Vegetable louvers

CNIT de la Défense in the RIE of the SNCF, Paris, 2016 / 2017

The glass façade of the restaurant is blocked by the construction of a new skyscraper. To compensate for this lack of natural light, Alexis Tricoire proposes a trompe l'oeil: louvers backlit by a powerful white light give the impression of protecting us from an intense sun. To accentuate the feeling of well-being of the restaurant's users, some slats are bent to reveal plants illuminated by a theatrical and warm light.
