Select a fluorescent color to trace a path through the exhibition Architects Furniture within the Cité de l’Architecture et du Patrimoine.

The exhibition Architects Furniture - 1960-2020 offers an opportunity to discover the furniture of architects from the 1960s to the present day and includes nearly 300 exceptional works by 125 architects and 90 publishers. This is the first time that an exhibition has traversed the entire Cité de l’Architecture et du Patrimoine, offering visitors the opportunity to rediscover its permanent collections.

Adrien Gardère’s studio has integrated silver-colored bases throughout the permanent collection and up to the library, where the objects on display interact with the space and the permanently displayed works.

To trace a path through 1000 m2 of exhibition space, we have chosen a fluorescent color that stands out and guides visitors from room to room. Each of the exhibited objects deserves a long explanatory text. We chose to place them on the steps of the pedestals in order to integrate them as much as possible without disturbing the dialogues between objects and space intended by Studio Adrien Gardère.
