26 custom-made shades for the Marseillaise tower
La Marseillaise, designed by the firm Ateliers Jean Nouvel is surprising with its modern design and 26 customised colours. At 135 metres high, it contributes to the development of the Marseille skyline. The tower is clad with a mesh consisting of Ductal® sun screens and sills. All these elements have been stained in tricolour shades of blue-white-red. For this colossal project, Ateliers Jean Nouvel called upon Guard Industrie who developed 26 customised colours of its ProtectGuard® Color AntiGraffiti concrete stain.
