London consultancy Research Studios has completed work on Citadium, a new sports shop in Paris.

Earlier this year Research Studios, founded by Neville Brody in 1994, set up a base in Paris to work on accounts such as Jean Paul Gaultier Parfums.

The consultancy’s biggest undertaking to date, Citadium is a massive, four-storey retailer covering 9000m2 in the heart of Paris, selling all sorts of sporting goods, from underwater watches to snowboards.

Brody was art director for the project, creating a modern, congenial environment in which to display some 250 brands.

Brody worked on Citadium in association with Parisian company Architral.

Research Studios has two other affiliated wings – Research Arts, which specialises in film work, and Research Publishing, which designs websites and publishes CD-roms.
