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. Lire la suite…

Observing Earth and its territories through a radically new architectural, sociological
and environmental lens, the architecture and urban design office TVK works upon projects varying greatly in scope and ambition. Currently, the office is in charge of thinking the public spaces of the future Grand Paris Express stations, of designing the Ilot fertile d’Éole, the largest group of solid stone buildings built in Paris since Haussman (19th district of Paris), and of the creation of the Media Village for the Paris Summer 2024 Olympic and Paralympic games. The founders, Pierre Alain Trévelo and Antoine Viger- Kohler, authors of the reconfiguration of the Place de la République in Paris and of the transformation of the E40 motorway into public space in Brussels, or even of the brand new housing and cultural centre of Batignolles in the 17th district of Paris, consistently enhance and add value where others cannot see it, or cannot see it yet.

JL - en detail_15

Parisian precursor of the emerging “listening bar” culture, Jean Louis la Nuit offers a place where vinyl lovers can come together to listen to their favourite albums with high fidelity analogue sound. An out of the ordinary place for an extraordinary character; a platform dedicated to young creators of fashion, art and design. Shaped as a 70’s cave and open to all forms of experimentation, its visitors are submerged into a retro futuristic vibe, unlike any other in Paris. Lire la suite…

French architects studio TVK & Tolila+Gilliland just unveiled a new cultural block in Paris (Clichy-Batignolles area) : Seven-theater cinema with cultural space, community center with concert space and dance studios, 342 residential units, a shared garden, bespoke artwork, and retail space.  Three residential buildings offering exceptional views of the great Parisian landscape anchor three corners of a mixed-use block. At the heart of the project is a cultural center for the new ZAC Clichy- Batignolles district in Paris’ 17th arrondissement: a seven-theatre cinema and a community center. These public volumes, anchored to the ground, give way to the public realm and are crowned with hanging gardens. Three residential blocks emerge from this base, climbing up to 50 meters. This simple distribution of masses effectively resolves the inscription of a complex program on a high-density site. Lire la suite…

The Italian designer is unveiling these three models as a preview: Mur végétal, Pot suspendu and Tableau vegetal (French for: Botanical wall, Hanging pot and Plant picture). A natural continuation for Mauro Canfori who is passionate about the relationship between plants and architecture and to whom we already owe the collection Teracrea launched in the early 2000s with Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec, Konstantin Gcric, the Campana brothers, etc..

LELIEVRE RIVIERA

Since 2013, Ateliers Zelij has built a bridge between traditional Moroccan zellige tile-work and contemporary architecture. The geometric rigor of patterns combined with the soft irregularity of surfaces and shades of color have made of these antique glazed and chiseled clay tiles a must-have in decoration. The zellige tile-work installation, which Hermes chose to put on display at their art de vivre stand in Milan, is but one example. Artist and designer, Samir Mazer born in Tetouan Morocco, reinvents new patterns and new formats on a daily basis with Delphine Laporte from within their Toulouse based studio. A complementary partnership, both at work and at home, has made this a duo key figure of the zellige revival. Lire la suite…
