So it is again exhiting if i can manage to be in time..
UNE RENTRÉE DÉCO - 100 % LUDIQUE: Super Strong lamp par Doris Darling. Provenant de Vienne, ses pièces uniques sont fabriquées a la main…. Ces creations design ultra-vitaminées devraient se faire remarquer lors de la prochaine édition du salon Maison et Objets de Paris. À suivre…”
It was very exciting to take part at the Maison et Objet fair in Paris in September 2018. I was going there all by myself, and it was really stressful because i was doing it the first time. And alone. :-) The lamps where brought by carrier, and I was flying in by plane. I had 1 day for the set up of my 10 squaremeter booth in the Unique & eclectic hall number 5. It took me the whole day, with some screw complications, but i could manage to finish finally at 10:30 p.m.
I presented 3 of my Super Strong lamps, 4 of the Super Lollipop Lamps and 1 floor lamp and some images of the photo series. It looked very nice and the visitors seemed happy when looking at my pieces. Also got a lot of compliments, for the lamps of course ;-) Thanks to yll my visitors there, and to my neighbours to whom i could talk when it was boring. Merci!
