What began as a project for a dining hall and informal lounge in a prestigious London location quickly expanded in scope.
A Sense of Lightness and Openness
Set within Les Halles, once a food market made famous by Émile Zola and now a shopping mall facing major reconstruction, L’Exception is a concept boutique gathering together the work of the finest French fashion designers in the heart of Paris. As a flagship store, its own design and décor needed to reflect this high-end, creative offering.
The idea at the core of L’Exception’s physical store was a continuation and expansion of the brand’s digital experience. A contemporary, creative space; a living place where people can discover – and rediscover – exclusive fashion pieces, and gather for special events, shows and exhibitions. The choice of 300m² of MESH R-H 200 enabled the project team to create a bright, fresh and open environment. The modern-look tiles provide a sense of lightness and openness, with excellent air circulation and quality, as well as soft, natural light diffusion – the perfect space in which to showcase the best that the Parisian fashion scene can offer.
