Meltem Etcheberry grew up between Ankara and Zürich. After a first international experience in Zurich – Somer Design Innenarchitektur and a study at Centre Français de la Couleur in Paris, she created her own agency – Archipol in Istanbul, which allowed her to understand how loyalty is key for suppliers to achieve beautiful spaces and how we can do great things with respect, humility, and kindness …
This is an unforgettable client and supplier relationship experience!
She then drew inspiration from her son, and created “Etincelle” (a Spark), educational games store for children, to note the strong educational challenge of childhood for human construction. From small, one learns and respects the value and the beauty of things, self-objects around, nature … Patience, empathy and pedagogy will be her keywords.
This is a true coaching and savoir vivre!
Since 1991, she regularly publishes articles on trends, life style, decoration in magazines, gives lectures at Esmod Vakko and writes articles notably about innovation and diversity.
This is a privileged exchange!
Back to Paris to follow her husband. Curious, bold, and visionary, she decided to live a complementary experience by accepting the position of Manager Retail and Concept Store Design & Visual Merchandising at L’Occitane en Provence, La Vallée Village and Van Cleef & Arpels. She discovers the political and strategic organizations, working in project mode and management internationally and brings her expertise in architecture with a network of over 3,000 points of sale and exhibitions. These experiments showed her the importance of diversity for innovation and that of opening her senses, her experiences to others, to live in harmony …
This is an exciting challenge and a discovery!
In infinite quest to learn, deepen, and make progress, she works as consultant (ETCHE & BERRY – A small wink to her husband, from Basque Country / Etche: House & Berry: New) and working joyfully with partners on concepts she has developed:
Retail 360° – Forum International Performance & Well-Being and Sensory & Delighted Architecture for Well-Being in Retail – 3D.
This is a happy ending journey… a mission with plenty of transmission!
