The CBX tower was built between 2002 and 2005 by the American real estate company: Tishman Speyer, it was thereafter bought by the Franco-Belgian bank Dexia. Twelve years later, the building was sold to its original owner and subject to extensive renovation work.
Tishman Speyer, one of the world’s leading owners, developers, operators and managers of high-end real estate funds, hires Quinette Gallay to renovate the CBX Tower auditorium.
Refined, top-quality leather for the Cube Skate seat
For this project, Quinette Gallay requested the expertise of the Sahuc & Katchoura architects and scenographers agency. The agency is known for its architectural standards, while complying with specifications and its ability to meet the needs and expectations of its clients.
The Cube Skate model was chosen for the supply of the 80 seats of the CBX Tower Auditorium. The leather used for these seats was provided by Relma. This fine quality leather is processed according to a century-old artisanal technique, whose know-how is renowned and was granted by the label: Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant.
A unique auditorium, with a panoramic view
Unlike traditional auditoriums usually located in basements or blind rooms, the CBX Tower auditorium is nested on the 31st floor. This panoramic view of La Défense bathing the room with light makes it even more special. To highlight the architectural detailing of the site, a bright red colour was chosen for one of the side walls, in symbiosis with the white leather of the seats.
A successful project that arouses interest for an upcoming collaboration
After this first collaboration to the satisfaction of both partners, new projects are being reviewed in order to create a long lasting relationship.
