TOUR MONTPARNASSE

" La Parisienne "

Our night vision of this iconic tower in the Parisian skyline is like a light ripple. It is a dialogue with the building skin – moving between transparency, translucency and opacity, imitating dappled sunlight as reflected on the surface of water.

The skyscraper thereby guides the Parisian nightlife and resonates with the sky above the city. While elegant and peaceful by day, it gets extravagant on certain nights of the year.
 

Components such as the hanging gardens or the external elevators are dynamic, glowing markers that present themselves to the city. The tower becomes a signal on a scale befitting the capital.

In this space where ambient and functional lights become one, the passers-by are invited to wander around in a bright, warm and inviting atmosphere to discover Paris under a brand new light.
