination City of Lights. For the first time Design PH brings The Art of the Craftsman to Maison et Objet, 06 – 10 September 2013 at the Paris Nord Villepinte.

Design PH is a new movement on the rise that gives face to The Art of the Craftsman. The brand brings together a select group of designers and manufacturers that underwent product development and marketing coaching with design icons Budji Layug and Kenneth Cobonpue. Design PH will showcase exquisitely crafted furniture and furnishings that gives a sense of the country’s craft culture, mixing it with contemporary and vibrant treatments, creating pieces that capture the merging of tradition and modern sensibilities.

The participation in Maison et Objet is another step towards introducing the Design PH movement to the global market, a continuing effort to take the brand to international heights that started with Design PH’s debut at Euroluce 2013, injecting that Philippine pizazz into the world of design and modern living. To highlight the Philippines as a country that is diverse in craftsmanship and well-versed in creativity, what better place is there to go than one of the biggest trade fairs for home and interiors?

For Maison et Objet, Design PH will be bringing creations from 12 designers and companies including Betis Crafts, Industria Home, Ito Kish, Luisa Home by Luisa Robinson, MASAECO, Mayumi by CSM Philippines, Peter and Paul, Inc., Schema by Kalikasan Crafts, Tadeco Home, Triboa Bay Living, Vito Selma, and Kenneth Cobonpue’s Hive.
