The electric part of Electric Paris, a day and night venue designed by Mathieu Lehanneur in collaboration with architect Ana Moussinet, is a tree whose branches provide sound and light to the guests beneath it.

Electric is a new "cultural platform" situated in a 1,000 square meter penthouse in Paris with a central feature consisting of a canopy of sound and light suspended from black tree-like columns formed from what looks like braided electrical wire.

"If Alice in Wonderland had liked rock this is where she would have spent her days and nights..." says Lehanneur.

Electric also has a lounge interspersed with soundproofed modules, an 80 square meter terrace, a space equipped with a mixing console whose ballroom floor provides a new vista of Paris, "integrating the ring road as a perpetually moving graphic foreground facing the metal mesh of the Eiffel Tower."
