Arranged on two floors, located in a street preserved from traffic, this warm place is always reinventing itself in contact with the international artists represented, Manifesta aims to welcome companies, galleries, artists, institutions, designers and authors, for purposes of connection, mediation, sale and transmission.

For companies, this place is resolutely inspiring and creative.


The venue is 210 m2 and is spread over two floors. The central staircase, a historic wooden centerpiece, distributes several rooms, including the exhibition place, the “fireplace lounge” and the “green lounge”.
At the entrance, the "garage" room is a reception area and a also room equipped for meetings, with a Click Share projection system and a Sonos audio system.
Upstairs, the «fireplace lounge» and the «green lounge» are ideal for your small meetings from 6 people. The cosy atmosphere offers you privacy and comfort. Then, the "grand salon", a large reception, conference or meeting space, can accommodate up to 60 people.

The four spaces are rented together. Your meeting is customized and managed by Céline and Nazanin, experts in arts and events in this unique venue.

Run by the Lacroix family since the end of the 19th century, the place was dedicated to the silk trade.
In 2019, Céline Melon, communication-marketing expert and art lover, is working on the renovation of the old studio to make it a cultural event venue, dedicated to both contemporary art and business services.
The decoration was entrusted to the interior architect Claude Cartier. Together, they define a space where inspiration, audacity and respect for the history of the place mingle.
