I'm hoping this is going to be easier to visually navigate, and a bit more interesting. Looking forward to the next chapter.

Whilst in Paris the other week, we went to the Foundation Louis Vuitton designed by Frank Gehry. This is the first Gehry building I’ve ever been in, so I was looking forward to seeing how the interior spaces worked.
Exhibitions included stunning installations by Olafur Eliasson as well as a show exploring Gehry’s design process. These were fantastic, and made up for the rest of the works not being particularly moving for me.
The internal spaces in the building were a bit of a maze, I didn’t feel like it was a very easy building to move through, and the exhibition spaces felt a bit disjointed. Some interesting use of form internally to create stunning skylights.

Finally getting to sorting though all the goodies I picked up a few weeks ago. This year, instead of attending Milan Furniture Fair, we decided that it would be a good idea to head to Maison et Objet in Paris to see how they do it in France.
I honestly can say I’ve never been to a trade show so huge. We only had a day to see everything, but it was so immense I doubt I would have been able to absorb any more. 9 Halls larger than Earl’s Court (threefold!) filled with every permutation of interior decoration and furniture imaginable.
Here are a few of the pieces I thought were really interesting.

|Nendo's Chocolate Texture Lounge, designed to make you feel like you|
are in a wave of chocolate.
Nendo was also "Designer of the Year" at the show.
|Gorgeous grey's from La Chance|
