French Modernist Mecca
Located in the Bastille district of Paris, the bright and airy Galerie Patrick Seguin, established in 1989 at its current location, is home to a carefully curated selection of design objects, furniture, architecture and contemporary art by Jean Prouvé, Charlotte Perriand, Le Corbusier and the likes.
Stepping into the Jean Nouvel-designed space is like entering a different universe as the tranquil, almost sacred sensation is in stark contrast to the hustle and bustle of the streets of Paris. Over two decades, Seguin has been instrumental in bringing the works of said artists to a broader audience, preserving and championing the original works and their unique features.
We left the regular world outside for while, replacing it with some relaxation among some of the world’s most coveted pieces of furniture.
