By providing short-term rental of commercial spaces, the City of Luxembourg offers creators, entrepreneurs or start-ups the opportunity to test a new product, service or concept in direct contact with their customers. Thus, the concept of “pop-up stores” serves as a springboard for tenants who can take advantage of a first experience in a physical store before launching a permanent business. In addition, pop-up stores contribute to the creation of a rich commercial offer and attract a broad public in the city center.
Within the framework of the European Design Festival, designers are presenting limited or exclusive products in pop-up stores:
Flower Club, located at 3, rue Origer, a flower store that also offers bouquet creation workshops with the aim of creating a meeting and learning zone.
Astartelux Jewelry, located at 26 rue des Capucins, is a boutique specialising in ethical and sustainable jewelry making. The brand aims to revive ancient craftsmanship and contribute to the conservation and preservation of the world’s cultural heritage by drawing on the techniques and methods of past civilizations.
ArtCodeUa, located at 40 rue Philippe II, is a boutique offering items by Ukrainian designers and with 40% of the proceeds from sales going to aid organizations active in Ukraine.
Maison Hagda, located at 40 rue Philippe II (from July 5), will feature interior design products made by Moroccan cooperatives.
Awka, located at 43, Grand Rue, is a boutique of contemporary art and unique clothing inspired by the heritage of Ecuador.
The Vintage Store, located at 38 Philippe II Street, offers a selection of vintage products from the 1960s to the 1990s.
Casino Display, dedicated to research and artistic experimentation, welcomes graphic designer in residence Océane Muller. This historical venue, located in the heart of the old city of Luxembourg, today showcases contemporary creation and will be open to visitors.
Discover the design studios at the 1535° Creative Hub, located in a former industrial site in Differdange in the south of the country. This is a unique place in the grand duchy that hosts a multitude of studios and offices for start-ups and freelancers working in the creative industries. The bus tour continues to Esch-Belval, site of the University of Luxembourg.

In partnership with Sales-Lentz.
(Re)discover the film Mon Oncle (1958), one of the great masterpieces of the French director Jacques Tati. This film humorously questions post-war society’s relationship with modern architecture and design. It contrasts the traditional, informal and lively city with the suburban housing sectors that developed during this period in the suburbs of major French cities.
Modern architecture is personified by the Villa Arpel. This automated house with its clean lines became an icon of the architecture of the period without having existed outside of the film set and the exhibition spaces that recreated it, highlighting the influence that criticism can have on the discourse on architecture and the city.

Venue: Casino Luxembourg – Forum d’art contemporain, rue Notre-Dame (parvis)
(text in English to come soon)
La partie ouest de la « Ënneschtgaass » (rue Notre-Dame) qui longe l’entrée principale du Casino Luxembourg, est un lieu en transition continue depuis des années : d’une aire de taxis à un chantier de construction, elle est aujourd’hui devenue un lieu indéfini – entre emplacements pour vélos, accès de livraison, shared zone délimitée par des pots de fleurs en béton anti-terreur pour dissuader les actes terroristes… et parking sauvage.
D’où la nécessité et l’urgence de repenser l’endroit. À quoi pourrait ressembler un milieu-associé entre un centre d’art (le Casino) et la ville ? Comment pourrait-on imaginer ce lieu en terme relationnel ? Pourrait-on envisager que le Casino Luxembourg sorte de ses murs pour s’approprier le parvis ?
Au cours de trois journées d’échange collaboratif sur le parvis face au Casino Luxembourg, nous poserons les premiers jalons d’une réflexion sur les possibilités de transformation de ce lieu.
Organised by: Casino Luxembourg – Forum d’art contemporain
