Comfort zone

Super-Theme

13 January 2021


Enveloping materials, rounded shapes, softened colors, soft and fluffy aspects… The house flees the anxiety-provoking context and transforms itself into a cocoon 2.0. A bubble-refuge disconnected from the outside tumult in which well-being rhymes with comfort.

Creative people from all horizons are fully inspired by this movement with primary shapes and organic colors to breathe the idea of a comforting future. Leather, quilt, natural wood and transparent materials create a second skin and breathe a new ultra-contemporary, almost futuristic aesthetic. An angle taken by the publisher Cinna who transforms any interior into a cozy nest, followed by various designers who are inspired by the larval state of confinement to seize the « Niksen », art of slow life imported from the Netherlands.

A futuristic habitat rethought through the prism of well-being

This year, the MAISON&OBJET exhibition has chosen (Re)generation as its theme for reflection, a subject that fits perfectly with current times. Interior design is rethought through the prism of well-being and optimization. Between co-living, intelligent appliances and virtuous consumption, the performative installation by designer Ramy Fischler creates the habitat of the future and questions our way of life.

Anticipate future lifestyles through beauty and comfort

« More than ever, the period gives its importance to the convenient and the good. » This motto comes from the editor with the anti-conformist DNA, Cinna, and is particularly appropriate today. The brand brings relevant the fragility and essentiality of the human being through beauty and comfort. From Michel Ducaroy to Noé Duchaufour Lawrance, the work of Cinna’s creators embody this philosophy, they are made in France and respect environmental standards.

The blossoming of comfort through an enveloping design

Feltri armchair by Gaetano Pesce

Comfort bursts out in voluptuous shapes. Enveloping designs inspire new contemporary codes, sometimes very feminine. Annie Hiénimus’ Plumy collection for Cinna is the quintessence of comfort and relaxation. The almost biological aesthetics of Gaetano Pesce’s Feltri armchair is an equally good representation. Seats are being rethought as modern cocoons.

The quilt revival among creators and designers

Cinna - OTTOMAN – Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance
Fendi SS21

Designers of fashion or architecture seem to agree on one thing: the revival of quilting. Democratised by Bottega Veneta for bags and shoes, by Moncler and Fendi for jackets and coats, or Cinna for upholstery on sofas, quilted fabric is unanimously acclaimed by lovers of comfort and padded materials.

Stimulating creativity through architecture

École WeGrow by Bjarke Ingels and WeWork, New York
WeGrow School by Bjarke Ingels and WeWork, New York

The idea that intimate comfort should be integrated into all interiors is reinforced by avant-garde architecture firms such as Bjarke Ingels. This studio designed for WeWork the first primary school that uses architecture to stimulate children’s creativity and learning. With cushions on the floor, suspended wooden chrysalises, primary colours and organic shapes, the spaces evoke an omnipresent nature that reinforces the impression of intimacy and comfort.

“Survivalism » at the heart of creative inspiration

Moncler x Craig Green
Rick Owens FW20

Echoing the notions of « survivalism » and « collapsology » – theories anticipating the collapse of society – which are particularly resonant at the moment, fashion is padlocked around a new aesthetic. Mosquito nets, insulating blankets, beekeeper’s hoods… References to survival accessories bring us closer to a dystopian future with humour and derision.

Unusual experiences and compliance with social distancing

Mediamatic, Amsterdam

Facing the health crisis, designers are redoubling their efforts to imagine safe cocoons and reinvent public spaces. Inflatable bubbles, geodesic domes, and translucent materials are everywhere. From Mediamatic’s unusual culinary experiences to the exhibition on Objects of Common Interest and the Space Caviar installations, alternative solutions are flourishing.

Cosy nests between 3d and reality

The « cosy nest » aesthetic is also found in the renderings of 3D design studios that strive to imagine bridges between digital and reality. In idyllic spaces imagined from scratch, comfort is pushed to its paroxysm. This philosophy is carried by dreamy designers such as Benjamin Guedj, Alexis Christodoulou or the Six N’ Five studio.

The « Niksen » slowlife concept, which celebrates uninhibited idleness and inactivity, can rejoice in the multiplication of brands that embody cozywear, the art of doing nothing, well dressed. Fleece materials, fluffy and fleecey with desaturated shades, warm up loungewear sets as well as the interiors of homes taken over by sofas with incomparable comfort.
