The Mistral highlighted by LM5P
The designer Gianni FASCIANI tells us about his work at the Club Le Mistral in Aix-en-Provence.
“This mythical club now boasts artistic references, offering spectacular visual and scenic performances.
I wanted something more than just music on a dance floor… I did something new, I made sets with masterpieces.
I designed an atmosphere with Art-deco vocabulary: order, colour and geometry. A “rich” decoration and a “pure” design with individual style variations of nude bodies and reproductions of pictorial works by Toulouse-Lautrec and Michelangelo. A geometrical, floral, highly stylised repertoire, stained glass windows of silhouettes and figures inlaid in old mirrors… All the motifs are regularly repeated with a constancy which certainly contributes to the unity of the style, but also ends up making the whole thing stunning”.
