Luceplan is the technical lighting partner for the Twist project by Studio Odile Decq in Paris. The protagonists are the Pétale acoustic suspension lamps, applied as a crucial feature of the building’s architectural design.
The TWIST project, entirely by the architect and designer Odile Decq, is “an office space designed as a landscape,” in the architect’s own words. The completely transparent and slightly recessed façade offers a glimpse of the building’s vertical winter gardens, as well as the normal activities and movements of a company at work.
Luminous and acoustic comfort is transformed from an auxiliary consideration to a fundamental characteristic of the design, meaning that the suspension lamps are utilized in all the shared spaces and office as true suspended ceiling elements. Rather than representing an added option following the definition of the spaces and their uses, the suspension lamps are thus a basic feature of the architectural project from the outset.
Pétale has an organic form that conceals the magic of silence inside: the body of the lamp, covered in white fabric, is composed of a sound-absorbing panel that improves acoustic comfort inside spaces.
In the Twist project, undreds Pétale lamps in the circular version have been installed, contributing to make this a truly innovative architectural design, not just from the outside, but above all as it is experienced from the inside.
