Entry Description

Installed in the heart of a famous parisian pastry, the “Marquise” neon reveals the dialogue between the generous heritage of the old pastries and his contemporary, a gourmet and punchy vision.
The lighting design is the bridge between these universes. It highlights the patrimony of the craftsman and the modernity of the new gastronomy.
Inspirations were the ones of a parisian hotel particulier, a large elegant and gourmet house, full of taste and emotion.
The Marquise neon, the main gesture of light in space, refers to the splendor of the beginning of the last century. Coupled with the vertical mirror coating, its half unfolds there. Pretending to be one, the original and its reflection enlarge the space and reveal a pop and arty flower.
This strong identity is visible from outside, welcoming the customer from the street.
The production took one week and the installation in situ took two days.
Altough the model “Marquise” is an efficient reproductive item through the pastry store chain around the world, is staying also available on demand for private customer.
