The new home of the Louis Vuitton Foundation, a building dedicated to art, especially contemporary art, opened to the public in late 2014. It is located between the Jardin d’Acclimatation and the Bois de Boulogne in Paris. The project to build it was driven by Bernard Arnault, Chairman of French luxury conglomerate LVMH and it was designed by the Canadian architect Frank Gehry. It’s striking design and strong presence has made it an instant success and it has joined the long series of monumental modern buildings in Paris.
It was completely natural for the Foundation to have chosen USM furniture and storage systems for their offices in the new building. As well as requiring top-quality furniture that would reinforce the luxury Louis Vuitton brand, the offices’ unusual shape, dictated by that of the building, meant the furniture also had to offer optimum adaptability.
USM pure white storage units elegantly fit into the office space without closing it off and individual work areas are furnished in a range of colours: the USM Haller desks are fitted with mobile pedestals in golden yellow, ruby red, gentian blue and pure orange. USM Haller tables were also chosen for the meeting rooms and private offices.
Clarity and a top-quality image were the key requirements for this project to furnish the Foundation’s offices. These requirements were satisfied completely by the light and upmarket aesthetics of USM Haller furniture system. In this supremely transparent building, USM Haller furniture systems set the tone everywhere, be it in the reception area, the meeting rooms or the individual workspaces.
