La Variété

    It is fitting that La Varieté should set up shop in Upper Raval – this area’s ever-changing nature echoes the store’s tagline, “…in continuous movement.” Constantly looking to re-imagine and re-create, everything you find here is Ricard Commeleran’s design-led solution to a product that already exists in one form or another. Originally trained in Fine Art, French-born Ricard’s exploratory nature led him to northern Thailand, where local craft workshops inspired him to create a fledgling range of elegant paper pouches that had once been concrete sacks in a previous life. In 2007 he set up his first shop in Mallorca and brought Varieté to Barcelona with his partner Raquel in 2011. The line has grown to include delicate wooden hangers, bracelets, curious wall hangings, hand-woven bottle-holders and cotton pillowslips, all of which are produced with a clean aesthetic in mind. Respect for detail is also reflected in the close relationships that Ricard has developed with the craftsmen he relies on for technical expertise. “It’s important to reduce. We find elegance in simplicity,” says Raquel. Show lessRead more
