The space devoted to trends in Colour, Materials, Lighting
The Going Green! Exhibition is inspired by the dominant place that nature needs to take in the upgrading or construction of living spaces in today’s towns. Designed by Agnès Larnicol, colour and materials designer, and Thema Design, Going Green! offers 3 distinct zones, 3 lines of thinking and applications reflecting this theme:
The Colours Zone: re-greening (nature in the town)
Nature can find a place in the urban environment thanks to a colour, a range that takes nature and the cycle of the seasons into account. The Zoom color chart will express these colours.
The Materials Zone: enhancing, recycling, reusing
The choice of materials for a project is important because they will be the last that is left of it. How can the environmental footprint of materials be limited? Eco-materials (terracotta, stoneware, tadelakt tiles) and recycled materials (recycled concrete, composite wood....) will be displayed.
The Lighting Zone: renovating
Faced with the costs and problems of producing energy, how can the consumption of old buildings be reduced? How can they be renovated to improve their energy performance? Lighting has made a start with low consumption lights (LEDs, optic fibres, TBT...). How can energy efficiency be emphasized? Lighting will be featured in a darkened area.
For the next monochrome urban walk scheduled for the spring of 2012, SoS. Retine offers for Zoom Color, in partnership with Thema Design a reflexion around Green theme.
