AD Interieur 2014 is a exhibition that takes place at the Musee des Arts Decoratifs in Paris. In it´s fifth edition, AD Intérieurs show house partnered with the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris on a series of rooms that combine decorative history and contemporary style. 13 designers were invited being each of one of them responsible to create a space that should showcase lesser known masterpieces from the museum’s collection. These spaces were preselected to represent a range of styles from the Renaissance to the 20th century.
The Chinese Pavilion designed by Francois-Joseph Graf for Fendi to display the museum’s collection of Chinese enamels from the Yuan, Ming and Qing dynasties.
From the living room to the bathroom sixteen designers have dreamed up interiors conceived for living, highlightinglittle-known masterpieces from the museum collection.
Among the decorators selected we can count Bismut & Bismut, Cabinet Alberto Pinto, Caroline Sarkozy & Laurent Bourgois, Chahan Minassian, Charles Zana, François Joseph Graf, Gilles & Boissier, Isabelle Stanislas, Luis Laplace, Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance, Pierre Yovanovitch, Tristan Auer and Vincent Darré.
The guidelines were simple: The selected object should be the pièce maîtresse (centerpiece) of each interior, and the space must be fit for contemporary use.
The resulting “live-in decors” offer a fresh take on the traditional model of a roped-off museum. The 13 rooms are on view now until November 23.
