The Underworld Cabaret is an underground space that is located on the last level of the building. Following the ascent of the stairs, we discover an intimate and surprising space.
The ascent between the exterior and interior entrance of the cabaret on the top floor acts as a transition zone between the public environment of the street and the underground atmosphere of cabaret. This interior progression is reflected on the outside of the building, thus visually linking these two entries.
The luminous installation becomes a reflection of the underground atmosphere as well as a signal sent to transmit its presence and its inner activity. The light is filtered by an assemblage of perforated plates, which reflect the light on their immediate environment. The lighting changes during the evening in its intensity and in its color variation.
The reflection of light on the plates, which filters the projected light, suggests a three-dimensional effect. This effect changes depth depending on the angle of view. The underground atmosphere is palpable as much during the day by its brutal metallic visual components as well as at night by the perception of this light trying to escape the semi-filtering metal shell.
