French architects studio TVK & Tolila+Gilliland just unveiled a new cultural block in Paris (Clichy-Batignolles area) : Seven-theater cinema with cultural space, community center with concert space and dance studios, 342 residential units, a shared garden, bespoke artwork, and retail space.  Three residential buildings offering exceptional views of the great Parisian landscape anchor three corners of a mixed-use block. At the heart of the project is a cultural center for the new ZAC Clichy- Batignolles district in Paris’ 17th arrondissement: a seven-theatre cinema and a community center. These public volumes, anchored to the ground, give way to the public realm and are crowned with hanging gardens. Three residential blocks emerge from this base, climbing up to 50 meters. This simple distribution of masses effectively resolves the inscription of a complex program on a high-density site. (more…)

Very keen on art and new technologies, they decide to combine these two worlds and put art at our feet through a trompe l’oeil effect on parquet floorboards: the Illusion Collection was born.

Tom Hancocks‘s LOOP lamp for Atelier de Troupe was inspired by the California design firm’s existing ethos, says Tom, conveying classical design, while still feeling recognizable and contemporary. ”The design process was smooth and stimulating, as I didn’t have to defer much from the continued sculptural studies of my own work – basic Euclidean point, line, and form relationships. But figuring out how to make sure it expressed the same functionality and personality of the other pieces it would be presented with. And most importantly, creating something I would want in my own living space.


Based in Los Angeles, Atelier de Troupe is a creative studio founded by former film-set designer Gabriel Abraham. Since 2011, he has summarized the imaginary décor of the 20th century, creating lamps and furniture with an immediately evocative power.  Atelier de Troupe conceives modern antiques with timeless charm, diving into the grammar of Bauhaus, of 60s Italian cinema or of French decorative spirit.

The Globe Series by Emil Thorup for Handvark was inspired by the Bauhaus movement, where form follows function and The Globe Series embraces every element in a lighting fixture. Where many other designs go to great lengths to hide the electrical cord, the cords are a piece of the design, adding a much anticipated organic and feminine touch to the black coated steel frame and the balancing mouth blown grey glass globes. As a family of both a chandelier and floor lamp, the Globe Series is a versatile lighting series for both residential and commercial use. (more…)



After l’Alcazar and the brasserie d’Auteuil, Laura Gonzalez calls once again upon the savoir faire of the Ateliers Zelij for the decoration of La Gare, a 600m2 restaurant of Mediterranean and Latin inspiration, found in the reconverted Passy-la-Muette station in the Paris 16th district. Opened to travellers in 1864, the station connected the Gare Saint-Lazare to Auteuil via the old Petite Ceinture railroad. (more…)



For their 2019 collection, Atelier de Troupe plunges into 70′s Neo-Noir Hollywood. Gabriel Abraham, a former set designer, imagines Coda chair and Nuage Z lighting for a character in the likes of Philip Marlowe in Robert Altman‘s “The Long Goodbye”. Chromed tubular forms woven with leather or fused with glass compose a captivating and elegant collection, creating a nostalgic cocktail, A de T’s manifest since 2012. (more…)
