Paris: Maison et Objet - Design et Nature

Seen at Maison et Objet – Design et Nature. Design et Nature’s Anne Orlowska is photographed with a stuffed lion at her amazing stand of stuffed animals at Maison et Objet. “Taxidermy has become very fashionable recently,” she says, “because people are finally coming round to see that it is as much about life and creation as it is about death.  We only use animals that were born in captivity and have died naturally, and I like to think that we are giving the animal a second life.”

The “naturalized” or stuffed animals. A fascinating view of the Design et Nature stand, which was, as you can imagine a showstopper.

A detail.  Owls, birds, parrots are just a few of the animals you can find at Design et Nature for sale or to rent for photographic shoots or displays. Pin It
