FRENCH PAVILION, EXPO 2020 DUBAÏ

Lumière, Lumières

We are in charge of the art direction for the lighting for the French Pavilion for the Universal Expo Dubai 2020: “Lumière, Lumières”.

 

Our project is aimed at displaying a seamless sensation of light from the outside court to the scenography inside. The Pavilion gives a continuous, immersive experience favourable for daydreaming.

 

Matter and light merge: the building quivers, breathes and undulates. The façade becomes a skin shaken by a shiver.

 

This immersive experience offers a dreamlike narrative to the 25 million expected visitors.
