"TASCHEN aumenta progresivamente su lista de stores. Uno de los últimos en abrirse ha sido en la ciudad del Támesis. Situado frente a la galería Saatchi, se trata de un blanquísimo espacio - diseñado por Philippe Starck, 3f Architects y B3 Designers - donde todo cede protagonismo a los libros expuestos en unos moldes de bronce que le dan la dimensión de obras de arte." — Nuevo Estilo, Madrid, Spain
“Unless you’re Chanel or Vuitton, it’s nigh on impossible to pull off the monobrand shop, so we’ll put TASCHEN in the category of high-design bookstore, capable of doing monobrand with flair. The brand, founded by the German patriarch Benedikt, has done well by hiring Philippe Starck to outfit its Chelsea store; two snug spaces stacked one upon the other, building a series of immense storage islands down the middle to serve as browsing stations. Nobody’s hiding the imprint’s exhibitionist tendencies here: titles like Bondage by Nobuyoshi Araki and The Big Book of Pussy are laid bare on the plinths, alongside the new Sebastião Salgado and the wonderful 36 Hours: 125 Weekends in Europe. TASCHEN’s travel series is stacked in back. If these don’t grab you, descend to the store’s depths, organised like an East End gallery complete with framed vintage prints, an antique Esther Scroll, a 10-kilo LaChapelle monograph and the odd inflatable dolphin. Nobody can blame them for poor merchandising. Or for their choice of real estate: say what you will about the plain-vanilla Duke of York Square - it has never looked this good.” — London Design Guide, London, United Kingdom
“Designed by the ubiquitous Philippe Starck, the cool publisher's bookshop and basement gallery is the place to go for glossy coffee-table tomes on the subjects of art, architecture, design, pop culture, travel and sex.” — The London Magazine, London, United Kingdom
"Highly appropriately placed within stone's throw of Saatchi gallery gates, near Sloane Square, obviously designed yet again by Mr. Starck himself, TASCHEN London bookstore and gallery is bibliophile heaven dedicated to perusal of eclectic art books. With its cool and collected space, muted tones and superb lighting, there is no better place to discover TASCHEN collectible books covering art, design, architecture, pop culture, travel and sex. Largely recognized as falling within coffee table book genre, you may find some more original formats and subject topics." — BlackBook.com, New York, United States
"For glossy coffee-table books, look no further than TASCHEN's new London store. The bookshop and basement gallery, designed by Philippe Starck, is the ideal place to put together your own personal art and design library." — Living Etc, London, United Kingdom
