7th September is a date to be marked on the calendar. You cannot miss out on the inauguration of the new Marazzi Showroom in Paris, which will take place on the eve of Paris Design Week, among the major events dedicated to the district of Saint-Germain-des- Prés. 

The design of the Marazzi Showroom, a leading company in the design and manufacture of ceramic tiles worlwide, will occupy three floors of a nineteenth-century building located in the Saint-Germain-des-Prés district and will retain all the flair of typical Parisian architecture. 

With this new and prestigious opening - which comes a few months after the inauguration of the showroom in London last May - Marazzi wants to continue on the path of strengthening its presence in the main European capitals and brand positioning in the international community of architects and interior designers.

The new Marazzi showroom in Paris is precisely located at 63, Boulevard Saint-Germain, in the V arrondissement, on the Rive Gauche of the Seine, in a Haussmannian complex, dating back to the second half of the 19th century and overlooking Boulevard Saint-Germain and Rue Thénard. 

The project concept organised the rooms respecting the historical and cultural heritage of the building, which for years was used as a library, and keeping intact the apartment on the first floor with its finishes, characterized by an amazing, original division of rooms, marked with mirrors and fireplaces. 

The ground floor welcomes visitors and presents the latest Marazzi collections through a scenic device of “broken fins”, ceramic monoliths inspired by the peaks and quarry materials, while the complete archive of the products is realized with all-around bookshelves in the basement. The upper floor apartment has rooms of different sizes and hosts working tables for meetings and operational meetings alongside mood boards resting on the walls. 

The showroom is the result of an executive project curated by Marcel Mauer firm in collaboration with the architects Lorenzo Baldini and Antonio Pisano, and is a significant step for the company as mentioned by Mauro Vandini, the Managing Director of Marazzi: 

“After Clerkenwell in London, Marazzi is now found in Saint-Germain-des-Prés in Paris because together with the international community of architects and designers we want to bring our proposal of mixing tradition and innovation in the most iconic districts of Europe, where the culture of design and project has its deepest roots”.
