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
Kaleidoscope’s Manifesto ’22 festival is set against the unique decorum of the French Communist Party building, a modern landmark of the Parisian landscape built by Oscar Neimeyer. Transforming its mirrored dome into a ‘performative’ material, the light design of the event is programmed to heighten each live performance and create a synergetic, stroboscopic effect on the venue’s dancefloor, merging the day’s exhibit with the energy of nightlife.
