Architect and urban designer, Dominique Perrault rose rapidly to international fame by winning various competitions, including the design for the Bibliothèque Nationale de France in 1989, the Olympic velodrome and a swimming pool in Berlin in 1992. In 2004, he began surpervising the project for the Piazza Garibaldi underground station in Naples.
He is currently working on a series of internationally important urban projects, including expansion of the European Court of Justice in Luxembourg and the building of the Olympic Tennis Stadium in Manzanares Park in Madrid.
Whatever the size of the project, Dominique Perrault’s buildings tend to transform the architectural landscape with simple forms, reduced to a minimum. His work in furnishings and lighting is not decoration focused: it is a true continuation of his architecture.
Together with Gaëlle Lauriot-Prévost, artistic and model director at Perrault’s studio, they designed the techno outdoor lamps V-Light and V-Mast for FontanaArte, which can be used both in the home and as urban furnishings.
