Maio 2015Barrisol Showroom Opening

This 250 sqm privileged space is entirely dedicated to the Barrisol® Universe. In a very Deco and design spirit, the world leader in stretched ceilings came to present their latest innovations.

For the opening, on April 28 2015, Barrisol® organized an evening-event with the exceptional participation of André Manoukian who gave a private concert with singer Léna Chamamyan, in a place with perfect acoustics thanks to Barrisol® and Artolis® systems and sheets.

Barrisol® has a privileged relationship with the artist, who is also a songwriter, jazz lover and talent-spotter. André Manoukian wanted to create a place where artists could meet and compose music, at the very heart of Chamonix. He created the «Maison des Artistes» (House of Artists) in mountaineer Maurice Herzog's former residence.

The encounter between André Manoukian and Barrisol® occurred quite naturally as the musician, author and composer was looking for efficient acoustic and design solutions for his project.



Maio 2015Olivier Roller: when the faces start canvas !

The portrait photographer Olivier Roller, widely known for his work on power figures, presented an exhibition uniting volume and modernity in the Salon Carre de la Galerie des Gobelins (Elysee Palace).

His collaboration with Barrisol Normalu allowed him to add a new dimension to his project – curved shapes, printed sheets, integral lighting, a furled ribbon – the result is extraordinary!

A 15m long printed sheet at a height of 5m, the whole thing suspended on an aluminium structure made by Barrisol-Normalu, incorporating, by means of its patented system, LED bulbs to create backlighting, so forming a unique sculpture.

Another example of the technical mastery of Barrisol and its teams in the service of Olivier Roller and other creative professionals.
