Jouin Manku Studio Unveils Work on Manhattan’s Van Cleef & Arpels Store

12 March, 2014

-By Holly O'Dell


Jouin Manku Studio has redesigned the three-story Van Cleef & Arpels boutique in New York City, taking inspiration from Art Deco architecture and ornamentation. Folded brass panels on the exterior create a textural geometric pattern reflective of the city’s movement.



On the ground floor of the 5,730-sq.-ft. store, large transparent domes and a 4-ft. chandelier featuring small slivers cut out from a curved piece of spun brass overlook a circular table, as well as sales desks and display cases adapted from pieces designed for previous renovations.



A sculptural staircase with American walnut treads and handrail, balustrade, and string constructed of glass and brass leads to the mezzanine level, reminiscent of the townhouse with a curated library. Custom-made elements such as hinged mirrors and sofas complement walls lined with a fern-patterned damask.



In the reception room on the second floor, a lighting fixture comprising 777 pieces of white glass hovers over a table with a removable top made in American walnut. Pearly decorative panels, joined together with a polished brass detail, cover the walls.



Luxurious details continue to the third level, home to an exclusive shopping environment illuminated by a chandelier comprising 720 curved and beveled pieces of glass. The ceiling’s bronze geometric motif echoes the metal work on the exterior and staircase.
