PARIS: Maison et Objet - Art - Design - Food - Restaurants - Fashion - People... and more

Paris - Design: Promemoria cocktail.  It has become a standing appointment to attend, on the Saturday of Maison et Objet weekend, the Promemoria cocktail party in their Paris store on the Rue de Bellechasse on the trendy Left Bank.  The Italian design company’s Ceo and Creative Director Romeo Sozzi and his son Davide hosted the event.

Promemoria – a detail. A detail of the sofa called Augusto. The full essential shape is softened by soft fabric upholstering.   The arms are made entirely in bronze and give a very modern look to the piece.  The soft and low back cushions give complete comfort. 
Note: the innovative mix of fabrics with the "cold" metal: velvet, linen and chenille.

Designer, Chrystal Ohoh works in the David Collins Studio in London.

Promemoria.   Poufs Coccolone and Coccolino. The colors are lively but never aggressive because Romeo Sozzi is a specialist in colors; he loves them, studies them and notates them in his inseparable notebook as he travels the world.  Two colors and two materials, fabric and leather which go well together also under different light reflection.
