What a year it's been! Time for SUMMER BREAK! We will be closed from August 2 - September 1st, 2015.


Last year, on September 1, 2014 we got the keys to the 2 level, 230m2 empty space that would become SEYMOUR+. The ensuing 11 months have been a wild, challenging, exciting, and ultimately rewarding experience for all of us at Seymour Projects.

When we began we had no idea that this project would resonate quite so loudly with both the press and the public. We are beyond rewarded to note that people who have visited the space come away having had a very beneficial and often very profound experience. We are so thankful that the press instinctively understood the social impact of our philosophy; their numerous international articles have firmly established the SEYMOUR+ space as an innovative and groundbreaking proposition.

We wish we could name everyone who played a role in this extraordinary year, but that would be impossible. At the space we had countless conversations, listened to tons of feedback, exchanged endless ideas with so many wonderful people. At the magazine, myriad brillant minds contributed their time and talent to breathe life into this online publication of which we are so proud…


Thank you for your interest, your passion, your intellect, your generosity, your curiosity, your compassion.

Seymour Projects, Seymour Magazine and the SEYMOUR+ space belong to you.


Each aspect of our organisation is a product of collective intellect and intuition. Our founder Melissa Unger set the ‘cornerstone’,  holds the through line and guides our voice. Everyone on Team Seymour keeps our mission on track, but ultimately, the direction of our organisation’s evolution is inspired by our readers and visitors… all that we create together is for you.

Phew! WHAT. A. YEAR it’s been! Our small team is excited to step away and recharge our hearts and minds so that we can come back and collaborate with you to create increasingly useful and interesting propositions. We have tons of interesting new projects planned for the Fall. More info on all that will be available in September.

Because we are Paris-based and operate on a French schedule, both the SEYMOUR+ space and Seymour Magazine will be taking a month long break.

We will be closed from August. 2- September 1st, 2015.

We’ll be back on Sept. 1, 2015. Full circle. Key in hand, we’ll unlock the door to the space, just as we did exactly one year ago. We look forward to stepping into the future; a magnificent blank field. With you by our side, we look forward to exploring all of its possibilities.

See you then.

xx Team Seymour xx

ps: NEWS HOURS! Starting September 1st the SEYMOUR+ space will be open to the public Tuesday through Saturday from 12 Noon to 8pm. We will be closed on Sundays.
