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
Silhouettes pass and cross paths at the entrance of the Jussieu campus. As they draw close to one another, pause, and follow each other in random sequences of reunion and distancing, the free-flowing movement of bodies, contrasts, and characters is led by luminous breakthroughs that delineate imaginary projections of the sun. The misty atmosphere creates the effect of a ‘déjà vu’, transposing mundane rituals into a collective daydream.
