a major manufacturer of household electronics
organised a unique expo in Paris
combining it's home appliance products with an
interactive Electronic Gallerie.
Program of the Siemens Connected Gallery (archived)
In order to discover its range of latest-generation connected household appliances,
SIEMENS imagined a digital art gallery and an exhibition
by inviting the artists Benjamin Chassagne and Pierre-Alexandre Dagba,
in partnership with AC3 STUDIO.
Three works will immerse visitors in surprising interactive experiences,
through an optical illusion in anamorphosis, a mesmerizing forest of mirrors,
and an immersive room to control the light depending on your movement speed.
This unprecedented and daring approach will be accompanied
by a tasting of pastries signed by chef Nicolas Paciello
with a tasting of coffee recipes prepared by a barista
with the SIEMENS connected espresso machine
and a demonstration of the Home Connect range of household appliances from SIEMENS.
This cultural and festive event is a true immersion in the SIEMENS universe.

Siemens History & timeline is on VB.com
A Technology Pop Up Store
with some links to Siemens
Siemens is one of the three
most famous brands from Germany.
Such a brand never arrives
by coincidence ...
The history of Cremerie de Paris is extremly old
and goes back to the year 1129.
Our two letter domain VB.com.
is an acronym for Villeroy, former merchands from the Les Halles foodmarket
that arrived in the house around 1370 and that became advisors of the Bourbons,
the Kings of France.
Over a long period of time the Vileroy children
made an ascension in the Kingdom of France
getting closely connected to the Bourbons.
1539 Nicolas III de Villeroy became secretary of a King.
1589 Nicolas IV de Villeroy became minister and advisor of the 1st Bourbon King Henri IV.
1646 grandson Nicolas V de Villeroy became the tutor of the 3rd Bourbon King, young Louis XIV,
Louis XIV spend parts of his childhoon in our house which was his "elementary school buliding"...
1671 Preparing the futur Chateau de Versailles
Louis XIV invited his childhood friends
François de Villeroy and Catherine de Villeroy
to stay with him.
VB, Hôtel de Villeroy Bourbon is sold
to become the seat of a "Hi Tech", company,
La Poste Royale.
The history of Cremerie de Paris
is not only linked to food and technology
but also to fashion
Empress Eugénie was the creative mind behind the renovation of the Les Halles foodmarket,
build after 1852 by Georges Eugène Haussmann and Victor Baltard.
during the reign of Napoléon III
Fascinated by the long history of the Hotel de Villeroy Bourbon
she asked for the axis of the future rue des Halles to be changed
to keep the royal mansion alive.
1870 Eugenie left France to live in the United Kingdom in exile.
1880 she met a little girl who lived with her grandmother Queen Victoria.
The girl, Alix Hessen became her friend. Eugenie told her all the fairytales
about a boy of the same age (young Louis XIV) that lived in twio mansion two centuries before.
To keep the stories secret they had a code "VB" for "Villeroy Bourbon".
1910 Grow up Alix lived in Russia and repeated the stories to her own children.
The children did not survive the Russian resolutions
but some cousins did,
one would later become the boyfriend of the designer Coco Chanel
another one the babysitter tof today's Cremerie de Paris.
One of the many mysteries of the past is the question whether Werner von Siemens (1816-1892),
founder of the brand has been to Cremerie de Paris ...
He created Simens in 1847.
The links between Siemens and the city of Paris are very old.
1881 Siemens build a tramway between the nearby place de la Concorde to the Palais de l'Industrie
(today Petit Palais on the Champs Elysees).
It is impossible Werner von Siemens has not visited the magnificant Pavillons Baltard
facing Cremerie de Paris.
Has he been inside Cremerie de Paris like Alexander Graham Bell ?
1982 july the editor of this article, still a teenager,
had the chance to find himself "in the heart of the history of Siemens".
Walking with a friend, Clemens Steding, through the park
of Schloss Schleissheim in the north of Munich.
during a reception given by Honoré Wamsler.
Clemens Steding (1964 - 2001) started a conversation
with Peter von Siemens (1911 - 1986)
a conversation which amused the president of Siemens.
Von Siemens enjoyed explaing the plants walking around the park
and left us his business card ...
At that time the editor of this article would not dare to imagine
that one day we would host a magical Siemens Expo
not in Munich but in Paris.
1986 Today's Cremerie de Paris started at N°2
opening a little telephone shop
At the dawn of the internet we had the chance to operate the very first Internetcafe in Paris
which made it possible to get the iconinc two letter domain VB.com
maching ther fairytales of the past.
1997 The first Sony mobile phones sold at the Boutique, Sony CM-DX 1000
were manufactured by Siemens, a variant of the Siemens S 4.
1999 The phone shop was leading to the Phone Book of the World.
and the other Cremeries de Paris.
2012 Cremerie de Paris hosted the first word class Pop Up Store,
a Nike Barbershop
2016 Cremerie de Paris had the chance
to meet the famous agency Extreme Events
for the organisation of a Starbucks Pop Up Store.
2017 Preparing the Siemens kitchen
Cremerie de Paris was lucky to discover
a chimney flue closed for over half a century
making it possible to now host major cooking events
without disturbing the neighborhood with kitchen odors.
1878 the QWERTY keybord was invented by
by Christopher Sholes (1819 - 1890).
Maybe Christopher also wanted to contribute
to the glamour
of Cremerie de Paris
placing the letter "V" right next to "B"
