Artiste Connect is a funding platform for talented artists to support them on their struggle to finance production of their projects.

Their aim is to connect the artist with their fans in a non-traditional manner, raising funds for producing the artist’s project. At the same time, it encourages the more sophisticated fan base to become potential investors, translating their passion for the arts into something that can yield profit.

Artiste Connect is not just about project productions. It’s about bridging the gap between the artist and the fan, as well as the artist and the businessman. The goal is to connect and support both the artist and the fan so the art lives on.

At Maison & Objet, one of Paris’ most important home shows that took place earlier this month, Kenneth Cobonpue unveiled some interesting new pieces, including an alluring seat cocooned in woven fabric (Rapunzel), a sleek lounge chair with a seemingly seductive tail (Mermaid) and a queen-like throne with majestic butterfly wings (Papillon). After seeing his bamboo car‘s wide acceptance in Milan’s Salone del Mobile last April, it’s quite nice to see his name reappear in yet another world show of design flair, slowly but surely, establishing itself as a constant among the best.
