“There is a shop, is an experience. It is not a decoration and is not an artwork, but it is a form of expression. It will have it own people. My greatest joy is whether to take an imaginary journey into their heads”.
A kind of trip? Thus, the multidisciplinary artist and designer Arne Quinze talks about his last job-creation, the interiors of the mythical concept store just opened the Eclaireur in Paris. An indispensable reference point for shopping in Paris since the ’90s, when the store was among the first brands to launch later became famous as Dries van Noten, Dubreuil, Girbaud, Hussein Chalayan, Martin Margiela, Prada.
To create a dream world, centered not so much on emotion as experience goods offered by visiting the location, Quinze has recreated a sort of fantasy world, almost uterine, covering the local waste assembled of wooden planks mixed with other materials waste.
