Zumtobel sets the lighting stage for the Zaha Hadid exhibition in Paris that is showcased in a pavilion designed by the architect herself.

he exhibition “Zaha Hadid, une architecture” is currently on display inside the breathtaking structure of the Mobile Art Pavilion in Paris. Thus, the exhibition shown inside the mobile structure is dedicated to the oeuvre of the very architect who designed it.

In 2007, the pavilion, which was already on display in Tokyo, Hong Kong and New York, had been designed by Zaha Hadid for the CHANEL fashion brand. Now CHANEL donated the structure boasting a formal language of continuous fluidity to the Institut du Monde Arabe. In future, the pavilion set up in front of the Institut will be used to host exhibitions by talented artists from Arab countries.

The current exhibition of the Pritzker award winning architect will be on show until autumn. “Zaha Hadid, une architecture” displays a variety of projects and research agendas covered by Zaha Hadid Architects in the past years. Zumtobel has designed and provided a lighting solution matching the pavilion's organic look.

The colour temperature of the DALI-controllable ARCOS LED spotlights installed by Zumtobel can be continuously adjusted within the range between 2700 K and 6500 K, which ensures sophisticated accent lighting of the exhibits.

The lighting concept, which is focussed on individual points emphasising the special qualities of the pavilion's architectural structure, is enhanced by minimalist SUPERSYSTEM LED spots.
