I LOVE: Galerie BSL

This is not just an art gallery. It is a piece of art by itself. Next time you're in Paris it's definitely worth a visit.
"It is a question of assembling rare objects and creating a dialogue between them, objects which innately offer an experience of intimacy, of connection and, why not, emotion.” 
This is how the concept of the new Paris design gallery is defined by its founder Béatrice Saint-Laurent.
Galerie BSL is located in Marais at 23 rue Charlot, Paris 3rd and was designed by Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance - architect, designer, scenographer. He has created a sequence of spiral white Corian, a functional sculpture extrapolated to architectural dimensions. This structure becomes the first object placed in the gallery which was created to exhibit other objects.

Galerie BSL presents one-off and limited-edition series, made exclusively for the gallery, in contemporary art, design, vintage jewellery and fashion.
