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.

Light design

Conceived in collaboration with the polymorphous London-based collective Affix, this installation features a robotised sculpture whose body is composed of motorised nightclub lights. Programmed to imitate the choreography of human movement, this intelligent robot is shaped at the intersection of science and art, its contradictory nature evoking a futuristic Pinocchio, trapped in its desire to perform humanity.
