Art and fashion collide in the new Jacquemus Paris office where form and function go hand in hand



Jacquemus unveiled their new Paris office and it’s putting all other workplaces to shame. 

Simply named “The Office” and taking over an entire building in the 8th arrondissement in the city of love, the French fashion house collaborated with architectural firm OMA and workplace strategist Unispace to bring founder Simon Porte Jacquemus’ latest vision to life.

The newest Jacquemus headquarters virtually doubles as a gallery, housing numerous artworks curated by Simon Porte himself. The centerpiece, which can also be seen from the outside, is the “L’Air (2e état)” by French sculptor and painter Aristide Maillol. Elsewhere, another Maillol piece called the “Pomone aux bras tombants” graces the space. 

The artworks on display were sourced from several galleries, including Galerie Chenel, Bel Etage Galerie, Galerie Buchholz, Galerie Dina Vierny, and Galerie Maxime Flatry.

This collaboration follows Jacquemus’ previous project with OMA—the creation of their latest boutiques in London, Paris, and Dubai. “The Office” takes after the design sensibilities of these “shop-in-shops,” mirroring Simon Porte’s aesthetic and penchant for “continuous spaces.”

“Made of natural components and applied by hand, the materials preserve a level of irregularity, which gives the design a sense of naturalness and craftsmanship. Like in the ‘sculpted interiors’ of French artist Valentine Schlegel (1925-2021), the architectural elements merge with the furniture into one continuous space, making the stores more than a place to shop—a place to feel at home,” shares OMA in a press release.
