PINAULT COLLECTION

Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec with Flos Bespoke

May 2021
Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec have filled with light the entrance, the monumental stairs and the restaurant of the Bourse de Commerce, the new contemporary museum of the Pinault Collection in Paris. The project, commissioned by François Pinault, conceived in dialogue with Jean-Jacques Aillagon and Martin Bethenod, and manufactured by Flos Bespoke, expresses the power of a dialogue between architecture and design, between history and contemporary times, developed with delicacy and respect thanks to a unique technical know-how.
17th May, 2021 - The Bourse de Commerce is the new museum of the Pinault Collection in Paris. The building embodies four centuries of architectural innovation and technical prowess. After renovation works led by Tadao Ando Architect & Associates together with the agency NeM / Niney & Marca Architectes, and the agency Pierre-Antoine Gatier, chief architect for French National Heritage, it will open this coming Saturday May 22 to the public.
Contemporary interventions on locations that are filled with history are always challenging for designers. But the lighting project that Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec developed for the Bourse de Commerce – Pinault Collection in Paris with Flos Bespoke was doubly so. On the one hand, for the exceptional nature of the space, originally conceived in the eighteenth century: with its huge glass dome, the Bourse is an absolute landmark of the French capital, an imposing building full of history. On the other hand, for the system with which Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec lighting project was supposed to interact: the reinterpretation by Tadao Ando, ​​the architect who, on other occasions and often for François Pinault, is able to transform palaces into cultural temples, with great sobriety mixed with poetry (all while providing contemporary art pieces with a powerful voice).
