Tell me about the projection mapping?

The projection equipment offers different visual effects and presentation styles, depending on the requirements of your event. You may choose from:

- The former industrial foundry: sophisticated lighting highlights the venue’s architecture with its nineteenth-century metal structure.

- The screening of current immersive digital exhibitions: offer your guests an opportunity to embark on an exceptional journey that takes them into the heart of the world of painting. Masterpieces by the great masters of the history of art are brought to life, accompanied by music, on more than 3,300 m2 of projection surface. Total duration: 50 minutes.

- A catalog of still and/or animated ambiances: choose from among a selection of ambiances related to the exhibition’s theme or other themes (the former foundry, a plant-based ambiance, the rooftops of Paris, etc).

- Custom Projections: project a video that has been specifically created for your event onto the walls of the Hall des Lumières. Our approved service providers are at your disposal to help you to create an entirely personalized video: the creation of a synopsis, the scenography and animation of your media (photos, videos, sound, etc.), and the musical soundtrack.
