An Iconic Space Created by Starchitect Jean Nouvel

To create this experience space, Samsung worked with Jean Nouvel — whose groundbreaking work mirrors the remarkable spirit of Olympic and Paralympic athletes, constantly pushing boundaries of what’s possible. Inspired by Parisian salons from the Age of Enlightenment, the showcase celebrates new perspectives and possibilities. Designed with openness, harmony and connection in mind, the space is embellished with black and blue — capturing reflections of light that fleetingly appear and disappear to pique the curiosity of visitors.
