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
Staged in the hollow expanse of a garage, Marcia’s FW’23 runway is conceived as a fantasized party, observed longingly from the sidelines. Slit horizontally, a built-in structure holds the audience at tense distance, creating mystery and anticipation around the incoming procession of lightly-clad night sirens. A minimal and timeless formal approach creates cinematic focus on the scene, nodding subtly to the iconic cut-outs that characterise the brand’s signature party dresses, revealing and exposing just enough to captivate the eye.
