OBEY Galeries Lafayette Haussmann

Shop in Shop with moiré center piece

Haussmann Boulevard | Paris
2021

For OBEY we created a calm canvas with a Giant Eyes center piece that relates both to the Parisien atmosphere as to Street Culture. The use of materials is simple; glazed ceramics, steel- and woodwork in Ral 9001 creme weiss and a marmoleum flooring. It was a pleasure inviting artists Eva van Essen for ceramic objects and Andries de Marez Oyens for helping our with the moiré effect. 
The 1,4 by 2,2 m moiré Of The Giant Face changes in its appearing with every step that is made passing it in the Galerie. In this way it has a subtile and serene impact at his passenger travelling within the crowded and chaotic feel of its surroundings.
