Le Cabinet de curiosités
(contemporain) de Thomas Erber
Le Cabinet de Curiosités of Thomas Erber travels the world on the lookout for talented designers and daring brands, characterized by their unique expertise as well as their independence.
In the worlds of fashion, jewelry, watchmaking, design, art, travel, music, literature and eroticism, his desire is to:
- – Create an international network of designers, artists and brands who, by their cutting-edge savoir-faire and insight, seek to redefine our dangerously standardized society.
- – Redefine luxury by offering exclusive pieces, in single or very limited edition, cultural news and startling adventures to all those following his wanderings and current projects,
- – Engage curious people first and foremost, of all nationalities, of all ages and for whom luxury is not tied to a price but rather to a story, a lifestyle and a certain savoir-faire.

Thomas Erber created his Cabinet de Curiosités with a firmly contemporary vision. After working in media for the last fifteen years exploring new trends and creations, traveling the world in search of unheard of places and emerging movements, he now covers all the fields of the lifestyle he is passionate about. These include fashion, accessories, jewelry, premium watchmaking, shoes, design, pop art, as well as travel, music and eroticism.
Le Cabinet de Curiosités of Thomas Erber heralds a vision of luxury, which concentrates on true "know-how" rather than a "know-how-to-sell". His guests, whose talents are recognized worldwide, are therefore independent actors claiming their independence as the driving force of their creation. About forty artists are involved each year and create unique pieces especially for this occasion, demonstrating and glorifying their savoir-faire.
Le Cabinet de Curiosités is also a journey with photographers- whom Eber has met through his work in music and collaborations, and musicians who will perform a private concert on the opening night. In parallel to the event, a range of extensions are created such as the exhibition catalogue, which acts as a milestone for the entire project.
In essence: this exhibition is a life-size curiosity wringing the neck of luxury’s rampant standardization and the common preconceptions that lead us to believe that everything must look the same to exist…
The first edition of Le Cabinet de Curiosités of Thomas Erber took place in December 2010 at colette in Paris; the 2011 edition at Browns in London; the 2012 edition at Andreas Murkudis in Berlin. The fourth edition will be held this December in New York at the Maison Kitsuné store and NoMad Hotel.
