Delvaux Le 27

Vudafieri Saverino Partners as Architects

Housed in a majestic Mansion on Boulevard de Waterloo, a high-end luxury shopping area, "Le 27" is much more than a boutique: it is a unique environment, combining the savoirfaire of the Delvaux collections with the beauty of the greatest items of Belgian design, paintings and ceramics, giving life to an art gallery in continuous evolution.


The project is signed by the Milan based studio Vudafieri-Saverino Partners, which since 2012 has been responsible for the design of Delvaux stores worldwide (more than 40 of them, including boutiques in Paris, London, Shanghai, Tokyo, Dubai ...), creating boutiques that are always different from one other.


A philosophy that now reaches its culmination with "Le 27", whose design is based on a completely new, made-to-measure concept: Vudafieri-Saverino Partners assigns a key role to Belgian historical memory, while still supporting the desire to make way for contemporary trends. A place where Delvaux's philosophy and heritage find their ultimate expression.


The space - once a magnificent private villa - has preserved its original structure, with the walls embellished by nineteenth-century mirrors and frescoes. Vudafieri-Saverino Partners has preserved these historical spaces, reinterpreting the interiors in an avant-garde language, rich in learned and refined references. The rooms are a contemporary interpretation and celebration of the early period of modern design that was so important in Belgian 20th century culture. Examples are the wall displays, conceived as abstract paintings, whose design is a to Mondrian's De Stijl artistic movement.


The furnishings are enriched by unique pieces created by the Masters of the Belgian design: Jules Wabbes, Pieter de Bruyne, Renaat Braem, Emiel Verannema. There is also room for works of contemporary Belgian designers (Nathalie Dewez, Alain Berteau and Ben Storms) and international personalities, such as the Italian Gino Sarfatti. Leads to the first floor a series of photographs, by the Argentine artist Romina Ressia, in which post-neo-Flemish portraits are combined with daily and kitsch artifacts. A collection of twentieth-century Belgian ceramics appears here and there on a wall, embodying the fantastic, endless creativity of local artists.
