Viparis newest venue will be ready and functional by September 2022 at the Paris La Défense district. CNIT Forest, which has been designed by architect Nicolas Adam and renowned illustrator François Schuiten, will feature 20,000 m2 of modular spaces across four levels. These include two amphitheatres with 740 and 1,175 seats, respectively, 24 meetings rooms and two multi-purpose spaces (2,186 and 2,859 m2), each of which can accommodate two simultaneous events. The main hall can welcome up to 800 guests in a drinks reception configuration. The site is fully accessible for persons with reduced mobility.
Along with creating a building as close to the natural element as possible, the venue will offer high-density Wi-Fi. The amphitheatres will be equipped with ultra-quiet 4K video projectors, an immersive sound system, integrated lighting effects and a remote-controlled PTZ camera and encoder for video capture and streaming. The conference rooms will be equipped with 4K LED screens with Clickshare-type wireless connections, an integrated sound system with wireless microphones, connected desks and a video conferencing and streaming system.
“Europe’s largest business district needs venues that can meet the requirements of the professionals who work there and who visit from time to time. Thanks to architect Nicolas Adam and artist/scenographer François Schuiten, CNIT Forest’s spaces will combine a natural and sustainable environment with the highest technological standards, in order to provide our guests with a unique experience,” says Pablo Nakhlé Cerruti, CEO of Viparis.
