French designer Pierre Cardin’s Bubble House or “Palais Bulles” is an architectural fantasy.
Designed in 1989 by Antti Lovag, and located near San Tropes, in the south of France, the house – which can be rented out for special events – is a futurist fantasy worthy of the Jetsons.
As well as being the designer whose look is most associate with the “Space Age” fashions of the 1960′s,
Pierre Cardin was a pioneer with innovative business ideas. He was the first couturier to turn to Japan as a market in 1959. In that same year he was also the first Parisian couturier to create a “ready-to-wear” line ~ a decision that got him temporarily expelled from the Chambre syndicale de la haute couture parisienne, the trade guild that governed Haute Couture fashion.*(Thank you wikipedia.org)
The panoramic lounge, the reception room and the 10 suites decorated by contemporary (in 1989 – love the mauve & gray color scheme) artists like Jérôme Tisserand and François Chauvin are filled with furnishings, may of them designed by Pierre Cardin, himself, which reflect the designer’s love of curves and clean lines.
The gardens, ponds and pools extend over more than 2 acres.
The unusual setting and space age lines make the Bubble House a coveted location for movie & television shoots, and can be rented – just in case you are looking for a unique location for your cocktail party or destination wedding.
