  • Commissioned for the centenary of the construction of the Metro and inaugurated on 30 October 2000, the "kiosk des Noctambules" is a work by the Visual artist Jean-Michel Othoniel located on the place Colette, in the historical center of Paris. The work revolves around 3 sides of the entrance staircase of the mouth of the Metro station Palais Royal-Musée du Louvre and is formed outside an aluminium structure formed of rings welded to each other for the bottom, and for the top , six columns in aluminium spheres supporting two domes of a set of aluminium spheres and giant Murano glass beads made by the Salviati glassware. The pearls of the dome overlooking the entrance of the staircase have warm tones (yellow, white, Parma and red) to evoke the day; those of the other dome have cold tones (Midnight blue, white, yellow, turquoise blue and violet) to evoke the night. Each of the domes is topped by a glass statuette, coloured Parma for one and ochre smoked for the other. At the back of the structure, an aluminium bench completes the work for its outer part. One finds its inner part at the bottom of the staircase: two round Windows with walls covered with aluminium, embedded in the tile of the underground wall constituted in this place of Black ceramic rectangles with Golden reflections. These showcases contain Murano pearls in warm tones for one, and in cold tones for the other, as a reminder to the two exterior domes. A very nice work on the place Colette.

  • Cute little metro stop.
  • Not really a tourist attraction, but it will make you smile nonetheless.
