In bohemian Saint-Germain-des-Prés, the artistic, intellectual and festive heart of 1960s Paris, the meeting of three multidisciplinary artists, united by their shared sense of beauty, love of nature and insatiable curiosity, marked the birth of a creative adventure. Diptyque opens the door to a singular world: a space bridging dreams and reality, intimacy and universality, where imagination runs free and creativity is unleashed.
Diptyque is a name and a promise of creativity and imagination. A story composed by a trio of aesthetes, the first chapter of which was written in the Sixties, at 34 boulevard Saint-Germain.
34 boulevard Saint-Germain – 5th arrondissement, Paris
The birthplace of Diptyque, at the heart of the Latin Quarter, 34 boulevard Saint-Germain is steeped in history and imbued with fantasy, a place of poetic wanderings.
Craftsmanship is the expression of human sensitivity and imagination in material form. Shining a light on the skills of artists and craftspeople and taking them to new heights has always been central to the Maison’s philosophy.
Making scented candles is a craft that demands time and an intimate knowledge of their materials – wax, wick and fragrance. This expertise has been built up and mastered by the Maison over more than 60 years.
Working alongside some of the most remarkable glass manufacturers throughout France and Europe, such as the Nivyne workshop, Diptyque has honed its extraordinary expertise magnifying the brilliance of candlelight in candle holders with kaleidoscopic effects.
Diptyque’s large, sculptural candles attest to the expertise of the ceramists at the Virebent workshop, one of the artisanal ceramic workshops the Maison collaborates with in France and Europe.
