After more than 170 years on the Right Bank, Hermès recently hopped over to Paris’s other shore—though the iconic brand doesn’t exactly find itself on dry land, having occupied a former swimming hall built in 1935. In redesigning the historic space, the RDAI agency respected its original Art Deco mosaics and ironwork balconies but made sure to add a jolt of modernity via three gigantic wood huts that stand in the center of it all. These structures are pods in which happy shoppers will find all things Hermès, with a special emphasis on products for the home. In fact, they account for more than a third of the store: Furniture designed by Jean-Michel Frank, new wallpaper, textiles, carpets and dishware are just some of the highlights. As much as this merits a trip to 17 Rue de Sèvres, in May Hermès is introducing the greatest hits from this collection to the United States.
