A remarkable location

In 2016, following an ambitious renovation, Kering established its head office at 40, rue de Sèvres, an address renowned for its exceptional architecture. The Group wishes for the site, with its rich history dating back nearly 400 years, to remain accessible to all. It has therefore decided to open its doors to the public for European Heritage Days, temporary exhibitions and other events. Welcome to 40, rue de Sèvres.

A space welcoming the arts… and the world

Kering would like this architectural gem, which it has the privilege of occupying, to remain an open and welcoming space. Since 2016, the Group has registered 40, rue de Sèvres with the European Heritage Days program. Its goal is twofold: to share the history of this exceptional site and to provide a unique perspective on art and fashion. Each year, visitors can admire a selection of contemporary artworks from the Pinault Collection and as well as creations from the archives of the House of Balenciaga, which also has its headquarters at the former Laennec Hospital. Neighbors, Parisians or tourists from afar: so far 40, rue de Sèvres has welcomed nearly 30,000 visitors in four years.
