Which among you never fell under the charm of one of these nineteenth , beginning of the twentieth Century shops-front, with the refined ornamentation attracting interest to the promising interior.
Since many years the cities fill up with places complying to the same rules, creating standardization, but they miss the essence: atmosphere. The role of the store-front is double : it must inform the customer of the nature of the activity and attract it by the esthetic quality. This role is filled by the external decoration which associates the text and the image, which must be immediately significant for the passers by.
Lucien HELLE has this ability. He can harmonize the old and contemporary techniques. His goal : to preserve the heart of our streets by privileging the authenticity of your shops. To do so, with a large decorative repertory, he uses noble materials such as wood, ceramics, copper and Gold foil. He is one of the last to know the mysteries of how to use gold foil. Some understood it and entrusted him for the realization of their front. The result is always astonishing, these front-stores do not belong to the past, as you can believe.
