Wild Volumes - Inside TASCHEN's startling new store
by Greg Goldin
— Los Angeles Magazine, Los Angeles, United States
"Now, international art-book publisher TASCHEN aims to do things differently. Founded in Germany by Benedikt Taschen, the eponymously named firm has opened its first US outpost, in the heart of Beverly Hills. Designed by Philippe Starck, the store is a high, narrow space where the shelves are glossy walnut, the love seats are done up in golden leather, and an upstairs exhibition gallery is imported glass from Paris. The Euro sleekness could have made TASCHEN LA a forbidding place - even to browse; instead you feel as if you've wandered into a sophisticated literary boudoir. There is, for instance, the volume of photographs from Japanese photographer Nobuyoshi Araki that sells for $2,000. And don't overlook GOAT, a photo tribute to Muhammad Ali. At 75 pounds, the "Champ's Edition" costs $7,500." — Movieline's Hollywood Life, Los Angeles, United States
"The celebrated, often provocative art book publisher opens its first U.S. store, and it's a beauty. We especially like the lounge area in the back with its black leather banquette, plasma TV screens and communal reading table. Titles range from nice - Seaside Interiors - to naughty - Motel Fetish. We had particular fun flipping through the pages of a little book called Vintage Food Graphics, which memorializes such products as Tater Pokes, Rots O' Ruck, Candee and Corn Flakes with Instant Bananas." — WHERE, Los Angeles, United States
"Avant-garde German publishing house TASCHEN has teamed up with architect Philippe Starck for its just opened U.S. flagship in Beverly Hills. The bookstore, which sells limited editions priced in the thousands, is suitably glitzy, with gold leather accents, purple mirror and glossy walnut wood cases. Artist Albert Oehlen also created 20 computer-generated collages for the walls and ceiling." — Women's Wear Daily, New York, United States
"The narrow high-ceiling space is sexy, with its glitzy-boudoir-meets-Parisian-bookstall aesthetic. Book covers look out from dark walnut walls. On the glossy shelves, the wares mingle high and low culture with ease: cheeky pin-up girls stand beside Gaudi's curvy cathedral. The dichotomy between pulp and precious permeates the whole of TASCHEN's enterprise. Given both Taschen's publishing history and Starck's witty designs, the paradox is apt; the project revels in the playful juxtaposition of decadence and democracy." — Azure, Toronto, Canada
