Arne Quinze for the new L’Eclaireur in Paris
When Martine and Armand Hadida opened their first boutique on the Champs Elysée in 1980, the plan was to introduce new and emerging fashion brands to Paris. (L’Eclaireur //fr. = Scout //eng.). In 2009 L’Eclaireur dares to take it to another level by entrusting the realization of their new 450 m2 venue on 40 rue de Sévigné in Paris, to Belgian artist Arne Quinze. Founder of Studio Arne Quinze, the conceptual architecture and design platform, Arne Quinze is a self-taught man who’s talent manifests in multiple disciplines: contemporary art, video installations, modern transportation techniques and spaces like Square Brussels Meeting Center (2009), die kunstbar in Cologne (2008) and upcoming a grand conceptual architecture masterplan for Belair, a 100.000 square meter location in Brussels. Nevertheless these crossovers Arne Quinze stays foremost an artist.
