In Paris, MATERIALS & LIGHT 2019

For its 5th edition, MATERIALS & LIGHT trade show in Paris will be held in the exceptional setting of the Carreau du Temple on April 24th and 25th, 2019, for two days of show and conferences dedicated to innovative architectural solutions.

Materials & Light is a professional trade show dedicated to innovative products and new materials for architecture, lighting and interior design. Its goal is to highlight the creative solutions and to improve industrialists and prescribers’ exchanges. Organized by the d’a magazine in collaboration with Muuuz, Séquences Bois and Traits Urbains, Materials & Light is the best occasion for more than 2 500 visitors to discover a selection of novelties underlined by a sculptural scenography and an original lighting.

The event is addressed first and foremost to architects, urban planners, landscape architects, engineering offices, designers, interior designers, decorators, lighting-designers, scenographers… But also to project and management teams or to any professional involved in the choice of materials and lighting solutions. Among the exhibitors, visitors will find big industrial groups such as emerging actors in their sector.

For its 5th edition, and its 2nd at the Carreau du Temple, Materials & Light carries on its collaboration with the scenograph Violette Cros who brighted in events such as the Oum Kalsoum exhibitions at the Institut du Monde Arabe, the 70th birthday of SNCF at the Grand Palais, “Oublier Rodin” at the Musée d’Orsay, or even the Musée de la Mine in Saint-Etienne.

For Materials & Light, Violette Cros wanted to take advantage of the Carreau du Temple’s exceptional volumes. StudioMilou Architecture rehabilitated this historical monument in a contemporary way. She imagined 3 formats of steel modules, to remind the structure of the edifice. An inspiring scenography which confirms the original positioning of Materials & Light, between materials showroom and artistic exhibition, which enhances the lighting and street furniture. Signed by LIGEO, the lighting of this 5th edition associates design with technology. An exceptional light concept work serving the place’s architecture and the proposed materials.

A conferences cycle animated by experts and journalists is proposed to visitors for the whole duration of the trade. Festive animations (brunches, private evening, snacking, cocktail…) also give Materials & Light a playful aspect, and the opportunity to exchange in a friendly atmosphere.
