In January 2014, the Maison & Objet show in Paris will receive a glorious and unique stand that will be aimed to form partnerships and informal conversations between designers, architects, decorators, interior designers and media of the design area. This project will be called Covet Lounge.
We had an exclusive opportunity to speak with responsible for this mega project and asked how idea of Covet Lounge arose?
The idea of Covet Lounge arose from passion for design shared by 4 distinct luxury brands with different design concepts, but with a common goal: the desire to change the world of interior design through emotional experiences.
Thinking outside the box and creating a new way of working with interior designers and architects, a team of senior designers and product specialists were a goal. We will give them a chance to work on the concept and product together, closing a gap that the market has, and all this in an informal context of relationship. The Covet Lounge is a mediator between design professionals and luxury brands of the area, curate design brands, which attempt to create bonds.
What are the brands that are part of this concept?
