When Interior Design Advocates a Return to the Essential

When Interior Design Advocates a Return to the Essential

2018 will be a year of change. That of a return to the essential. Natural materials, craftsmanship and local production. Like a need to swim against the tide of the oppressive consumption machine, to isolate yourself and create your dream. Far from all worries. “When ethical is synonymous with aesthetic“, that’s a principle that we find pleasing. Victoria Magniant is committed to this principle and has made it her personal mission. Convinced that the systems of production and distribution of the past are no longer fit for purpose with regard to the ecological imperatives, the speed of circulation of data, ideas or even products, this young designer has decided to revive traditional solutions that have been forgotten and renew them through technology. An initiative from which her first furniture collection – Daiku – was derived, presented on the fringe of the Anti-Fashion Festival by the trend forecaster Li Edelkoort. And since, even in fashion, minds are undergoing a revolution, why not take a look at those who dare to trigger radical change? That’s what it’s all about for Alexandre Reignier. A life in a wooden cabin that he designed and built himself. The focus of his attention: a better thought-out way of life where one consumes local products favouring the savoir-faire of other like-minded people. Whether it’s a question of interior design – hand-woven baskets, limited-edition ceramics and arts and crafts pieces upon which the Empreintes shop has built its success – sustainable natural materials in the home of Dutch woman Tessa Hop – or attitudes – holding on to simplicity, to the uncluttered, when the world around us is moving too fast – the return to the essential has never been so topical.
