It is difficult to remain indifferent when you step into a space touched by the creative force of the renowned interior designer Jean de Lessard.
The fish store Némeau located in Montreal, isn’t an exception of this rule and was inspired by the adventure novel by Jules Verne, Twenty thousand leagues under the sea.
The white stylized coolers, covered with asymmetric glasses, resemble graceful glass boxes that hide precious jewelry. They can be filled with ice or water to keep the lobsters fresh for a long time.
The magic of the sea world is illustrated by the sculptural glass installed on the ceiling, which through the prismatic form and tones represents the breaking of light onto the seabed. These shapes descend along the entire height of the wall, forming a system of shelves.
The gray ceiling represents a subtle reflection on the floor. White-gray tiles are set in a way that remind of wooden boards from a boat deck. In this dynamic and minimalist space, the combination of horizontal and vertical lines and transparency resemble the sea world.
