Original and exclusive works have been especially designed for the venue. In terms of design, AREA 42 is filled with decorative features with a characteristically post-industrial influence.
Robotised lighting AREA 42
Peter Keene 2009
This lighting, which was especially designed for the venue, was christened AREA 42 by the English artist Peter Keene in honour of the venue.
Thanks to their integrated motor, the neon lights can be turned on request.
In AREA 2 & AREA 3, there is a variation of this lighting: pairs of neon lights fixed to a coloured base: green, red, yellow or blue.
The “Metal Madness” staircase
This sculptural 18-ton steel staircase, made purely of curves and geometrical lines, is undoubtably the venue’s unmissable artistic piece. Despite its imposing size, it shyly hides away between the building’s 2 floors. Visitors immediately see it, and can admire it in all its beauty from the top of the mezzanine.
Steel multi-coloured balustrade
This impressive work made from 100% steel is splendidly finished off by a balustrade that goes around the room on the mezzanine. The room itself overhangs a space with a double height ceiling. The balustrade is very wide and is made from coloured steel bars.
