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
A sensual twist on traditional show design, the runway presentation of Ottolinger’s SS’22 collection subverts the bourgeois decorum of a Parisian apartment, wrapping benches and curtains in translucent, skin-toned latex. The soft, diffused lighting merges with dashes of sunlight, deepening the event’s voluptuous atmosphere.
