Sammode, partner of the hamo installation at the Palais de Tokyo.

Sammode is proud to announce its support for the hamo, the new space at the Palais de Tokyo!

Inaugurated in September 2023, the hamo is the Palais de Tokyo's new space dedicated to education, mediation and inclusion through art, in which we are proud to have been able to exhibit Sammode luminaires from our architectural range.

Thanks to the support of the Jonathan KS Choi Foundation, the hamo encourages creation, reflection and sharing around artistic practices, with workshops and meeting spaces over its 500 m².

Designed by Freaks architecture, in collaboration with the Palais de Tokyo, the hamo aims to bring together a wide audience, making this space a place of culture, education and well-being for all.

Freaks Architecture, a firm of three architects

Freaks Architecture is an architectural practice based in Paris, France.

Founded in 2007 by three architects: Guillaume Aubry, Cyril Gauthier and Yves Pasquet, Freaks Architecture is known for its innovative and experimental approach to architectural design.

The name 'Freaks' reflects the firm's unconventional approach to architecture. They have made a name for themselves by exploring bold ideas, pushing the boundaries of creativity and challenging traditional building conventions. Their work is often characterised by unusual concepts and unique architectural forms.

An unprecedented collaboration!

The collaboration between the Palais de Tokyo and Sammode was a natural step, as both share a commitment to innovation and creativity. Sammode has chosen to support the Palais de Tokyo by providing its expertise for the lighting of the hamo space.

Sammode's commitment to the Palais de Tokyo illustrates how a cultural partnership can enrich the artistic landscape by providing cultural institutions with the means to realise ambitious projects. This alliance promises to stimulate artistic creativity while strengthening the Palais de Tokyo's position as a leading cultural centre in Paris.
