Aubrilam fits out the Roland Garros site!20 May 2019 - New project
The qualifying matches for the French Open have begun, and this year Roland Garros will have a brand new setting to welcome the world’s top players.
Started by the French Tennis Federation (FFT) in 2015, the upgrade, which is due for completion in 2021, follows a blueprint based on complete renovation of the site. Opening out into the city, greening of urban spaces, user comfort, visual consistency… Today we are already beginning to see a new environment which echoes the latest trends in exterior design.
Aubrilam has been retained to fit out the paths and entrances of the sports facilities:
Dôme XL columns between 4 and 8m high, fitted with BEGA floodlights arranged in clusters and tapering to a metal spike, provide dynamic lighting and act as vertical visual markers. The wooden parts are enhanced with our new shade “La Mer” and they blend seamlessly into the site, subtly accentuating the roadways.
To support the user experience, 5 customised signage columns have been developed in partnership with the Empreinte Signalétique company. They mark out the space while remaining true to Roland Garros’ emblematic colours and charter.

Colours and materials at the Carreau du Temple in ParisApril 26 2019 - Event
Aubrilam was at the Materials & Light exhibition for the first time, on April 24 & 25 at the Carreau du Temple, in Paris. In this unique industrial architectural framework from the 19th century, we were glad to present our new products to the whole profession.
Among the exhibited products, our visitors were able to discover :
/ The Rendez-Vous furniture, with its comfortable and friendly sun lounger,
/ The Club furniture, the original and colorful “urban lounge”
/ La Mer column, with its “old rustic wood” finishing, specially developed in our workshop,
/ The IDO bench, dreamed up by the designer Anna Szonyi, which was once again very successful thanks to its originality.
Thanks to everyone who came and visited us at the Aubrilam stand!
What colours are trending this year ?April 19 2019
Here’s what’s hot for 2019 in furniture and decoration colours.
Green is the favourite shade at the start of the year. It’s in all the design products, interior and exterior alike. It harks back to plants, it’s modern and ever present in the city, it represents a new kind of nature that architects and landscape gardeners showcase in their projects bringing more humanity.
Mathilde, designer at Aubrilam, talks to us about how colour can stir feelings:
“We like these dense, dark greens that transport us into the heart of the forest, other lighter and slightly greyer shades like sage green make for a soothing atmosphere.”
The second shade in the spotlight is pink. It blends perfectly with green, but can also be teamed up with darker shades, according to Mathilde, pink softens and poetise spaces.
Finally, the third shade we’ve chosen for this year is that evoking the earth: “terracota”. You’ll also see it in “rust” with randomly subtle effects to achieve the look of materials shaped by time. It will be combined with natural materials such as raw wood.
These new shades will bring a unique touch to new urban projects to enhance spaces for one-of-kind, vibrant vibe.
