This 560m², two-story structure, located in Paris`s Marais district, will feature contemporary furniture and designer objects represented by Giulio Cappellini. The sinuous design of the lighting system accompanies the movement of the visitor and functions as an intermediary between the architecture and the displayed object. In contrast, the skylight`s multilayered lighting system, combining natural and artificial light, diffuses a “gray luminosity” and renders it into an architectural element in itself. The project achieves a museum-like quality.
