Enfants Riches Déprimés Flagship by Didier Faustino

ERD SHOP retouched Copyright David Boureau 8192

Behind its classic Parisian facade, the Enfants Riches Déprimés flagship store by Didier Faustino blurs the codes to offer a cold space, without affect. Inspired by the bunker and the bank vault, it is spread over two levels, all in lines, full and void, mixing marble and steel.

The stainless steel panels are articulated from a shaft plunging into the facade to meet in the reflections of a faceted cylinder. Sculpted impacts in these vertical walls create alcoves of grey marble. At the bottom, the staircase wraps around a mineral monolith to a horizontal space pierced by a hopper where the sky appears below. Here the metallic reflections extend the softness of the artificial green of the floor and the quilted anthracite suede of the ceiling.

« The ERD boutique is an enclosed grey zone, a geometrical boudoir and a surgical limbo. The space has been shaped as a stage built of metal and stone to enclose the experience of desire. » Didier Faustino
