Notcot features a great photo walkthrough of the “Maison et Objet: Simple” showcase in Paris, featuring innovative design touching upon three related themes: Farmlife, Les Métropuritains and Slow Tech. We especially liked the “Slow Tech” concept and exhibition, conceived of by François Bernard. In their words:

[Slow Tech:] Less speed for better living. François Bernard suggests taking a break in a dematerialized world. Soft, fluid technologies revisit naturalness and a simplified life philosophy. Style is also inspired by the industrial aesthetics of last century's designer-engineers. Heavy, peaceful forms cultivate a solid, reassuring elegance. The house is taking on depth and weight, worlds away from the ready-to-discard.”
