an immersive light installation in the metro
When it was first created in 1983, the Lille metro was the symbol of the future: automatic, accessible, fast and reliable. Since then, its station have aged and lost its appeal.
How can we rekindle the wonder of its beginnings? How can we modernize and reintegrate futuristic, playful and even magical elements into its architecture?
We built and set up 3 light installations to enchant passengers in their commute, brightening the existing architecture of the République Beaux-Arts station. The use of colored light spruced up the space, adding cheer and a sense of security.
