The lighting designers, Akari-Lisa Ishii and Motoko Ishii are invited by the organizer to present the
latest trends in lighting at the Maison & Objet trade fair every September.
This leading Japanese-French mother-daughter lighting designer duo has produced the official
M&O LIGHT TREND exhibition for the past 8 years (2013 to 2021). The 2020 edition was canceled due
to the Covid pandemic.
Each year, the Light Trend exhibition presents cutting-edge technologies related to light, developed
by leading lighting manufacturers from Japan and Europe.
Speaking of objects and light in a wide range of artistic expressions, the duo develops a wide range
of materials married to light and advanced creations that appeal to thought-leading visitors from
around the world.
The strolling type stand represents a journey of light and sensitivity through artistic and educational
installations. Visitors will not only learn about and appreciate the technologies and new control
systems, but will also discover lighting ambiences that will leave a lasting impression.
Thanks to the evolution of technology, lighting plays a more and more important role in interior design, especially in the luxury market. It is therefore not surprising that Maison & Objet is dedicating an official exhibition and developing this close partnership with the designers (large stand at a strategic location, with privileged communication campaign) in order to promote it to visitors from all over the world.
Our exhibition, Light Trend, aims to:
- present the latest news in lighting;
- discover the know-how of world-famous lighting designers;
- suggest integration of light and fixtures in interior design;
- offer exclusive lighting experiences, created just for this occasion;
- share the experiences with opinion-leaders in the decoration field from all over the world.
This official exhibition on today’s lighting design consists of a subtle blend of technology and artistic expression. A double vision that comes from not only the universal technical contribution, but also conceptions from European and Japanese cultures —- the force of our two creators.
The latest trends and international high-end manufacturers of not only lighting fixtures but also materials, furniture, objects, etc. allied to light are presented in our stand.
This year, in which the world was hit by a historic pandemic, is seen as an opportunity for a paradigm shift in many ways. That is why the Light Trend exhibition proposes to reset existing concepts of light for the post-Coronavirus era, in life, the relationship between light and people, the lighting industry and the market.
