Musée des Arts décoratifs

Our concept is to heighten the visitors’ senses and perceptions by creating a sequence in organizing the different exhibition areas. First impressions are critical, starting with the grand entrance hall where lighting enhances a custom installation by Architect Sylvain Dubuisson. The special installation in the main hall respects the Louvre’s historic architecture, at the same time showcasing the contemporary direction of the French decorative arts.
