France has been the graceful leader in fashion and design since taste was considered a competition in society. Kings and Queens would invite leaders to their extravagant homes and introduce them to what true elegant design was. This posh lifestyle would create curiosity and even alliances among neighboring countries.
To embrace the Parisian style, one must highlight antique furniture, textiles, and detailed ceilings with romantic ambient light from chandeliers that warm the rooms along with the warm herringbone wooden oors and mosaic tiles.
The headquarters of Pinterest in Paris have the duty to flirt with the history Paris has gifted us. The interiors of this building will re ect both the soul of Pinterest and the spirit of Parisian design.
“Our goal is to connect everyone in the world through the ‘things’ they find interesting. We think that a favorite book, toy, or recipe can reveal a common link between two people. With millions of new pins added every week, Pinterest is connecting people all over the world based on shared tastes and interest.”
The open plan of Pinterest HQ will be symbolically broken down into more intimate spaces using architectural features inspired by iconic Parisian landmarks, such as the Arc de Triomphe and the entrance of the Louvre. Space is also divided vertically; those to be enjoyed by both guests and staff are located downstairs, while the ones occupied primarily by the employees are on the second level. This allows for a spatial division of the social areas from the the productive series of work zones.
Pinterest Headquarters will be designed to be inspiring and reflective of the brand. The palette for the space will be fresh and uplifting with the use of white, grey and other cool colors, but will be balanced by adding warm wood tones, golds, and grounding greens. Of course there will be touches of the iconic Pinterest red. Natural light will be a big part of the design as well; making the work space inviting and bright.
Nestled in the heart of Paris, just a mile from the Eiffel Tower, our site creates the perfect opportunity for classic Parisian design. The first two floors will be the new home to Pinterest's Paris office, encompassing both indoor and outdoor spaces.
