Parisian art gallery Zeuxis

In Paris, An Art Gallery Takes Over a Townhouse — Permanently

Like Maniera in Brussels or Salon 94 in New York, the new Parisian art gallery Zeuxis takes works out of the traditional white cube gallery context to exhibit them in a more intimate space; by allowing visitors to imagine themselves living in real time with the objects on display, it makes art and design a bit more accessible.

A Collection of Glass Objects, Inspired By Water In All Its Forms

Two years ago, the Turkish glass manufacturer Pasabahçe teamed up with a collection of designers and glass artists to create Omnia, a series that channeled Anatolian culture through modern glass objects. Now they are reviving the concept — this time focused around the theme of water and in partnership with the Turkish Marine Environment Protection Association — with 15 designers, primarily Turkish, plus the Paris-based SCMP Design Office, whose collection we're featuring here today.

A Hip New Furniture Brand Launches in Paris

If we could describe the new French furniture brand Youth Éditions in one word, it would probably be vibey. It's got a hip logo, a website punctuated with photos of classical sculptures, an Instagram full of perfectly calibrated inspiration images, and poetically mysterious catalog text that feels like it could have been penned by a copywriter for Millennial-focused car commercials. And yet it all works, in a this-is-not-your-grandmother's-furniture-line sort of way.

A Pastel-Hued Parisian Hotel is Our Newest Design Destination

The headboards should have been a dead giveaway: At the new Hotel Bienvenue in Paris, the asymmetrical, velvet-trimmed, tone-on-tone headboards — mixed with statement-y, wall-hung iron sconces — are the focal point in each room, just as they are in another Parisian boutique hotel we recently featured. Turns out they are owned by the same young hotelier, but designed by two different, equally amazing female talents.

8 Amazing Finds From the Parisian Design Dealers Known as Kolkhoze

This month we discovered the Parisian entity Kolkhoze, whose program we must confess we don't entirely understand — founders Thibaut Van den bergh and Thomas Erber seem to be interfacing not just between designers and clients, but between other galleries and clients, as well, offering both existing editions and custom commissions. Whatever they're doing over there, they're doing it well — we did a deep-dive into their site this week and discovered not only amazing works we'd never seen before, but designers we'd never even heard of.

A French Creative Studio Gives the Silk Scarf a Majorly Cool Upgrade

In the last few years, the silk scarf has seen a major upgrade from studios like Massif Central and A Peace Treaty, but one of our favorites on that short list of cool is Suprême Bon Ton, the French creative studio whose fourth collection is as playful and stunning as past iterations. “Totem” features a variety of blue, teal, and cream-colored organic shapes that appear to be stacked, wedged, and floating around the silk canvases, following the brand's longtime obsession with rocks and geology.

Sunset-Inspired Color Fades Meet Slabs of Marble In This Stunning Paris Exhibition

The Belgian painter Pieter Vermeersch has been known to fill rooms with soft, colorful gradients that define architectural space in beautifully strange ways, bordering on optical illusion. Both those works and his new canvases, on view now at Galerie Perrotin, dovetail with Vermeersch's professional origins in photography in the way they deal with light and perspective — but the new works physically ground all that ethereal color with panels of heavy marble.

A Creative Director Brings His Fashion-World Cred to Candles

We fell in love with Overose, a new Parisian candle and perfume house founded by Matthieu Belhandouz, the moment we saw the photos in this post. Belhandouz studied fashion design at La Cambre and had a brief stint at Stella McCartney, both of which could explain his keen eye for visuals and his acute understanding of the importance of branding.

A Parisian Creative Studio With An Epic Client List (We’re Looking At You, Rihanna)

In some ways, the five-year-old Parisian creative agency Bonsoir Paris has everything a modern-day entrepreneurial venture could want — creatively fulfilling commissioned work from cool, high-profile clients (everyone from COS to Rihanna) as well as the time and space to pursue their own work on the side. The studio has a lab that encourages its workers into "boundaryless exploration," as managing director Ben Sandler puts it.
