The front of the Burma boutique in Rue de la Paix is decked out in black and glass. The exterior and interior spaces attract and interact via a façade that takes its inspiration from the portrait gallery.

The jewellery in the shop window is exhibited in hanging elliptical display cases that almost seem to float in the air; the back of the cases is reminiscent of a hand-held mirror. This display provides a bold and unusual introduction to the store.

The interior is designed like a large-scale jewellery case, as the diffuse light cast by an enormous chain-mail chandelier shimmers over the surfaces. The agency designed virtually all the tables with moving mirrors and other furniture. Everything is made to measure, with the greatest attention paid to ensuring that this new attire fits the boutique like a glove.

The atmosphere is muffled, the seats are comfortable and the interior styling assured. This all combines to form a refined interplay of straight lines and ellipses that creates a fascinating and magnetic environment.

Atelier du Pont

Founded in 1997 by Anne-Cécile Comar, Philippe Croisier and Stéphane Pertusier, Atelier du Pont is an agency that oscillates between public and private projects, architecture and urban planning, exterior and interior work. Over the last years the agency have been making its mark in Paris with projects, in quick succession, for the Loevenbruck gallery on Rue Jacques Callot in the 6th arrondissement, Jean-Louis Nomicos’ Les Tablettes restaurant on Avenue Bugeaud in the 16th, Stella Cadente’s new store on Boulevard Beaumarchais in the 11th and restaurant Très Honoré on Place du Marché Saint-Honoré in the 1st.
Atelier du Pont is a multipolar agency that reinvents itself with each new commission and encounter, developing an individual response to each specific context. Although architecture – and in particular producing public housing and facilities – is an essential part of the agency’s work, interiors are a breath of fresh air that gives free rein to their imagination, allows to experiment with extravagant materials and to create places that are both outside time and of their time
