Harrods, London

Architect Laura Gonzalez commissions Atelier Bernard Pictet for glass furnishings for the Cartier boutique at Harrods, London.

Laura Gonzalez’s concept for this shop-in-shop conveys the luxury, prestige and refinement of the Parisian jeweller.

The various glass wall furnishings by Bernard Pictet, the metallization effects and pearlized textures, together with the opulent, hand-shaped, fluted glass chandeliers are all indicative of the craftsman’s hand while retaining a distinctly contemporary feel.
As if to echo the existing woodwork, oak panels connect the different spaces, creating a softer feel with their smooth curves and rounded corners.
The bronze and chiselled glass facade invites customers to be part of a rare experience, away from the rest of the world inside a light-filled, feminine and elegant space.

For the outside facades and vestibules, the studio created 16 glass panels (24 square metres in total) featuring a chiselled and engraved pattern that suggests a waterfall.
In the Men’s area, six square metres of glass have been engraved using a technique developed by the studio then accented with patinated gold leaf.
