Parisian Disco

La Maîtresse de la Tour Eiffel
  • Thanks to Herr Jaapmans I found out about Michel de Broin’s installation ‘La Maîtresse de la Tour Eiffel’.

    For the occasion of the Nuit Blanche Festival, De Broin made the largest mirror ball ever to render the starry sky of Paris. His atmospheric structure was suspended from a construction crane 50 meters above Jardin du Luxembourg and transformed public space in the French capital into a dreamy nightclub.

    “The spectacular view of the starry sky has long been a source of delight and curiosity, but the abundance of artificial light in urban areas produces a glow that covers the stars in the firmament.” The disco ball counts 7.5 meters in diameter, and De Broin used 1,000 mirrors to build it.
