The Entrance Lobby at La Seine Musicale

9 Million Iridescent Tiles

Nine million Bisazza mosaic tiles decorate the dome and foyer of La Seine Musicale auditorium recently opened in Paris, designed by architect Shigeru Ban, winner of the 2014 Pritzker Prize.

Inspired by the wings of Japanese beetles, the mosaic tiles, produced specifically for the new cultural centre, have an iridescent surface that changes from red to green depending on the angle of the light.

Located on Seguin Island in the western suburbs of Paris, the striking 4,000 seat, multi-purpose hall is surrounded by an enormous, triangular solar panel ‘sail’ that follows the path of the sun, providing power to the complex.
