The Cartier store in Geneva, located at number 35 of the luxury boutique street, rue du Rhône, since 1969, and situated at the tip of lac Léman, has just been renovated. This listed building encompasses the historical expertise of Swiss jewelry craftsmanship, and houses the ateliers de la restauration Cartier tradition and Cartier poinçon. Agency Moinard Bétaille in collaboration with the Cartier patrimoine team came to me to create the floor and fresco for the main entrance of the store.
The marble floor “Soleil levant” is composed of a brass insert inspired by a piece of Cartier jewelry and it spreads out to preface the large fresco in mosaic comprised of six panels. Each element from Geneva is represented in a pure and magnified way: edelweiss, grasses… are brought together in a hue of similar shades, a monochrome of lac Léman colours; the shoreline melts into mountains, glittering snow, sky and this is where the snow leopard sits as queen.
