Monnaie de Paris is hosting the 7th edition of the AD Intérieurs exhibition, which this year is dedicated to collections.
The major names in interior architecture and design are coming to the Monnaie de Paris which, since 2008, has presented in its salons exhibitions dedicated to contemporary creation and the artists of today. High quality décor, objects and furniture, made by the best artisans will take their place in the row of 18th century salons of Monnaie de Paris and will echo the work of the art workshops of Parisian manufacturing and their artisans, who produce exceptional objects out of precious metals.
Launched in 2010 during the 10th anniversary of the magazine, the AD Intérieurs event celebrates the work of interior architects.
Since then, each year, in September, around ten talents selected by the editors each produce a living space (living room, kitchen, bedroom, etc.) illustrating their savoir-faire as much as their style. Surrounding themselves with the best craftsmen (painters, upholsterers, fresco painters, etc.), they celebrate quality decoration. A real showcase of trades, this unique exhibition allows the general public to “truly” discover spaces that are usually reserved for the pages of the magazine. The ambition of this unprecedented device is to capture the spirit of the moment and propose prospective visions of the house. In a short time, the AD Intérieurs exhibition has become one of the great cultural rendezvous of the return from summer holidays in Paris.
Strong on the back of the success of previous editions, the magazine AD continues the adventure this year in a new location, Monnaie de Paris, based around a new theme.
The exhibition revolves around the collection: Whether it is about building relationships between works of art, creating a set of objects around a theme or assembling a family of documents, a collection always tells of a passion. There are also stories, those of the one who assembled them in the first place; and those of both aesthetic and technical evolutions of an object. The editors of the AD magazine therefore requested from the interior architects present in this new edition to organise their décor around groups of objects that are close to their hearts. Rather than a traditional cabinet of curiosities, they are asked to arrange bedrooms, living rooms, kitchens or offices, with the idea of living among their intimate treasures.
The 2016 edition was made possible thanks to the support of Plendi by Vinci-Construction, Bec, Axa-Art, Philipsand Piasa.
Each year the editors of the magazine AD invites around ten talents to participate in the AD Intérieurs exhibition. Some are interior architects, other designers, and others are set designers. Through this wide diversity of profiles as much as styles, the magazine presents different tendencies that define the era. The talents invited by the magazine AD this year are presented in alphabetical order:
BISMUT & BISMUT (DANIEL AND MICHEL BISMUT)
PATRICK JOUIN AND SANJIT MANKU
