Polène’s commitment to savoir-faire is emphasized in the ancestral Japanese technique of Urushi lacquer. Meticulously applied by hand, this technique gives a smooth, glossy appearance to all the furniture, which take the shape of deep blue stones. A special hue developed for the custom-made leather seats.
With its glass panels designed by Atelier Barrois glassmakers, the staircase echoes flowing water. These same artisans also collaborated with designer Johan Viladrich to create a custom glass table that resembles ice.
Echoing the New York boutique, the house again pays tribute to the exceptional work of designer Jorge Penadés with a checkout counter made from compressed leather off-cuts.
The boutique’s interior draws inspiration from the outdoor world throughout, with its Japanese oak flooring, rounded pebble-shaped leather lighting and natural-toned walls.
