MATTER and SHAPE is a new design salon in the heart of Paris, the first of its kind,
unveiled during Paris Fashion Week in the Jardin des Tuileries in the spring of 2024.
MATTER and SHAPE invites exhibitors, great and small, to present exceptional projects
and products in an elevated setting,
celebrating the culture of global design today.
‘The time and place of a corner is no convenience if it has not been filled, none at all, and if it is filled then there is a resemblance, there is some resemblance…‘
Geography & Plays by Gertrude Stein (1922)
Powered by the international salon experts WSN, MATTER and SHAPE debuts with an inbuilt audience of boutique owners, buyers, and retail consultants from department stores and multi-brand boutiques around the world who visit the neighbouring salon PREMIERE CLASSE across the same 4-day period.
Our relationships with design collectors, architects, interior designers, decorators, journalists and tastemakers from Paris and beyond will ensure high profile attendees from the worlds of design, fashion, art, architecture and luxury.
Thanks to its previous history as a virtual design platform, MATTER and SHAPE has an inbuilt online community and an integrated network of design professionals ready to experience the physical expression of the platform for for the first time.
