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
Designed as a study of time, of its footprint and its effects, this scenography reinterprets the codes of research, archaeology and classification. Exploring a series of tableaux imagined as "excavation sites", visitors are confronted with an inventory of the erosion of our collective digital past. Blending organic materials and technology, warping temporalities, the scenography displays time capsules of the future, drawing out primitive relationships between contemporary artefacts and ancient relics.
