The Louvre bookstore and gift shop



The Louvre museum bookstore and gift shop takes up the entire Grand Louvre alley located between the Carousel and Pyramid entry points. In a new space of 1850 m2 redesigned by the RDAI agency, the bookstore and gift shop is a modern and luminous space which presents a meticulous assortment of products.

Undo-Redo is inspired by the geometry of the Louvre Pyramid, designed by Pei, to imagine a clear, effective and refined signage. On the basis of a construction grid composed of triangles, a system of modular supports of engraved and silkscreened Corian is drawn. The flat figures interlock and the compositions vary like in a Tangram puzzle.

A study of the signs built on the layer of the grid was done to define a series of pictograms that illustrate the commercial themes of the shop.

The project is achieved in collaboration with

l'agence Gare du Nord Architecture et Valérie de Berardinis
