Creative Art Pieces that Tell a Story
Curate your home and workspace with these statement-making finds
by Patti Sunio
Maison & Objet and More (MOM), the French trade fair’s online platform, presents Digital Days, featuring a curation of creative designs by craft workers, material artists, and art manufacturers from across the globe. The online event runs in eight editions, under the themes Unexpected Gift, Trendy Déco, Well at Work, Craft Métiers d'art, Outdoor Living, Sustainable, Premium Design, and So French.
Now on its fourth week, Craft Métiers d'art, zooms in on what makes each artwork exceptional and truly one-of-a-kind. Behind every piece of art is a story, be it the inspiration that led the artist to create a masterpiece, or the years of hard work it took an artisan to hone his craft. It all comes together in the form of an artwork that beckons emotion and awe from its spectators.
