The French brand Sessùn opened its new concept store in Marseille, south of France.The space was created with the desire to offer a friendly place for living, meeting and shopping. « Move borders, open the field and provoke meetings » that was what Emma François, Sessùn founder wanted while she was thinking about the project.
The architect duo Marion Bernard renovated this old soap factory to match Sessùn sunny and natural aesthetic.
When you enter through the large ancient wooden doors, you can first find a living space. A restaurant/cafe that serve local and seasonal food. The color palette is neutral with terra-cotta floors and stone walls. While the furniture is simple, a selection of decorative objects and tableware bring a pop of color.
The other part, situated at the back is dedicated to the shop experience. The space is an ode to craftsmanship. The high ceilings offer a luminous space that showcase the work of makers, ceramist or textile designers. The paper clay ceramics of Paola Paronetto seat next to Judith Lasry raw tableware. On another side you can find Marta Bonilla unique lamps, Anne Carneval objects and Virginie Sin ceramic weave structures.
In a cosy corner, a relaxation area give you time to enjoy and browse through independent editions magazines.
Sessùn Alma is the perfect place to enjoy and discover the values of an ethical and committed label.
