Berlin – For the time being, the champagne stayed in the fridge for the customers. The new Hermès store opened on the ground floor of the KaDeWe in mid-December – exactly one day before the lockdown. Now a real jewel of shop design can finally be inspected with a “Click & Meet” appointment.

We wanted to find out more and spoke via teams with Denis Montel, who is responsible for the design of all Hermès boutiques worldwide. Montel was sitting in the Paris RDAI office, which surrounds one of the typical historic backyards of the Rue de Mail in the 2nd arrondissement. Behind him stood an immaculately proportioned high shelf as if from Art Deco – albeit in bright, sunny yellow.
