For the third edition running, Maison&Objet is accepting applications to Future On Stage, a spotlight on innovative young companies doing interesting and future-defining work in design, decoration, and the art of the living world.

Held in conjunction with Paris Design Week, Maison&Objet is a biannual fair hosting 6,000 brands and designers—not to mention thousands of buyers, journalists, and other visitors—to celebrate the best in design, decoration, and lifestyle.

Future On Stage is one of the fair’s initiatives to unearth exciting young companies and offer them a position on the global stage to share how they’re shaping the future. Each acknowledged startup will receive booth space at the September 2023 show, as well as exposure through Maison&Objet’s digital platform, MOM, and communication channels.

In January, Maison&Objet rewarded Gwilen, Noppi, and SAS Minimum with the opportunity to present at the festival’s Future On Stage. Gwilen creates building materials out of marine waste, while SAS Minimum’s Le Pavé is an endlessly recyclable terrazzo made from used plastics. Noppi rounds out the three companies with its chairs that fold up to create a private, quiet space.

The application for September 2023 is available at maison-objet.com until April 10.
