Bottega Veneta redesigns its Paris flagship as a glowing glass and wood box

The vibe inside Bottega Veneta’s flagship Paris store on Avenue Montaigne is ‘traditional yet futuristic’, following a top-to-toe refresh by new creative director Matthieu Blazy.

The redesigned space adopts a minimal approach to materials, using Italian walnut panelling on walls, ceilings and floors and a jigsaw-like texture for individual columns and furniture. In another sign that they’re back in style – see our post on Kyoto concept store m-i-d 1985 – glass bricks are sandwiched between the store’s levels to allow light to filter through.

Accompanying this are clothes rails wrapped in wood, shelves mounted on industrial fittings and a sitting area of Mario Bellini leather armchairs and sofas on an emerald green carpet.

Keen-eyed shoppers can spot more Italian design cues in the form of Venetian glass rings – used to hang women’s garments.

See more retail design and concept stores across the globe – including Adidas’ new Lagos flagship,  and Veja’s ‘undone’ Madrid  outpost.
