Kusmi Paris has been blending its famous teas since 1867,
notably ‘Bouquet of Flowers’ a favourite of Tsar Nicholas II.
Initially based in Saint Petersburg, the brand moved to Paris in 1917.

This new flagship is a balance of Kusmi’s baroque Russian heritage
with its French provenance, creating a new luxury positioning
through narrative and ritual.

Kusmi’s iconic packaging created a starting point,
leading to a special collaboration with Bisazza
in which their matt white mosaic glass tiles used for the first time,
are set with-in an abstract pattern of primary and secondary colours.

veneers and mother-of-pearl.

A bespoke parquet floor in Italian marble and French Oak
sits below a breathtaking three tiered, cnc Stainless Steel chandelier.
that disappears into a multi-coloured, stained-glass onion dome,
evoking the Russian heritage of the brand.
