Richemont owns several of the world’s leading companies in the field of luxury goods, with particular strengths in jewellery, luxury watches and writing instruments including Cartier, Van Cleef & Arpels, Piaget, Vacheron Constantin, Jaeger-LeCoultre, IWC Schaffhausen, Panerai and Montblanc.
The interior concept was inspired by the building, carefully restored by Great Portland Estates, as well as by the brands’ ethos of precision engineering, craftsmanship and the pursuit of excellence. Richemont acquired the entire 39,000 ft2 building with its own Regent St entrance.
‘Elegant, professional, simple, practical’ were the key values for the building to express. The scheme is restrained and brand-neutral. With a hint of corporate colours, the palette is light, warm and not overly complicated. High quality finishes, rigorous detailing and understated style will create a professional and pragmatic business environment for the management and visitors alike.
