NEW FLAGSHIP STORE “2 RUE CAMBON”
Parisian elegance, rugged architecture
Rue Cambon. Just a few steps from the Jardin des Tuileries and the Place Vendome, Zadig & Voltaire open their new 850m2 flagship store "2 Rue Cambon” dedicated to art and fashion.
A perfect harmony between Parisian chic and rugged modernism. Bernard Dubois created this architecture to span across the centuries and challenge the principles of design with style. Its alternating greys and whites and striking perspectives recall the famous arcades of the Rue de Rivoli. The building's framework reinforces the natural elegance of the stone floors, made with Italian Ceppo di Gré.
The rough walls made of sprayed concrete contrast with the soft ivory-coloured carpet and classical cornices, turning it into a showcase for young and free Parisian fashion.
This is more than a new space, this is a resolutely new vision, a lifestyle where contemporary works and collections come to life alongside each other on three levels. Women’s and children's departments are on the first floor, trainers, shoes and accessories on the ground floor. The men's department as well as the art gallery are in the basement. Starting from a single design adorned with exotic plants, Cecilia Bönström varies the setting using made-to-measure modular furniture in distinguished walnut and crude steel. To choose a look with relaxation, it offers leather bench seats and oversize mirrors.
The art gallery exhibits works from the house collections: paintings by Richard Serra, Julian Schnabel and Adam McEwen, sculptures by Franz West and by Daniel Firman, and more.
Zadig invites you into his Paris.
Cecilia - Artistic Director of Zadig & Voltaire
“At the corner of Rues Cambon and Rivoli, at the historic centre of the fashion districts. The House of Zadig & Voltaire exudes Paris. A legacy and source of inspiration for its collections."
Bernard Dubois – Architect
“In a monumentally French and coherent project, I wished to contrast the principles of different eras and places. Like an exotic meeting between Auguste Perret, Denys Lasdun and Douanier Rousseau."
