Wood taking place in theater

Formerly known as the Feux de la Rampe, the theater near the Folies Bergère has just been acquired by the industrial group Les Manufactures Février and the company Coq Héron Productions.

Renamed LA SCENE PARISIENNE, this iconic venue is located at 34 rue Richer in the 9th arrondissement of Paris.

To give it new impetus, molded plywood factories, Régnier and Cardineau, helped to dress this new place of culture in Paris.

Wood, a witness to the modernity and sustainable development of French cultural sites

Wood is available in all applications and the richness of its hues and natural sensuality bring warmth and well-being to cultural places.

We remember the Philharmonie de Paris which is composed of 25 tons of wood: beech, birch, cherry and whose walls are completely covered with wood.

Other cultural venues such as the Château de Rentilly have also chosen wood for the renewal of their furniture. A series of furniture designed by the architect Elisabeth Lemercier has been produced to meet the needs of the FRAC Ile de France. Produced from beech plywood, the wood comes from the Brugère peeling company in Burgundy. The pieces were designed to be simply assembled manually without glue or hardware. A true technical feat of the architecture firm Bona Lemercier.

It must be said that wood is all good: this material warms our rooms, brings them a green touch but especially a good dose of elegance. Whether it is light or dark, dull or shiny, wood is one of the most popular materials, and is particularly famous for its Scandinavian style, which has been a staple for many years.


Elements of natural wood furniture


The design of the Théâtre La Scène Parisienne was conceived to be simple and functional while having a singular and elegant aesthetic, it was notably the objective of working with the group Les Manufactures Février, to which belongs in particular Cardineau who realized the standing eats of the Scene Café.

The advantage with the high bar is that it can adapt to all times of the day - we have lunch, we work, we find ourselves around a coffee to discuss after a beautiful play.

The style of the dining table has also been thought of in a natural way with its black granite top resting on solid molded walnut plywood feet. The machining of the legs gives all its originality to the table and at the same time testifies to the robustness of this material.

To be consistent with this spirit of relaxation and simplicity, the counter of Café Librairie rue Richer, was tailored to the space of the room. It consists of a walnut structure and a glass top. At the back, it offers great storage possibilities.


These two elements were assembled by the high-end furniture company Maison Chartier with which the Manufactures Février and Cardineau had already collaborated.

Finally, combining a blend of originality and simplicity, the lighting designed by Louis Kagan, a young interior designer adorns the ceiling of the Café Scene.

The shelves are also the result of a collaboration with the designer Aurélien Veyrat, founder of Objet Optimisé based in Lille. The "module L" is a piece of bent wood. "He is playful and adapts. There is in storage what the stone is in the building : the original element, support for creation and expression of modularity. These shelves need neither screws nor glue to be assembled.


Resting on a solid base in plywood walnut and stainless steel, the hulls of the chair and stool - designed at Regnier - have an ergonomic curve to have an ideal comfort.


With nearly 300 shows a week and 130 theaters, Paris is undeniably the theater capital. Witnesses to a remarkable architectural and intellectual heritage, Parisian theaters are synonymous with curiosity, pleasure, openness to the world and passion for writing. Over time, the wood has found its place in these places. This material, synonymous with tradition, nobility and conviviality will decorate our performance rooms and cafés for a long time !
