On Monday it finally was time, the Cocoon Living team travelled to Maison&Object in Paris. The purpose of this trip was to view inspiration, ideas and the viewing newest trends in interior and design. Also our search for specific furniture for our projects has also been successful.
We visited several of or fixed suppliers on the fair. One tendency we were confirmed in was that the seventies Rule! All goes back to the seventies., fashion, hair, interior, colour schemes, flower arrangements, it feels like its been long since a trend was so clearly visible and mind changing as now. Curvy shapes and bouclé fabrics. Graphic patterns and bright colours! Also a huge confirmation of the direction with the style of the Cocoon collectables web shop, and the design of several current projects.
Just in, a complete three-part set of the BZ28/29 by Gerd Lange for ‘t Spectrum, 1970. This typical Space Age design by ‘t Spectrum in the 1970s is in good vintage condition. One rarely finds these pieces in such condition with the original moulded plastic armrests. This set has its original white velvet upholstery, to keep is as original as possible. The curved and bulky shapes specify the space age era.
