If you want to get your early 2018 fix for all things Interior trends, design and inspiration then annual leading home and decor fair Maison&Objet Paris can’t be missed. It kicks off again from the 19th to the 23rd of January 2018 with Lee Penson selected to speak in the L’Espace Conférences about his view on life, design, his creative process and just about everything in between. Under the theme of ‘Showroom’ the talks are set to explore the new consumer behaviour of ‘exhibitionism’ in the home or elsewhere and the empowerment digital technology has given the normal consumer when they buy products to exhibit to others.


Lee has been in demand to talk about his unique design process following the hugely successful hospitality launch of JO&JOE in collaboration with AccorHotels in 2016 and 2017. The JO&JOE model has single-handedly revolutionised overnight stays for millennials and others with a similar mindset in just one year. The first JO&JOE Open House in Hossegor, France, opened in May 2017 and sold 4,578 Mojitos in August 2017 alone.


Catch Lee on Monday 22nd 2pm – 2:45pm (local time) talking about everything from life travelling on the road to on-hand-hotel experience and branding, virtual hotels and the hospitality experience he predicts for the next 10 years.
