EssilorLuxottica

/ An essential and elegant space, devoted to functionality and openess

The headquarters of EssilorLuxottica in Paris, occupyi an entire floor of a Haussmann building in the heart of the city.

The interior design project aims at creating an exclusive workspace for the company that merges the two world leaders in the eyewear sector. The spaces reflect the new group's values that take shape in a search for balance between people's well-being, respect for the environment, ethics and relationship transparency.

The rooms are elegant and simple and are geared towards by functionality and reception.

Developing horizontally, the layout features large open spaces and meeting rooms arranged along the outer section to take advantage of the plentiful natural lighting. Transparency, simplicity, elegance and great comfort thus characterise the bright offices, thanks also to the carefully planned facilities and acoustics.

The boardroom hosts the custom-designed meeting table, all participants can interact and see the room's high-tech screens. Outlining a sinuous curved shape, the surface's Canaletto walnut finish extends along the table's outer side following the wood's characteristic grain and lending the environment a sense of dynamism and elegance. The technological luminous ceiling follows the shape of the table, lighting the entire work surface uniformly.

The area housing the workstations is equipped with lighting concealed within grooves in the false ceiling and consists of linear lights and spotlights managed by an advanced technological system.

The simple furniture is characterised by attention to detail and materials, in response to the client's desire for sober, comfortable and balanced elegance.

The offices feature an area for food preparation, in support of board activities, with a steel kitchen equipped for professional use.
