Groupama, the owner of one of the twelves Maréchaux hotels, located on the 7 Tilsitt street, 17th district of Paris, wanted to invite an artist to enhance the court of honor, as part of the enhancement of its asset in collaboration with Anne Charlet and Volume ABC.
The artist Vincent Mauger and Métalobil took this opportunity to collaborate again.
Vincent Mauger says: «In a very stylized way, the structure evokes a vegetal form as a virgin grapevine, an ivy or a wisteria.».
It is composed of 178 aluminum tubes, 383 aluminum and mirror polished stainless steel scales.
Métalobil research department realized all technical studies (sizing, operating weight, wind and snow calculations, stress of joints, etc.). Métalobil workshop realized then the prototypes in order to demonstrate those calculations and to assist client in its choices, before manufacturing the structure and install it in its environment.
