Objet de Curiosité Studio Is Going To Surprise At Maison et Objet 2020 – What started as a simple passion for Grange-Jaricot and his wife Lilau, has grown into a fully-fledged business. Their incredible work is going to be the stand out of one of the most famous design events in the world! Find out more about their inspirations and ideas here!
‘Objet de Curiosité’, supplies customers with astonishing, rare and poetic finds, the kind only nature itself can supply. Prehistoric wonders, rare stones, astonishing insects and many others are a big part of this firm. Their unique stand at Maison et Objet usually presents some of the most inspiring design ideas with their unique marvelous pieces.
As the Maison et Objet‘s enter their unique stand, “they clearly feel like children again – you can see it in their eyes” explained Lilau with a smile. It’s the same story every single time: visitors’ eyes are initially caught by the multi-hued array of stones and the elegantly styled decor, part Tim Burton, part Jules Verne.
Pierre-Emmanuel’s passion for entomology, the study of insects, began when he was a child, then naturally grew into a love of geology whilst fossil hunting in the Ardèche mountains. Multicolored jasper sketches out Picasso-esque forms, labradorite emits a dazzling sheen, Indonesian Garut stone, sliced like an agate, can reveal landscapes worthy of a Japanese print. Every single item comes with its own QR code, unlocking access to its unique background story. Pierre-Emmanuel’s family were the founders of Lyons-based furniture manufacturer, Grange, which meant he grew up living and breathing design ideas.
As for his wife Lilau, she is famous for designing wallpaper with nature-inspired patterns, furniture, and sophisticated accessories. She’s the creative mind responsible for framing, arranging and staging the couple’s curiosities, often looking to the XIXth century for inspiration. She loves nothing more than working her magic on flea market finds, painting Henri II or 1930s furnishings black and then switching up a few small details to give them a decidedly modern vibe, their neo-Renaissance or Art Deco style a nod to the curiosity cabinets of days gone by. Twice a year for the past twenty years, Maison et Objet 2020 has become their ultimate design showroom.
