ELECTRIC By Mathieu Lehanneur In Paris
Designed by Mathieu Lehanneur, in collaboration with architect Ana Moussinet, ELECTRIC has opened up a new world to the lover of all things music, food and fun.
Mathieu Lehanneur is a French designer who is on the forefront of international design scene; he is also one of the few in his generation to use his talents in a variety of areas, beyond furniture. Innovatively, he combines design, science,
art and technology as poetic-communicative components to achieve maximum welfare for human beings. Air, water, sound and light are his favorite work materials.
ELECTRIC was born in order to be able to raise some exceptional noise for all great events. With its mixing console with ballroom views over Paris, lounge interspersed with soundproofed modules, Led lights and the flexibility to be interpreted into anything desired through video projections with an infinite number of layouts, this penthouse is the venue to be. With its restaurant to enjoy lunch in and a setting to lounge around in on the Tom Dixon, Martino Gamper, Versus and many other design brand furniture, this is a venue which can take you right through to night time where the fun stops at dawn.
The interiors possess a great sculptural character consisting of patterned glazing, PVC coating dihedrons, padded spi canvas and lacquered wood, giving out an energy of constant movement; a movement that can be interpreted as both calm or indeed erratic - based on the ambience of the event. Of course, the most dominant features are the fiberglass trees scattered around the area that bestow a certain sense of earthy modernity. With the projecting lights that symbolize their branches, there is something very natural about these unnatural fixtures.
