A Thousand Future Blossoms
For the past 125 years, the Galeries Lafayette group has maintained a strong commitment to all creators.
All our projects are opportunities to pursue this commitment and embed culture at the heart of the city. With support from its real estate management company Citynove, the Galeries Lafayette invited the artist Martin Boyce to create his first Parisian installation for the Eataly store located at 37 rue Sainte-Croix-de-la-Bretonnerie. In striving to develop an urban, cultural and commercial ecosystem that respects the history of the site and the environment, the Galeries Lafayette group is once again ensuring that art lies at the heart of its architectural programme. Martin Boyce’s timeless work links three elements specifically designed for the renovated building and adjacent courtyard: a gate, a floor and a glass ceiling. Located at the heart of an ecosystem linking the historical Bazar de l’Hôtel de Ville to to Lafayette Anticipations – Fondation d’entreprise Galeries Lafayette, the Eataly Paris Marais installation is a new promenade in the centre of Paris.
