The acquisition of pieces sought within historical libraries and age-old archives is a unique source of inspiration and a major resource for customers and designers: the collections of the most exclusive brands are created here, during unmissable annual appointments.
The archive is home to a bookbinding activity with 19th century machinery, where the books and volumes are restored, and the new design archive, currently being digitalised, constantly updated and expanded. History and future meet.
