MHT Boutique

View text

Asked by friend and jeweller Marie-Hélène de Taillac to design her Tokyo boutique, Marc decided to rebuild the space using smooth, light blue lacquered wood for the walls and shelving. The specific shade of blue Marc chose matched a hue he had admired on shōji screens in an imperial villa in Kyoto. The floor and seating were clad in white leather, providing a neutral base for the rich blue. The only other colour in the entire boutique was the red MHT logo on the rear wall. The jewellery was displayed in parallelogram-shaped nooks in the walls.
