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
Imagined by artist Remy Brière, the set design of Courrèges’ SS’24 runway presentation is an entropic stage that takes after the strategies of Land Art, its brittle
form echoing the clashing encounter of Mind and Nature. In this sculptural framework, each passing stride carves its own, accidental imprint on virgin land, fissuring an infinite path forward. From a bright light box that floods the cubic scene, streams of light emerge gradually, delineating the jagged road left behind. Flashes of artificial sunlight close the show, emphasising the cinematic intentions of the collection.
