Eiffel Tower Special Light-up Eiffel Tower Dressed in Japanese Lights
Illuminations of the Eiffel Tower, a symbol of Paris and France, remain a powerful artistic gesture during events with an international scope, actively supported by the highest authorities (Paris City Hall, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs or even the Presidency of the French Republic…).
On the occasion of Japonismes 2018, the Eiffel Tower will be adorned for the first time with the colors of Japan by two world-renowned lighting designers: Motoko Ishii, Japanese pioneer in the world of lighting design and her daughter Akari-Lisa Ishii, a renowned Parisian designer.
If Japonismes 2018 aims to provide a new way of seeing and understanding the diverse representations of beauty in Japanese culture, and the aesthetic sensitivity that dwells within it, this artistic installation on the Eiffel Tower is sure to be one of the most brilliant achievements.
