Design duo Fanny Bouchet and Emmanuelle Messier of Byme Architecture have a knack for creating inventive interiors and avant-garde art. This multifaceted talent is particularly evident in Débarrassons le Plancher, an architectural art installation that reimagines history and tricks the eye. Débarrassons le Plancher—Frenchfor “let’s get rid of the floor”—is composed of over 3,000 wooden cubes. Each block was manually cut by the artists and eventually glued by hand to the floor of an ancient fortification in the south of France.
