suspended rainbow playground stretches under the iconic dome of galeries lafayette in paris

a rainbow-colored net suspended in the middle of the second floor of galeries lafayette paris haussmann has transformed the french department store into a giant playground. titled funarea, the installation takes visitors 12 meters above ground, and invites them to lay down and experience the store’s iconic dome, or have fun by bouncing on its stretched circular surface.

funarea is part of the galeries lafayette paris haussmann funorama, which takes visitors back to their childhood through various ‘fun zones’ spread across the entire store, including foosball, polaroid photo booths, and old-school arcade games. in celebration of the summer season, the suspended installation takes center stage right under the department store’s art deco glass dome, and can be accessed via a walkway on the second floor.
