Rue Muller

Splendens Factory

Rue Muller, once a quiet, small street of Paris 18th Arrondissement has recently become home to a vibrant, creative community under Splendens’s growing influence in the neighborhood. More than just a flagship for Splendens’s cultural activism it reveals the creative spirit of an area full of creative resources thanks to 4 already iconic landmarks. Splendens is currently working on recreating a similar dedicated hub in Brooklyn, New York.

Maison Muller

Splendens

« La Maison Muller » is a quite atypical venue on 3 levels with total surface of 350 square meters ie ca 3,800sqft. Fully furnished and decorated in a rather motley and eccentric way by its landlord, the venue celebrates the atmosphere of Cabinets of Curiosities. The “Maison” is regularly booked for shootings and private or public events of all kinds.

Silver Clash

Splendens

Next to “Maison Muller” the “Silver Clash” studio is home to 2 photo studios: a 100 square meter – 1,000+ sqft – studio with a 25 square meter – 270 sqft- cyclo and professional lighting equipment; and a 40 square meter – 430 sqft – studio with natural lighting and white paper background. A photo editing studio is also accessible on the second floor and studio can be booked by the day as well as by the hour.

Le Rosie

Splendens

“Le Rosie” bar was Adrien Moisson’s, Nicolas Ullmann’s and Julien Labrousse’s initiative to create an iconic bar in Paris’s 18th district that would leave any idea of arrogance at the door. Largely open on the street the venue offers a great and comfortable space to chill thanks to a retro Parisian décor and inclusive architecture.

"Le Blue" Club

Splendens

Open since June 2013, “Le Blue” is Paris 18th Arrondissement one and only arty night club. Prior to its opening it drew a large crowd of curious and adventurous souls during the month of May 2013 for “Construction”, a special exhibtion by the artists of the Splendens Factory.
