Le Creuset Sydney Store

Premium French cookware brand le Creuset opens the doors to their first stand-alone flagship store in Australia. Located in the heart of the city in a heritage building on King Street, Sydney, the compact space has undergone a complete refurbishment and will offer customers the opportunity to browse and purchase the entire le Creuset range.

Known for their meticulous eye for detail and sophisticated approach to design, a team of British architects, Leckenby Associates, have used a combination of solid beech furnishings and European oak flooring to create a neutral backdrop that will allow maximum focus on the selection of signature colours le Creuset has to offer. Special design features include a le Creuset casserole lid wall as well as a chandelier made entirely from le Creuset Tagine Lids.

To mark the launch of the first le Creuset stand-alone store, Paper Installation Artist Samanatha Gazal will be designing a colourful 3D window display using a combination of paper and le Creuset pots. Samantha’s signature installations have included The Melting Paper Beach Balls (Westfield) and The Paper Candy Bar (The Eyescene, Double Bay):

“I wanted to convey Le Creuset’s explosion of colour – colouring Sydney for the launch of their first Australian store. I love that the fragility and ephemeral nature of the paper contrast so distinctly with the solidity of the product and its guarantee to last forever” commented Gazal.
