Set within Les Halles, once a food market made famous by Émile Zola and now a shopping mall facing major reconstruction, L’Exception is a concept boutique gathering together the work of the finest French fashion designers in the heart of Paris.
Atmospheric, Cosy and Contemporary Environment
One of Lithuania’s most popular café chains, Huracán is a young, enthusiastic company that’s passionate about perfect coffee, the customer experience, and supporting the farmers and families it works with. For one of its Vilnius branches, the team sought to create an atmospheric, cosy and contemporary environment that reflected these values – somewhere visitors would enjoy spending time sipping the city’s finest, responsibly sourced coffee.
Natural. Modern. Light and ecological. The architect’s vision for a wood-furnished yet bright space required a complementary ceiling solution; an industrial mesh look. Using MESH RB55 Black, suspended on exposed 24mm grid, the team lent the space a light, characterful air, while integrating the systems, services and equipment necessary for the café to function. And, fitting with the café’s values, the Cradle to Cradle Certified® Silver system means its ceiling shares the same commitment to sustainability and social responsibility.
