Printemps du Carrousel
Mecca of Parisian luxury, Le Printemps has opened a shop in the splendid gallery of the Carrousel du Louvre.
For the first time in 32 years, Printemps is opening a new temple dedicated to luxury, in a prime international cultural location: the carrousel du Louvre.
Over and above its grandiose location and monumental appearance, all the values inherent in Printemp’s DNA are embodied in this new union : History, Heritage, Creativity and Elegance.
Covering a surface area of 2600 m², Printemps du Louvre brings together the finest luxury and beauty brands, epitomising know-how in leather goods, fine watchmaking, fine jewellery and fragrances.
THE STORE’S ARCHITECTURE The interior of the store reflects the architecture of the Carrousel du Louvre and the museum itself, as the floor and walls are made with the same construction material: burgundy stone. The strong visual experience starts with the white-painted ceiling, with a wavy polished steel surface that reflects the image and movement of visitors in a perspective seen throughout its whole length.
To maintain the unity of the interior architecture, all the shop façades are organised by Printemps, with opening and closing features defined by the architects of the Citterio and Partners agency: Antonio Citterio and Patricia Viel, who have also designed a large part of the shops’ furniture and central presentation areas.
