Whether you're a designer or just have a love of good design, this experience is for you. Meet up with Anne, a graphic designer + urban explorer living in Paris (who worked as a long time contributing editor for Design*Sponge) to see Paris through the eyes of a designer. We'll visit some key design shops, but also think about the design of the city along the way.
We'll meet up at MERCI, the famous concept shop known for the red Fiat in the courtyard that is decorated in the theme of each shop installation. If you fancy a coffee, we'll take a break to chat design in the cafe. We'll visit some great shops in the haut Marais or possibly a great design bookstore, a French paper store, and we have a few potential routes we can take depending on your interests. We'll likely pass some street art en route, and I'll be sure to give you recommendations on how to continue your design exploration on your own.
Tour can be flexible and tweaked according to your interests.
As a freelancer I don't take bookings more than 1-month in advance, but also I'm happy to accept very last minute bookings too (when available)! *PLEASE MESSAGE – via Vayable – ME BEFORE BOOKING. Merci! Note too that I will only be accepting a limited number of bookings this summer due to my other freelance work. I cannot always guarantee a response within 24 hours due to deadlines, and on weekends.*
Tour not offered on Sundays (due to closures).
