Centre Pompidou boutique
When visiting the Pompidou Centre, a quick stop at the intriguing ground-floor glass box of objets d’art and design treasures is a must. The boutique recently underwent a major revamp, with the architect Marie Deroudilhe entirely reworking the space in the same materials as the main building: concrete and steel. This modern cabinet of curiosities gives top billing to everyday design and is teeming with ideas to help visitors find a souvenir or an original gift to bring back from the capital. Here you’ll discover essential creations by established and grass-root names on the French scene as well as general design trends of the moment.
From Bowls to Lithographs
There’s something for every budget, from Philippe Starck’s “Juicy Salif” citrus squeezer and Patrick Martinez’s celebrated Flooded House bowl, to limited-edition artist lithographs, posters or even a Vitra chair. You’ll also find a great selection of art books, stationery, clothes and accessories, all linked to the Pompidou’s current programming. Plus there’s a fantastic children’s space.
Ontrend designers like the Bouroullec Brothers, Margaux Keller and Constance Guisset all display their latest works here, creating window displays that look like miniature exhibitions. One day, you might find a sculpture of multicolour stools, the next, a tableau set around lamps by Tom Dixon.
