But it is not only a stationery store, it is also a living museum decorated from the first floor (dedicated to everyday products and office supplies), to its terrace.
The second floor is dedicated to paper. In fact, it was the first paper store in Barcelona.
On the fourth floor you will find many different materials for fine arts, crafts, hospitality and packaging.
The novelty is that each floor has a different color and decoration.
The terrace is on the fifth floor and offers bar service. Customer exhibitions and presentations are also held there.
