Maison Corbeil is a Quebec company specialized in high end furniture and decoration items. In 2012, the company appealed to Paprika to design its annual catalogues.
Summertime – Summer 2012
Inspired by summer music, we selected vinyl sleeves with titles or images evoking the summer; the sun, the heat, the beaches. We used the body positions of the characters featured on those sleeves in order to establish a direct connection between the sleeves and Maison Corbeil’s products. This judicious page layout allowed for the humoristic creation of a coherent whole which conveys the light and casual atmosphere so typical of summers.
Meubler le temps – Fall 2012
Entitled Meubler le temps (Furnish time), this catalogue was made using a series of vintage photographs. We selected those pictures in accordance with the featured characters’ body positions. We then deep-etched those characters to place them in Maison Corbeil settings. The contrast between those men and women from another era, on one hand, and, on the other hand, contemporary furniture makes for an original catalogue.
