For over ten years, Triode, located on rue Jacob, has presented a unique range of furniture and lighting, along with contemporary installations, mainly by American designers, as well as the re-editions of iconic modernist designers, most notably Finn Juhl. This eclectic yet intuitive selection that includes American Design, the re-editions of Finn Juhl, Sergio Rodrigues, and Richard Neutra, as well as a line of limited edition lighting, defines the singular vision that is Triode. Triode offers its clients a warm and friendly atmosphere and seeks to meet their needs with a personal and attentive service.
The opening of Triode was for Jacques Barret the culmination of a rich and varied career in which design, particularly furniture and lighting, have always played an essential role. With a degree in Horticultural Engineering, he actively began his career in the design world at the legendary Saint Ouen flea markets before opening his own architecture and landscaping firm, where he worked with some of the top architects in France and internationally. After writing a book, he taught at the School of Architecture and served as a consultant for the French government, before deciding to pursue his passion for design by opening the showroom in Saint Germain des Prés, a reflection of his taste and experience.
