india mahdavi comes to paris design week
Parisian architect and designer India Mahdavi debuts new textiles and furniture pieces at this year’s Paris Design Week. The designer presents three new color-ways for the Jardin Intérieur collection of textural rugs, created in collaboration with La Manufacture Cogolin. What’s more, she unveils her new collection of LOOP armchairs, built together with Gebrüder Thonet Vienna.
An international reference in the world of interior architecture, design and scenography, India Mahdavi creates interiors for individuals, hotels and restaurants, and is equally well known for her eponymous furniture collection. She has won numerous awards and is regularly listed among the top 100 international architecture and design talents.

India Mahdavi (see here) and La Manufacture Cogolin (see here) continues with three new color-ways for her Jardin Intérieur collection, after last expanding the collection with five additional color variations in 2018. The architect and interior designer showcases three new pastel shades — beige, soft green and lilac — which soften her signature. The newly unveiled additions are on display in the Paris showroom of La Manufacture Cogolin for the Paris Design Week from September 7th — 17th, 2022.

the loop armchair
India Mahdavi’s LOOP armchair takes shape with the craftsmanship embodied in furnishings that express the ‘ancestral know-how’ of its manufacturer Gebrüder Thonet Vienna (see here). In this exercise the designer has remained faithful to the movement, supporting the stroke, without lifting the pencil. The collection is centered around the circle, which defines the boundary in space and wraps around itself before chasing its path, leaving two ‘loops’ in its wake.
The sinuous ‘curls’ that flank the seats push the limits of their material — India Mahdavi calls for the curved beech wood to double its efforts, exaggerating its beauty and roundness. the LOOP chair — also available as a banquette — will also enrich the spaces of her study and Parisian showroom to showcase her creative flair during Paris Design Week.
