What a pleasant and interesting surprise was it for me to discover that Hermes just debuted their Home section at Milan’s Furniture Fair. Hermès’ creative director Pierre-Alexis Dumas has called architects Shigeru Ban and Jean de Gastines, who also designed Centre Pompidou in Metz to design the Hermès Pavillion. The striking exhibition space made out of cardboard tubes woven with paper aimed at creating a set of
a nomadic modular structure. The Pavillion’s configuration incorporated ceilings with different heights and rooms of different sizes making in such a way some of the spaces to feel more private and some others as if to be shared. The whole setting was also designed to make the viewers see themselves with the Hermès lifestyle.
