PIERRE HERME

In this shop, what we have is more gastronomic pastry than simple pastry. Pierre Hermé is an avant-garde pastry confectioner and a magician with flavors. He revolutionizes the most established traditions and eliminates the excessive or useless decors which clutter cake shops. He uses salt as sugar to bring out other shades of flavors and he constantly reassesses his own work by exploring new territories or by revisiting his own recipes.

Galerie YVES GASTOU

Yves Gastou is a specialist for furniture and sculpture of the 1940s, 1950s, 1960s, 1970s. He hunts for, rediscovers all the forgotten designers of those years. He was the one who since 1985 has organized the first exhibitions in France of Ron Arad, Ettore Sottsass or Shiro Kuramata, that he then confronted with the works by older major designers of the 1940s and 1950s as André Arbus, Jacques Adnet, Paul Evans, Gabriella Crespi, Joe Colombo and many others. It is thanks to gallery owners like him that we now enjoy the return of Art Deco in the forefront.

JIM THOMPSON

Since 1951, the eponymous brand has been the ultimate reference in silk for home furnishing. It offers fabrics designed, woven and dyed in the purest South-East Asian tradition as well as collaborations with the most notorious designers. This ancestral fabric seemingly never ages and always keeps up with design and trends.

HÔTEL MONTANA

 

We love the deliciously subversive, chic and slightly snobbish spirit of Hotel Montana. The revamping is the work of two stars, architect Elisabeth Lemercier and decorator Vincent Darré.

 

 

 

 

It offers six suites -one per floor- six chic and extravagant bubbles which pay homage to surrealism with a color palette borrowed from Le Corbusier and a mix of contemporary and vintage furniture.

Galerie JACQUES LACOSTE


Jean Royère’s works of art made Jacques Lacoste want to open a gallery specialized in design of the 1940s – 1950s and for ten years he has been the one that people consult for an advice or a valuation on the works of art of this great designer. He is also the one who shows this work whenever he gets the opportunity on the other side of the Atlantic. But is does not prevent him from showing the works of Serge Mouille, Alexandre Noll, Georges Jouve or Pierre Szekely.

CAHIERS D’ART

Created in 1926 by Christian Zervos, the Cahiers d’Art review belongs to the legend of SaintGermain-des-Prés. Picasso, Giacometti, Matisse, Léger, Beckett and Miro took part in it before it became slightly neglected. ‘Les Cahiers’ were purchased by the Swede Staffan Ahrenberg and are now headed by Samuel Keller and Hans-Ulrich Obrist and back to their former place and lustre.

CARTIER

A hundred and sixty years after opening their first shop in Paris, Cartier has become the most famous jeweler and watchmaker in the world. Their collections nevertheless kept their audacious family spirit of the early days when the three Cartier brothers Louis, Pierre and Jacques, the founder’s great grandsons, would scour the earth – from India to Russia and the Persian Gulf- for the most beautiful gemstones, which contributed to create a revolutionary style in jewelry and watchmaking, mixing classicism and avant-garde.
