Lizybiz – launched and designed by Paul Coudamy

April 30, 2014

Paul Coudamy has landed the new Parisian showroom for the style and textile design agency Lizybiz. With 170m2 to play with in one of the capital’s classic 19th century buildings, this young French architect has met the needs of a studio exclusively devoted to textiles.The Volatiliz ceiling light design looks like an inverted forest, a field of grass descending from the ceiling at varying heights to create a continuous layer undulating in the space.Suspended on lacquered panels, 2.6km of fibreglass stems were required to compose the showroom ceiling light covering a total of 20m².The furniture design is based on a triangular structure.” Visually the profile is extremely refined yet it remains very stable and solid. This design enables the section approaching the ground to be slimmer. The furniture hovers, resting on its ultra-slim feet like insect legs.”Reduced to a bare minimum the rails on wheels disappear behind the clothes and fabrics with a double configuration, presenting both a front and side view. The tables designed in three sections enable many configurations: straight, curved, split up into three parts or L-shaped suitable for presentations and work sessions.The thickness of the table surface is not obvious due to it being partially bevelled. The feet that narrow as they approach the ground reinforce the feeling of lightness and floating. This disconcerting finesse contrasts with the solidity of the broad white top.The partition in the main space is like an angular slanting form. Once in the reception area visitors notice this mysterious shape, a geometrical rock displaying coloured threads.The structure fully opens and provides storage on the other side. Lastly, the company archives are at the heart of the workspace. Samples become an architectural material highlighting the lightness of the ceiling.
