At Maisons du Monde, we believe that it is possible to create sustainable products without sacrificing style! We create collections that include sustainability criteria, from sourcing eco-friendly materials to giving our furniture or decorative items a second life.
A look back at the first contest

To share our vision and educate the talents of tomorrow, in December 2016 Maisons du Monde launched the first Sustainable Creation Awards, inviting students at French design schools to reflect on the eco-design of furniture or decorative items. The Awards are organized in partnership with the eco-organization Eco-Mobilier, the Association FSC France, the sustainability consulting firm EVEA, and the participation of ADEME and the Foundation for Nature and Mankind.

From December to February, we received 55 submissions from 12 different schools. After a pre-selection by the Maisons du Monde designers, stylists and product managers, a panel of eco-design experts from Eco-Mobilier, EVEA and FSC, supported by ADEME, met to assess the efforts to reduce environmental impacts.

And the winners are…

The first Sustainable Creation Awards ceremony was held on 12 October in Paris, in the presence of the winners and the partners. 4 prizes were awarded:

  • Fleur Moreau from ENSAD won the “Decoration” prize for her “Fabrik” storage bin.
