Peter Marino is the head designer behind the renovation of the flagship store of the prestigious French House, Louis Vuitton. Located on Bond Street, the amazing result of this brand new store took 14 months long of renovation and, as you can see, the landscape is absolutely incredible and joyous. Today, Paris Design Agenda unveils Louis Vuitton’s brand new store and concept!
Meet the reborn flagship store of Louis Vuitton in the heart of London, right on the famous Bond Street. This mesmerizing project stands as a major wow factor just by walking through the street, which means that before you enter, you’re able to see its magnificence. Of course, this project is the work of none other than the prestigious top designer, Peter Marino.
In order to achieve this authentic and eccentric concept at London’s Louis Vuitton, it was a 14-month process, to reveal an incredible colourful retail destination. This French House presents amazing pieces within womenswear, menswear, accessories, and a selection of bespoke items that are exclusive to the store. The main goal of the top American architect Peter Marino was definitely to deliver to the fashion label’s store, the opportunity to display bright fixtures and furnishings that evoke “happiness with no feeling of intimidation”.
The interior of the store is now composed of many expansive, double-height rooms which are each clad in sand-coloured stone tiles. Each one has been dressed with a selection of artworks, an attempt by Marino to bring the theatrics of the store’s window displays inside. Hanging from the ceiling you can see the swing chairs by the Campana Brothers for Objects Nomades by Louis Vuitton.
A double-helix set of stairs crafted from oak wood connects customers to two of the store’s four floors. A totem pole by Matt Gagnon Studio that’s composed of illuminated disks extends up through a central void, while a cartoonish orange spiral sculpture by New York-based artist Josh Sperling has been mounted on the stairwell wall.
At this level, a secondary stairwell – which Scottish artist Jim Lambie has almost entirely covered in multi-colored strips of tape – leads up to the second floor. It accommodates three personal-shopping suites. This absolutely incredible project was the result of Peter Marino‘s creativity and expertise in art and design, and we can’t wait to see what he does next!
