La Canopeé,

Administration des Bâtiments Publics Luxembourg

La Canopeé is a sculpture designed for Lyceé Michel Lucius international school in Luxembourg. It’s a centrepiece in a minimalistic interior that is flooded with natural light. The sculpture is suspended from a skylight using four steel cables. A complimentary seating area is positioned directly underneath.

The sculpture consists of coloured glass slits, held together by a structural steel frame. The surface design plays with natural light and optics, resulting in its kinetic appearance shifting from almost translucent to a bold statement of colour.
