Discover the special window with artist Ugo Gattoni's drawings
Maison Hermès Dosan Park opened its doors in November, 2006 in Dosan Park in Seoul. It has established itself as one of Seoul’s leading cultural spaces over the past decade, and it looks forward to another decade with a new look to be unveiled on 20th May, 2017.
Maison Hermès Dosan Park’s transformation process will be vividly portrayed through the special drawings of French illustrator, Ugo Gattoni. A Parisian born artist and art director, he is known for his exquisitely detailed portraits and depictions of strange objects. Working predominantly with graphite or ink, his work is a whirlwind of minute details, dreamlike characters, and typography. He became known particularly in 2011 when he created the 10-metre mural “Ultra Copains” in Paris, and later his illustration book titled “Bicycle” brought him to the attention of Hermès who he has been working with since.
The six windows of Maison Hermès Dosan Park have been playfully depicted with a horse at work, in homage to Hermès’ equestrian origins as a harness- and saddle-maker since 1837 in Paris. Hence, while the transformation of Maison Hermès Dosan Park progresses inside, this friendly character is holding a can of paint in one window, resting in a hammock in another, and sitting on a staircase elsewhere. The witty drawings of Ugo Gattoni will evolve: stay tuned to see what interesting stories unfold.
The store will remain open during the transformations. We will be pleased to welcome you via a different entrance.
