Reflective surfaces and bright lights illuminate the space to create a more lively, almost arcade-like, setting. The stockroom at the rear of the shop, is separated by a plant wall to symbolize the role of a shaman in the rainforest.

For the occasion of the Palais Galliera’s reopening exhibition devoted to Tunisian-born, Paris-based Azzedine Alaïa, the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris will have the couturier’s work on show in an emblematic room, the Salle Henri Matisse, accompanied by work of this Neo-impressionist painter from the permanent collection.
While the first exhibits carefully sourced furniture pieces and homewares from the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s in a spacious warehouse, the latter occupies a separate building, showcasing apparel items and accessories from its very own contemporary fashion archives, in addition to pieces from merging designers and select design objects.

For instance, we all know that wood can provide a certain acoustic ambience, but by using softly worked rough wood, assigned in a harmoniously vertical pattern, you’re able to create a wonderful sense of calmness and serenity.
