At the back of a small internal courtyard, this is an Ali Baba cave filled with objects which are straight from the innovative minds of inventors! Tableware, decorations, furnishings, games...everything is completely new and in small production runs that you won't find anywhere else. Hey, great idea!



Leonardo da Vinci Spirit



Here, we are far from the ubiquitous made in China. All the items are prototypes and first series - clever little gismos just like their inventors. The Boutique des Inventions has one sole aim: to inspire inventors and give them access to something else than a Concours Lépine inventor's medal. In store: exclusive items - everything is completely unique, that you won't find anywhere else. Tableware, furniture, games, decorative objects, bags, textiles...from trivial to useful, but always original.

Ideas galore



Kangaroo tea cups with a handy pocket for your tea-bag, cardboard chairs to paint that can withstand up to 150 kg, a vase that transforms automatically on contact with hot water, a Teckit to carry several shopping bags without cutting your fingers, indicators for bikes that are easily fixed to the handlebars with Velcro fasteners…

Open every day 11:00-19:00 (and 14:00-19:00 on Tuesdays)

Brigitte, 39 MOTHER

Mother, bohemian and Parisian, I love Paris' cosmopolitan side and warmth. Exhibitions, walks, outings with the children...I'll take you on a discovery of the most welcoming places in Paris. My little extra: with my love of food as my compass, I always set course for the best lemon tarts in the city.
