New Birkenstock showroom at the heart of Paris

Category:

Birkenstock is opening a new Paris showroom devoted to the 1774 line, to be launched soon, and to the brand’s special projects.

The showroom is designed as a shop window, and conceived to celebrate the quality and innovative spirit of the firm, inventor of the footbed. Nick Vinson from Vinson & Co took care of designing the interiors, after touring Europe in search for  furnishings, ornaments, and both vintage and new furniture in a palette of warm wood and aged leather tones.
