Maison&Objet is headed to the United States for its first event ever on american soil, after Paris and Asia this seems to be a much expected step in their world domination plans, bringing the best in design into the new continent. But what is really different about this edition that sets it apart from all others? Mainly the global business opportunities it generates in a very local based market, bringing not only the rest of the world into new ground but joining North and South America in a meeting that is long due.
The event will take place in Florida at the Miami Beach Convention Center on May 12-15, 2015.

Something to look forward to are the awards, it’s the best time to find out who’s hot and where trends will shift to, we already know the Designer of the Year but we are eager to know who will be the Rising American Talent of 2015. Amongst the runner ups we have Lukas Peet, Leo Capote, Cristian Mohaded, Casey Lurie,Max Gunawan, David Pompa and Ramón Laserna, only two of them are from the US, so that goes to show the range they are looking for.
Not just by being the first edition, but 2015 Maison & Objet Americas has everything to be a successful event, and the location – Miami Beach, it’s just wonderful!
