    Description

    And if this Lafayette had,
    To amuse its Galleries,
    a skin so sensitive
    that each vibration of its occupants
    would set off a chill
    of millions of light dots.

    Yann Kersalé

    Permanent light installation in the event of the Galeries Lafayette centennial, for which the store is wrapped in a skin of light. Each variation of the shop sets off a shudder of thousands of LED dots that constitute an ornament resembling a Chrysalis.

    The latter will consequently light up all year round, and transform in time and following seasons…

    The department store is, in the same occasion, enhanced in light following a specific creation.
