Matière Noire is a Paris-based creative studio leading new approaches to spacial design. Built on a network of parallel disciplines, our operation cultivates ambivalence, using observational methods to ground its intuitive impulses. Matière Noire is driven by an appetite for the undefined, the hypothetical, the intangible. Its process celebrates unexpected derivations, developing them into bespoke applications of cross-cultural collaboration.

Spatial design studio
The bespoke light design of Paris’ Gare de l’Est Carbone Club features recycled LED systems with interchangeable panels and custom fixtures that decompose the site’s space. Specialized lighting effects are set on hazy light boxes that celebrate the asperities of the exposed inner-layers of the club’s concrete foundations. A the project’s zero-waste approach opens new models for the event and entertainment industry of the near future.
