The charming and inventive French colouring-in brand unveils its first permanent address.
French art brand OMY is fast becoming a household name in Paris, thanks to its giant colour-in maps of cities. These large-scale black-and-white depictions of Paris, London and Tokyo are now stocked in craft stores, gift shops and bookshops all around the world (including at the Gaîté Lyrique in Paris and MOMA in New York), but OMY now also boasts its own charming little address in the French capital.
Elvire Laurent and Marie-Cerie Lichtlé, both graphic designers, came up with the concept in 2012 after completing their studies at the prestigious École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs, and their brand has really taken off here in the handful of years since. At this new boutique you can pick up postcards (€7.90 for 16), placemats, notelets (€5.50), city maps (€19.90) and posters, all drawn with black outlines that wait, tantalisingly, to be filled in.
