FLECHE

A UNIQUE ARCHITECTURE TO SUBLIMATE YOUR EVENT!

Constantly on the lookout for new trends and innovative structures, FUGU® has selected Ekilya® structures (Quaternion) as the keystone of its high-end structures.

The Ekilya® structures allow to sublimate your event. Forget the classic capitals. Choose the difference and amaze your audience!

The “Gridshell” is a unique construction process that uses the deformation of a wooden mesh to create a living space and design while ensuring robustness to the whole.

A NOMIC STRUCTURE BUT ROBUST!

A temporary architecture, removable, reconfigurable and reusable. A resistant and enduring solution: all-terrain and all-weather. Ekilaya adapts flexibly to both soil and weather conditions.

The sorted and selected wood (ash) gives both an aesthetic and a warm side to your event while giving structural rigidity to the Gridshell Arch.

This structure is the adaptation of a centennial constructive principle, originally developed by a Russian engineer for an industrial hall, for its mechanical performance and low material consumption, then in 1970 by Frei Otto, the German architect, Pritzker architecture prize which developed the double tablecloth wood version that allowed to offer in open space, with incredible forms, originally for a plant festival that had to be dismantled and that remained in place.

FUGU® collaborates with Quaternion® today on the events market by proposing these structures for their architectural expressivity and their differentiating side. Developed by French architects, these structures use a unique lifting principle and engineering to ensure a constant development of these structures.
