The Wilfrid-Pelletier Room Lobby Carpets

Place des Arts, Montreal, 2011

A carpet that is an event in and of itself? That’s one way to describe the new carpet in the foyer of the Jean-Duceppe Theatre at the Place des Arts. The pattern suggests a crowd’s movement and creates the effect of depth through the juxtaposition of shadows. Upon closer inspection, one can even hear the “hubbub of people out on the town.” This red carpet won the Grand Prix du Design 2011 in the surface category. CGA applied the same ingenuity – only in blue – to redesigning the men’s bathrooms in the Salle Wifrid-Pelletier. Strong concepts are responsible for the quality of these projects and how they harmonize with their setting and the character of the venue.
