Les Fontaines des Champs-Élysée

After Nuage, the pergola realised in 2017 in the heart of Miami Design District, Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec have been invited to create a new site-specific installation at the Champs-Élysée, in Paris.

Inaugurated on March 21st, six kinetic structures characterised by an airy and geometric architecture emerge from the historical fountains, redefining the urban aesthetic of the French capital in a contemporary way. The installations consist of a central bronze pole, from which a series of crystal branches radiate, provided by a special mechanism that permits a circular motion whenever they get hit by the wind.

The designers collaborated with Atelier blam Lemunier & Meyer, a Nantes-based studio specialised in outdoor engineering and architectural solutions, and Swarovski, with whom it has been possible to develop a shock-proof crystal, able to endure atmospherical agents and pollution.
