New Camper store in Paris by Nendo
Camper opens a new store in Paris. The store is located in Rue de Buci 3 in the wonderful St.Germain area on the left bank of the Seine river.
The store was designed by Nendo as part of the Camper Together Project. This is a new collaboration between Camper and Nendo after the Camper store in Osaka inaugurated this year and the Bread & Butter stand in 2009.
Nendo’s approach was inspired by the raison d’être of Camper shoes: to contribute to the pleasure of walking. The shoes walk around the store on their own giving the appearance that they are walking through the air.
Oki Sato (Toronto, 1977), the founder of Nendo, studied Architecture at the Waseda University in Tokyo and opened the studio in that city in 2002. Nendo is a multidisciplinary studio embracing architecture, interior design, events, furniture, products and graphic design. Despite the characteristic hallmark of oriental creativity, neither the studio nor its projects can be described as classical. Oki Sato’s preferred language is “ethereal”, which his team of collaborators interpret and reproduce with the same voice, enabling him to fulfil his numerous commissions. The studio has been warmly received in the west by leading companies such as Cappellini, Cartier, Driade, Fritz Hansen, Hermès, Kartell, Moroso, Puma and Thonet, among a long list of clients. So much so, that in 2005 the studio decided to open a branch in Milan. The work accomplished since then has led this year, 2012, to the Wallpaper* Designer of the Year award.
