Sound Tree putting down roots in Paris

The popular Parisian hotel, the Plaza Athenee, is now hosting the Sound Tree music installation, absorbing guests with sound and entertaining them with serious eye candy.

The Sound Tree was created by the pioneering sound and audio design company, Elipson, as part of their Haute Couture speaker project to commemorate their 60th anniversary.

Created by designers Maurizio Galante and Tal Lancman, the sound installation and work of art was unveiled at the International Furniture Fair of Milan will now be housed in the Plaza Athenee Paris until the FIAC International Contemporary Art Fair in October 2011.

Interpreting Elipson’s iconic spherical planet speakers as fruits, the sound system has a trunk-shaped base containing the subwoofer and branch like cables that spread to the ceiling.

At the heart of the Plaza Athenee, the Plaza Bar, designed by Parick Jouin, is a hub of activity as it is the meeting ground of the fashion, party and business worlds in Paris.

Renowned for its celebrations during Fashion Week and its parties, the Plaza Bar will host international DJs during their electro-rock ‘Red Hours’ between 10pm and 2am on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. Guests looking for a more relaxed environment can enjoy the ‘apres-work’ Blue Hours, everyday starting at 6pm.
