A sustainable developed design

The company behind the Eiffel Tower's operation launched a call for tenders to create a temporary terrace on the first floor of the monument, planned for operation from 6 June to 30 August 2015.
In light of COP 21, the terrace had to be environmentally friendly. Importance was placed on the use of recycled and reusable materials. Crystal Group, thanks to its sustainable approach to sustainable development, won the tender. The project used materials such as wood, metal, boat sails, Lycra and plants...
