With Maison et Objet 2015 in Paris starting in a few days, Architonic had a chat with the best and most famous designers of our time. Discussing the upcoming material trends, designers like Philippe Starck, Tom Dixon and Ross Lovegrove among other, each designer shared their view of the material trends not just for 2016 but as well for the next three years.
