Le Lido, Paris

Being commissioned by this iconic Parisian venue to add a signature piece to their new fit out is a true honour for a non-french creative studio, and the result is an application of GMS’s ceramic hexagonal tile that shows the concept in its best and truest form.  Combining geometric gradients with bold graphics the high gloss golden tile is angled facing in different directions so that the pattern work is shown purely through the light and movement surrounding the wall.

Visitors to the club have long pose in front of their entrance for photographs that tick a box in the list of to-do’s for the Parisian tourist, and the new wall creates a truly striking backdrop for visitors to remember the club and all the showy glitz and glamour that go with it.

As is always the case with the studio’s work, the tiles were painstakingly assembled by hand in their studio space in Hoxton, East London where teams of artists and creatives come together to assemble each individual piece to create this large-scale composition and generate the imagery within the surface.
