Nearly a year after opening, Lambert & Fils’ Tribeca Showroom is finally able to welcome the public for New York Design Week. To celebrate the occasion, Lambert & Fils have created bespoke candles using recently developed extrusions; filling the space with ambient light. Paired with Atelier Zébulon Perron’s mirrored and metal structures, Palais des Glaces breaks the barriers of our perceptions, inviting visitors to relinquish control and see themselves in a new light.
By taking inspiration from the ubiquitous scaffolding scattered throughout the streets of New York, Atelier Zébulon Perron acknowledges the city as it creates an “architecture within architecture,” stretching the boundaries of the showroom.
People can catch a furtive glimpse of each other as they discover the installation. “The idea is to alter spatial perceptions. We work by creating a universe within this perceived space. We create a language through reflection, testing the threshold through the symmetry of mirrors. It’s all a bit voyeuristic,” says Zébulon Perron.
Friends since adolescence, Samuel Lambert of Lambert & Fils and Zébulon Perron of Atelier Zébulon Perron are also long-time professional collaborators. For Palais des Glaces, the two wanted to create an event in which they could push and explore the limits of space, light, and reflection.
