Designer: ATELIERS JEAN NOUVEL|
First opening in the heart of Paris, in Saint-Germain-des-Prés. An area of 100 sqm on two levels, right on the corner of the legendary boulevard and rue de Buci, here is where Jean Nouvel Design offers graphic designs combining geometric lines and artistic motifs.
From the street, the eye is drawn to a specific pattern created and inspired by Impressionist paintings.
On the ground floor, the pattern runs along a large backlit wall measuring 13 meters, extending behind the stairs where it featured on the ceiling of the first-floor. Where a corresponding lightbox, hangs from the ceiling, creating bursts of intense colour.
The natural oak flooring punctuates a more complex space; monolithic volumes of wood, custom-made furniture are merged into the geometry of the floor and serve as storage and display units.
Inside, clothing rods include a lighting device and a second directional and steerable light to illuminate walls and ceilings.
