Tour Incity - Lyon, France
Interior design project
DOP ARCHI – Pierre Axel Bouchaib
The refined design and sophisticated details of the L213 armchair blend seamlessly with the elegant and understated modern style of the Tour Incity skyscraper in Lyon's business district. Now home to the Caisse d'Épargne Rhône Alpes bank and the SNCF (French National Railway Company), it is the first tower in France with HQE - Haute Qualité Environnementale (High Environmental Quality) certification, thanks to its natural ventilation system and the fact that 95% of its rooms are lit with natural light. Spanning more than 44 thousand square meters and 200 m in height, this building is the third tallest in France and houses offices, restaurants and shared spaces. The conference room is punctuated by the colours (grey and red) of the L213s, all of which are equipped with gravity-driven tip-up seats and backrests with a multi-layered inner part and non-deformable and flame-retardant padding. The chairs, complete with inclined side panels and wooden seatback, are arranged in curved tiered rows.
